Rethinking Assessment: Trusting Teachers to Evaluate Student Learning

Rethinking Assessment: Trusting Teachers to Evaluate Student Learning | Classroom activities: Assessment and Technology | Scoop.it
Many educators are hoping that through the Common Core State Standards, teaching and assessment can focus more on problem-solving and the process of getting to an answer. But even those process-oriented skills will be assessed with a standardized test. The benefits of the harder-to-quantify skills aren't easily disentangled from academic achievement scores, making it hard to prove through tests that alternative teaching and learning styles can achieve measurable outcomes.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, September 9, 11:13 PM

Teaching isn't easy. It requires a myriad of skills and constant learning. To think a multiple choice test can even to begin to touch the learning that takes place in classrooms is to not really understand learning.
