The 6 Types Of Assessments (And How They're Changing) - Edudemic

The 6 Types Of Assessments (And How They're Changing) - Edudemic | 21st Century Teaching & Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Testing, especially any sort of standardized testing tends to get a bad rap. Teachers complain that they spend too much time teaching to a test. But assessments do have value, and an important place in our learning structure. By measuring what students are learning, we as teachers can look at how we are approaching different subjects, materials, and even different students.

How To Use Formative Assessment With (And Without) Technology - Edudemic

How To Use Formative Assessment With (And Without) Technology - Edudemic | 21st Century Teaching & Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Formative assessment tends to be a little more nebulous, and perhaps harder to nail it down with technology.

Daniel Rimmereid's curator insight, March 25, 2014 9:05 PM

This was a neat little info graphic that gave some quick little snippets of insight into formative assessment. A point I liked was, “formative assessment is not a part of the grading process but it is a part of the instructional process.” I thought this was very helpful to think about, and a nice way to summarize the difference between formative and summative assessment. I also really like how the info graphic had ideas for formative assessment with and without technology. One of the suggestions for without technology was to have students fill out an exit ticket to allow them to leave. They had to write out one thing they learned from the lesson or some teachers can make their students summarize the lesson in a paragraph. One of my favorite technological formative assessments was when the teacher made a hashtag on twitter for students to use as a discussion forum. 

Kenny Evans's curator insight, April 13, 2014 10:23 PM

Since I can not keep my smart phone out of my hands on a day to day basis this is a great link to ideas in incorporating technology with assessment in the classroom as well as ideas for formative assessment without technology.

Would recommend this as compulsory viewing for all teachers:
How can education adapt to the learning styles of children instead of trying to process them all through a limited system?  How can we engage the students who fail to 'fit in' to that system?

Teachers and schools are attempting to leverage the engaging qualities of social media for use in the classroom and beyond.
Linda Buckmaster's insight:

 We know that teenagers  are actively engaged with social media.  We know our students are actively using this technology outside of college...so why do so many colleges ban it? This infographic has been divided into sections exploring reasons why  educators should look at this issue.

Via Mel Riddile, Patrice Bucci
Linda Buckmaster's insight:

Streamling students by ability was condemned back in the 1990s; it appears grouping students by academic ability seems to be back in vogue. Recent trialling across college (for English & Maths) worked extremely well, particularly lower levels.  Results from my own survey showed that 85% of students (entry level) preferred to be grouped and felt less pressurised.

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | 21st Century Teaching & Learning Resources | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.


Via Nik Peachey
Linda Buckmaster's insight:

I totally agree with Marc that we need to involve and listen more to our students.  I have and the results are fantastic; students have their own views and quiet willing to give their input to the curriculum and/or lesson plan when given the opportunity.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

Teaching to the Test: Does Standardized Testing Help or Harm Students? 

Teaching to the Test:  Does Standardized Testing Help or Harm Students?  | 21st Century Teaching & Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Linda Buckmaster's insight:

"There's no secret about the test. It's a standards-based test. We teach to the test." – School District Superintendent Art Revueltas  

 

This infographic highlights one of the biggest points of concern from teachers (USA) of the idea of "teaching to the test".  An investigation was carried about the value placed on standardised testing by requirements such as No Child Left Behind, the desperation to achieve (or appear to achieve) based on these standards, and how factors such as race and income affect performance.

 

The report concluded that minorities and low-income students were at a higher risk for being held back or put in remedial programs based on standardised testing.  The report also found that white, middle and upper-income students often benefit, moving ahead and landing in gifted programmes.
