The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer | Feedback | Scoop.it

"The difference between assessment of learning and assessment for learning is a crucial one, in many ways indicative of an important shift in education.

Traditionally, tests have told teachers and parents how a student “does,” then offers a very accessible point of data (usually percentage correct and subsequent letter grade) that is reported to parents as a performance indicator."

"Assessment for learning" versus "assessment of learning" is also promoted as a key component of the learning portfolio all colleges of pharmacy need to have to demonstrate student achievement.

I have practiced a system that covers four of the 5 key strategies for many years starting at five years of age.  I would not teach any other way. With this kind of assessment students after seven years of age can lead parent teacher conferences with ease and confidence. Had a dad in tears once who confessed it was the first time his son had talked meaningfully to him about his learning. Then I was in tears too....

A good little diagram but it does not address the issue of how to do it..it requires modelling, first by the teacher, then slowly devolving the responsibility to the learner, and focus on one subject area at a time e.g. Literacy . In my experience it also requires set aside time with each student to assess together, recording what has been discussed so it is not forgotten. I am talking about elementary learners here..

Classroom Behavior Observation. Part of my role as the RtI Coordinator is making behavioral observations on specific students. If I had a nickel for each student I've observed in the past few weeks...I'd have at least $2.

Improving Written Feedback - HuntingEnglish

Improving Written Feedback - HuntingEnglish | Feedback | Scoop.it

by Alex Quigley

 

"This week I gave a seminar at TeachMeet Clevedon. I am going to post more fully on my topic of teachers getting better by undertaking ‘deliberate practice‘ sometime soon. One smaller aspect of my presentation was how teachers can improve written feedback, both to improve learning and to marginally reduce the time taken to give written feedback. With the gift of more time we can free ourselves to pursue becoming a better teacher more deliberately: with reflection, planning and deliberate practice. Of course, written feedback is so crucial that it can improve teaching and learning significantly, therefore it deserves our attention in its own right.

 

"The following list of tips is a synthesis of my experience and that of my English department (see our policy for feedback here). It also draws upon many excellent teachers and their cumulative experience of effective written feedback."

Measures of Effective Teaching Project Releases Final Research Report

Measures of Effective Teaching Project Releases Final Research Report | Feedback | Scoop.it

In January 2013, the MET project released its third and final set of findings, which sought to answer three questions from practitioners and policy-makers: Can measures of effective teaching identify teachers who better help students learn?; How much weight should be placed on each measure of effective teaching when combining classroom observations, student surveys, and student achievement gains?; And how can teachers be assured trustworthy results from classroom observations?

There are a few reports here and quite a few other useful documents that can help with this really important issue.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 22, 2013 12:04 PM

I am never sure about the need to apply measures and numbers only to quality of something. It is seems so counter-intuitive. What number do we put on care, compassion, empathy, and honesty in a person?

Vanessa Monell Mercado's comment, June 23, 2013 12:17 PM
I agree, sadly those things cannot be measure with numbers and it seems more and more people disregard their importance in our craft!
