For some students, laptops trump pen and paper in the classroom, but students and teachers agree that whatever the choice of tools, it’s important to exercise self-discipline to get the most out of the learning experience.

Des dangers des indicateurs dans l'évaluation de la recherche [MYSCIENCENEWS] | Assess Group | Scoop.it
Evaluer la qualité de la recherche scientifique est essentiel dans une société où l’innovation et les progrès techniques dépendent en partie de la recherche académique.

Bernard Rentier's curator insight, January 29, 2013 3:24 AM

Toutefois, les critères et indicateurs peuvent, si ils ne sont pas judicieux, se révéler extrêmement trompeurs. L'illusion du quantifiable peut fausser complètement l'analyse. Par exemple, le sacro-saint facteur d'impact est très imparfait lorsqu'il s'agit d'évaluer un journal et bien pire pour évaluer un chercheur. Juger quelqu'un sur cette base, c'est comme mprestiges qualité d'une personne sur la base du nombre d'étoiles du restaurant où elle dîne.

Measurement and Evaluation: What Is Your Strategy?

"Every important learning program as well as every training function should have a measurement and evaluation strategy. Both the measurement and evaluation parts are important. You can certainly measure without evaluating the results (for example, just collecting level 1 data), and you can evaluate without formal measurement (for example, using the case study method or a focus group)..."

Un nouvel outil pour détecter les plagiats sur le Web, PlagSpotter | Assess Group | Scoop.it

Les spécialistes du copier coller sont légion sur le Web, en deux temps trois mouvements ils vous pompent en toute discrétion le contenu de votre blog pour mettre en ligne de leur côté leur propre site avec l’espoir de rameuter quelques malheureux visiteurs et générer quelques clics publicitaires au passage.

Pour éviter de passer son temps à faire la chasse aux plagieurs, il est plus facile d’utiliser un service spécialisé qui va scruter le Web à votre place afin d’identifier ces sites. Il ne vous restera ensuite qu’à les invectiver par mail avec l’espoir qu’ils cessent leur basse besogne.

Via Tibshirani
Sylvain Briol's insight:

On n'apprend pas de l'expérience: on apprend du feedback sur l'expérience. Pour les évaluations classiques, Assess Group met en place des évaluations poussées, donnant la possibilité d'utiliser des réponses générales et des indices de certitudes. Nous traitons ensuite les résultats avec de multiples outils statistiques, afin de donner aux étudiants, comme à l'enseignant, un feedback extrêmement complet.
Nous mettons également en place des méthodes d'évaluation de compétences complexes qui comprennent, selon les cas, des entretiens individuels et collectifs. Le feedback, pour ces compétences, est évidemment encore plus complexe.

12 Free Online Quiz Makers to Create Online Quizzes | Training & E-Learning Zone for Quizzes | Assess Group | Scoop.it
I often receive a lot of questions about how to make online quizzes for free. Here is a collection of 12 free online quiz making applications I collect after

Via Yuly Asencion
Sylvain Briol's insight:

Here are some tools to create online quizzes.
But having the tools does not mean your test is actually accurate:

Are you sure it assesses the right skills? Are you sure you cover all the elements? Are you sure your question is good? Are you sure your trainees will understand what you ask?

 

Imagine you've never driven a car and you've never seen anyone driving one. Someone gives a car key and just says: "Go, have fun!" ... how long do you think you'll need to find where to put the key, then how to start the engine, and then to even move the car... how long before having fun?
==> Having the tool is useless if you don't know how to use it. Assess Group can help you build quality tests - even for soft skills!

 

... Good ressource though ;)

More Agreement Than Disagreement on How to Assess Teachers

More Agreement Than Disagreement on How to Assess Teachers | Assess Group | Scoop.it

"Disagreements between unions and politicians on how best to assess teachers are not as significant as the amount of agreement." "Where a great deal of consensus lies is around the ideas of a woman named Charlotte Danielson, who 16 years ago created a method for evaluating teachers that judges them according to four domains, each with numerous categories and subcategories: the quality of questions and discussion techniques; a knowledge of students’ special needs; the expectations set for learning and achievement; and the teacher’s involvement in professional development activities. The section for assessing the strength of the classroom-learning environment has 15 criteria — down to the placement of furniture. Ms. Danielson’s program, which also trains principals in how to properly execute the evaluations, is already being used in several states and on a pilot basis in 140 New York City schools (though in the experimental phase the outcomes will have no consequence). In November, a study out of the University of Chicago that looked at Ms. Danielson’s method as it was practiced in Chicago schools determined that it was not only a considerable improvement over an old evaluation system but that, just as significant, it established a shared definition of what good teaching was. Ms. Danielson, who runs her own educational consulting firm in Princeton, N.J., is perfectly suited to appeal to potentially opposing sides in the debates about education reform. As an Oxford-trained economist, she thinks both entrepreneurially and progressively. In the late 1960s she gave up research stints at the Council of Economic Advisers and the Brookings Institution to work as a teacher in Washington’s ailing public school system. 'If all you do is judge teachers by test results,' she told me when I visited her this week, 'it doesn’t tell you what you should do differently.'"
