The Trouble with Testing | DMLcentral

The Trouble with Testing | DMLcentral | Digital school test | Scoop.it
It’s obviously summer because my news alerts are no longer steadily reporting concerns about education, our children’s future, the problems with teachers, etc.
Dafnord 's insight:

Teachers invest a lot of their working time on correcting tests. Is this investment really productive? Do students really take advantage of the corrections of the tests? And does it really make sense to assess students by comparing them against each other?

The 6 Types Of Assessments (And How They’re Changing)

The 6 Types Of Assessments (And How They’re Changing) | Digital school test | Scoop.it
Testing, especially any sort of standardized testing tends to get a bad rap. Teachers complain that they spend too much time teaching to a test.

Dafnord 's insight:

Assessment should develop into e-assessment when learning transforms from non-digital to digital. Does a child grow taller if you measure him or her more often? No. Testing in school is based on the idea that a child learns better when tested. So, mental measuring has some effect on the child, whereas physical measuring doesn't have. Sounds reasonable. But is it true?

Testing is so popular in my country that one of the main things children learn in school is how to be tested. Many are so indoctrinated after school that they can't even figure out life without testing. Unfortunately, there are only few jobs where employees are tested on a standing basis ;-).
