Common Core: "Implementation poses a particular challenge for teachers." | NEA Today

Common Core: "Implementation poses a particular challenge for teachers." | NEA Today | College and Career-Ready Standards for School Leaders | Scoop.it

"The common-core standards envision a higher level of rigor based on the deeper understanding of a pared-down number of curricular aims.

Teaching Writing using Computers: Pros and Cons

Teaching Writing using Computers: Pros and Cons | College and Career-Ready Standards for School Leaders | Scoop.it

There are some things computers really can do better than humans. But what about writing?

"Mark Shermis (pictured) heads up the University of Akron College of Education. Earlier this year, he co-authored a study of nine different essay-grading computer programs. Shermis says that on shorter writing assignments the computer programs matched grades from real live humans up to 85 percent of the time. But on longer, more complicated responses, the technology didn’t do quite as well."
