International Test Scores Expose U.S. Education Problem | Dyslexia DiaBlogue® | Scoop.it

The U.S. performed above average on international standardized tests in elementary and middle school math, science and reading, according to reports released Tuesday.

Lou Salza's curator insight, December 13, 2012 5:21 PM

Early reading screenings that  focus on a child's competence in the alphebet (names and sounds of the letters), rapid serial object, or  color naming, and phonemic awareness ( understanding of how discrete sounds are blended to make syllables and words) can indicate the degree to which a 1st, 2nd or 3rd grader is at risk for lerning to read in school. 

 

Problems in these skills areas do not generally improve without intervention, and without skills in these areas, progress to become a skilled reader is unlikely.

 

The Assessmnet Center at Lawrence School in northeast Ohio uses the Predeictive Assessment  of Reading. It is fast, accurate, and inexpensive.

Eduwonk » Blog Archive » Bellying Up To The Bar – Again. Why A “Bar Exam” For Teachers Misses The Point | Dyslexia DiaBlogue® | Scoop.it

Harriet Sanford of the NEA Foundation discusses the idea of rounds – like medical students – and more generally at the problem of reform churn. The idea of rounds and clinical-style training for new teachers has a lot of merit, but more generally it seems everyone wants education to be like medicine – or law. The “new” idea for a “bar exam” for teachers (Albert Shanker floated the concept in 1985) modeled on how they do it in the legal field is back in the news as the AFT rolls it out as a new initiative.
