The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer | FORMACIÓN CONTINUADA EN EL ÁMBITO SANITARIO | 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..

Your 5 Minute Guide To Shine On The Web With The New Scoop.it

Your 5 Minute Guide To Shine On The Web With The New Scoop.it | FORMACIÓN CONTINUADA EN EL ÁMBITO SANITARIO | Scoop.it

It’s no secret the the crazy world that we affectionately refer to as the Internet is full of noise and chaos. When developing an online content strategy, professionals and small businesses always end up asking themselves the same question: “I’ve got all of this amazing content, but how will I be found?”

The 10 Hottest Fields of Science Research | Wired Science

The 10 Hottest Fields of Science Research | Wired Science | FORMACIÓN CONTINUADA EN EL ÁMBITO SANITARIO | Scoop.it

Scientific research is a large and sprawling endeavor, with thousands of laboratories around the world studying their own ultra-specialized piece of a much more significant whole. It’s the logical intersection of reductionist scientific heritage and centuries of technological advances: in order to advance our understanding of the world around us, we must pursue increasingly specific sub-disciplines, from retina neural computation to space plasma physics.

 

Which is why Thomson Reuters’ scene-scoping study on “100 Key Scientific Research Fronts” is a welcome report for science enthusiasts eager to stay updated on cutting-edge research but lacking the time to read every issue of Science or Nature cover-to-cover.

 

The report ranks research areas with a special sauce formula that first divides the entirety of scientific research into 8,000 categories that form the “Thomson Reuters Essential Science Indicators” database. Within each subdivision, a set of core papers is designated by frequent and clustered citations, identifying foundational scientific literature that earned a lot of shout outs in reports of subsequent discoveries. To find today’s hottest research fields, only core papers published between 2007-2012 were considered; the number of citations of those papers and their average publication date were compiled. As the report notes, “a research front with many core papers of recent vintage often indicates a fast-moving or hot specialty.”

 

This doesn’t necessarily mean these fields are the most important or the most beneficial to society – it just means scientists (and, by extension, groups funding the research) are getting pretty excited about what they’re learning. Here, we take a quick look at the hottest research front in each of ten thematic categories – the sharpest of the cutting edge.

Abby Fellows - Smith's curator insight, October 3, 2013 7:05 AM

I loved this article. It broke down ten ways in which iPads are productive in aiding children how to learn. The aid of pictures with headlines and quotes made it enjoyable to read. Instead of one long story it was broken down nicely so that it is easy to retain the information that you read. I particularly enjoyed the insight into the "the risk - taker" aspect of using the iPad. It is great to know that technology is aiding in the education of future generations

Sarah-Jane Davies's insight:

The introduction of iPads into the classroom is a very controversial topic. Many people believe that it is not suitable for school children. For example, people say that children lose their ability to write since they are no longer using pens or paper. However, this article fives many examples of why it is actually a positive thing. The article is fun to read since it is written in a concise list and contains interesting cartoon pictures at each point. Each point is also extended by reasons and examples of why the specific point is positive.  The viewpoint is legitimate since it is coming from a teacher. The teacher has a good perspective since he deals with children every day.
