U.S. Schools To See How They Stack Up Globally in New Pilot

U.S. Schools To See How They Stack Up Globally in New Pilot | college and career ready | Scoop.it
Veteran Education Week reporters Catherine Gewertz and Erik Robelen bring you news and analysis of issues at the core of classroom learning.
Lynnette Van Dyke's insight:

About 100 U.S. high schools will soon find out how their students measure up compared with their peers across the globe.

The schools are taking part in a new pilot program to test the knowledge and skills of 15-year-olds in reading, math, and science on an exam based on PISA, the high-profile international assessment, as I explain in a new EdWeek story.

Each participating school will get a report with a variety of information about its performance, plus comparative tables to put student achievement in context. Organizers and participants say the pilot offers a chance for individual schools to compare their achievement levels globally on an assessment intended to measure higher-order thinking skills. They also emphasize that the pilot is intended to help schools take away valuable lessons to improve instruction.

Giving Student Feedback: 20 Tips To Do It Right - InformED

Giving Student Feedback: 20 Tips To Do It Right - InformED | college and career ready | Scoop.it

It seems as if it was yesterday that I was a young middle school student giving a class presentation on the lifespan of the killer whale.  While I was prepared, I was also horribly nervous.  At the conclusion of my speech I was given verbal feedback from my teacher–in front of the entire class!  Needless to say, it wasn’t glowing.  I remember that feedback to this day because it was negative, defeating and very embarrassing.
