Finding The Success In Failure - Choices -Scholastic

Finding The Success In Failure - Choices -Scholastic | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Failure is a hot topic in education. "Failure is critical to learning," my teacher friends tell me. "It teaches kids resilience." Yet who wants their kids to fail? As a parent, I want my kids to succeed.  The challenge is teaching them that failure is not the end of the world. They can brush off, get up again and be better for it.

Here's what will change with the new SAT

Here's what will change with the new SAT | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

SAT prep is a multi-billion dollar industry today. Will the redesigned SAT restore its original goal of providing greater access to higher education for a diverse population?

 

"The revisions to the SAT to begin in March 2016 include a return to the original scoring system of 1,600 for combined math and the newly named “evidenced-based reading” subtests.

Writing an essay will now be optional. The current version (in use since 2004) requires the essay for a three-part test, with a maximum score of 2,400. This optional essay provides greater flexibility for students, particularly for those whose math skills may be much stronger than their writing skills. Such students will not be penalized for a lower writing score.

 

"Importantly, there will be no penalty for guessing on questions – previously a wrong answer got a penalty of a quarter-point. The critical reading section, renamed evidenced-based reading and writing, will use historical documents that have inspired individuals. Examples of this would be speeches by India’s leader of independence movement Mohandas Gandhi, American women’s rights' activist Elizabeth Cady Stanton and civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.

 

"The math revisions are said to be aligned with the Common Core. This section will have less computation and more real-world problems."

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, February 2, 12:23 PM

SAT's redesign makes the assessment more aligned to Common Core Standards in ELA, literacy, and math. Although many people still think the Common Core is going away, the reality is that Common Core Standards have become embedded in national testing, among state's standards (though often renamed), and in the manner by which public discussions and debates are being held.
