Accurately Defining Formative Assessment

Accurately Defining Formative Assessment | Education3.0 | Scoop.it
The sports analogy I recently came upon is great for accurately defining formative assessment and how it should be defined and implemented in the classroom.
Jelmer Evers's insight:

As a concept or practice, formative assessment is a proven winner. Dylan Wiliam’s book – Embedded Formative Assessment – is founded on five strategies that he has come to believe are core to successful formative assessment practice in the classroom:

 

1. Clarifying, sharing, and understanding learning intentions and criteria for success 

2. Engineering effective classroom discussions, activities, and learning tasks that elicit evidence of learning

3. Providing feedback that moves learning

4. Activating learners as instructional resources for one another

5. Activating learners as owners of their own learning

Inequality in American Education Will Not Be Solved Online

Inequality in American Education Will Not Be Solved Online | Education3.0 | Scoop.it
With funding tight, the state of California has turned to Udacity to provide MOOCs for students enrolled in remedial courses. But what is lost when public education is privatized?
Jelmer Evers's insight:

Extremely important piece by Ian Bogost. Privatization of education is a choice with lots of consquences for the common good and wealth. MOOCs replacing normal schooling is a bad and insufficient solution which won't serve those who need education the most

 

"Even if its courses may seem cheaper or more accessible, offering a more viable entree into post-secondary education, they do so by (a) privatizing such an activity among an organization purpose-built to convert the needs of the many into the benefit of the very few and (b) by reframing the social challenges inherent in underserved educational populations as simple problems of content delivery."


"Education, particularly the education of populations that most need it to improve their lot, is tied up with a political and economic situation that is not sufficiently addressed by merely connecting some of its output to the Internet, or by abdicating public responsibility to do otherwise to the first salesman who offers a sort-of viable alternative,"

ProfeRed's curator insight, January 9, 2013 9:57 PM

"Did you know that the education sector now represents nearly 9 percent of the country’s gross domestic product? That for-profit education is valued at $1.3 trillion, and is one of the largest U.S. investment markets?

 

These facts were part of an advertisement for a conference for investors in for-profit education ventures, just one example of how much the profit motive has entered into the public education arena. The conference is one of two examples of how school reform has become little more than a business in some arenas (and just how removed some reformers have gotten from classrooms and the actual dynamic of teaching and learning)..."...
