Apps for Students | Dyslexia & Reading Difficulties - NCLD | College Readiness - Remediation | Scoop.it
Reading is the area in which students with dyslexia struggle the most. Luckily, there are mobile apps that can help with functions like text-to-speech translation.

Elahe Amani's insight:

This app is a powerful tool for students with Dyslexia.  Many of these tools have other unintended benefits... This is a good tool for English as a second language learners...

Final College-Readiness Definition - PARCC

Final College-Readiness Definition - PARCC | College Readiness - Remediation | Scoop.it

PARCC's policy will be that students earn the "college readiness" determination by performing at level 4 on a 5-level test.

 

ELA

 

Reaching that level on the language arts part of the exam will mean that students have "demonstrated the academic knowledge, skills, and practices necessary" to skip remedial classes and go directly into entry-level, credit-bearing courses in "college English composition, literature, and technical courses requiring college-level reading and writing."

 

Math

 

Scoring at level 4 in math allows students to enroll directly in entry-level, credit-bearing courses in algebra, introductory statistics, and "technical courses requiring an equivalent level" of math.

 

Scale

5 = "distinguished" command

4 = "strong" 

3 = "moderate"

2 = "partial"

1 = "minimal"

The Ed Techie: If education were free, what would MOOCs be? | College Readiness - Remediation | Scoop.it
Here's a thought experiment, if there were no students fees and higher education were free, what would that do to MOOCs? I mean, obviously it'll never happen... oh, wait, Germany just abolished student fees.

25 more states draft definition of college readiness

25 more states draft definition of college readiness | College Readiness - Remediation | Scoop.it

By Catherine Gewertz

 

Twenty-five states have taken a big step toward designing a shared assessment: They've drafted an initial definition of what college readiness means, and descriptions of the skills and knowledge students must demonstrate at each step of the way toward that goal.

 

Released today, the college-readiness definition and the descriptors of achievement on each level of the test are part of the work of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, one of two federally funded groups of states that are designing assessment systems for the Common Core State Standards.

* Do standardized tests truly prepare students for college? 

* Are the expectations expected by high schools set at appropriate levels?

* Do students have the appropriate social skills necessary for college?

An additional seven issues are also explored in this post.
