The Trouble with Testing | DMLcentral

The Trouble with Testing | DMLcentral | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

Learning research consistently shows that an emphasis on test scores does not necessarily lead to gains in academic performance. Perhaps learning, with its long-term gains and diffuse experiences does not lend itself well to an economic model. Instead of focusing on test scores at the elementary and secondary levels, why not take a longer-term view? Why public education? What are our true goals for teaching and learning? When pressed, most politicians will state that the long-term goals of education are to develop a citizenry that maximizes contributions to society and economy; yet, our standard test measures typically seem unrelated to the higher-order qualities that lead to such engaged citizens.

Tracy Mehoke (梅恬溪)'s curator insight, July 22, 2013 5:30 AM

This article makes some good and concise points against standardized testing, but it doesn't really say anything we don't think already.  What we really need now are new evaluation and assessment tools based on updated goals for education.

Tracy Mehoke (梅恬溪)'s comment, July 22, 2013 5:56 AM
I appreciated the mention that despite ranking in the middle on PISA tests, the USA continues to rank highly in global innovation. What exactly are we trying to measure again ;P ?

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, April 11, 12:45 PM
Over the last decade, eLearning has grown as the preferred means of learning worldwide – both in education as well as the corporate world. This popularity and success is due to the evident fact that eLearning is more cost effective and convenient, while increasing opportunities for perineal learning – a definite need for the modern corporate learner today. eLearning has several advantages over traditional learning, especially when coupled with technology-aided delivery which opens up the opportunity of learning anytime and anywhere. Learners can access online course material, irrespective of time and place. For adult learners, reflection is a huge part of learning, which encourages assimilation of information – turning it into knowledge which they can apply at work. eLearning allows learners to reflect on the learning materials and their responses, and permits them to work at their own pace, regardless of race, sex, disability, or appearance. A number of learning theories can be applied in eLearning, and developers have to choose the one that suits the needs of their learners as well as align well to the strength of a technology-aided medium. The application of Gagné’s 9 Events of Instruction in eLearning lists the following events of instruction:
