Interesting brief insight about how important it is for children to be able to express their opinions and to what this possibility leads - a more studentcentred learning environment.

Demystifying Student Assessment

Demystifying Student Assessment | ICT in Assessment | Scoop.it
Quite simply, the only way that a teacher knows if a student has learned something is to require the student to demonstrate that knowledge in some way. Assessments help teachers and students to pinpoint which aspects of instruction need to be adjusted to help a student acquire a learning goal. But there are two different types of assessments that happen throughout a student’s academic career.Assessment FOR Learning Assessment OF Learning Knowing the Difference Between the Two Types of AssessmentSchool systems need to provide opportunities for both types of assessment–formative and summative. They perform different, important roles and should be part of a balanced assessment system. Having said that, it is also important for educators to limit the number of assessments that they administer. Educators need to be prudent in their choices and ensure that–above all else–instructional time is maximized for learning.

This article has tools to help you create those online assessments.Let me know which are your favorite tools.

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer - TeachThought

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer - TeachThought | ICT in Assessment | 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.

 

Class data can be gathered to imply instructional effectiveness, and the data from multiple classrooms can be combined to suggest the performance of an entire school, but a core message here is one of measurement and finality: this is how you did. This was the bar, and you either cleared it or you didn’t.

 

And it’s all past tense."

"Worthy assessments should reflect the broader capabilities that students need to thrive in the 21st century."

Shona Leitch's curator insight, September 29, 2013 6:29 PM

I love this article, it has a very strong message and opens up the importance of not just "soft skills" but those hard to teach ones, creativity, innovation and in my discipine entrepreneurship.

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 19, 2015 8:04 PM

One cannot think without content to think with and about. No doubt that students need foundational skills in order to actually use critically thinking and problem solving skills. But when in their life will they need to remember the facts from the textbook? How will they use what they memorized directly from a book? In education today, the focus is on quality control- making the grade, having top scores. The focus has shift away from teaching students those lifelong learning skills that they really need like creativity, common sense, how to win or lose, work ethic, etc. At the end of the day, our assessments of students need to match what they will be expected to do and perform in the real world. No perfect score will teach students how to be a good worker or how to follow their dreams without defeat.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, February 28, 2013 11:29 PM

This article discusses how Information and Communication Technologies can support 21st century assessment strategies and what needs to be done to ensure that technological advances support and foster pedagogical innovation. Based on an extensive review of the literature, it provides an overview of current ICT-enabled assessment practices, with a particular focus on the more recent developments of ICT-enhanced assessment tools that recognise 21st century skills. The article also refers to relevant cases of eAssessment, looks into examples of the potential of emerging technologies for eAssessment and discusses some relevant innovation and policy issues. Reflecting on these examples, it argues that, although technological challenges exist, the more pressing task at present is to transcend the traditional testing paradigm and conceptually develop (e)Assessment strategies that allow to more fully exploit the benefits of emerging technologies in order to foster the development of 21st century skills.

Rigorous Assessment, by Design

Rigorous Assessment, by Design | ICT in Assessment | Scoop.it

"The purpose of education is to cultivate and develop students who are not merely good at school, but also good at life. However, most traditional assessments promote the acquisition of superficial knowledge that can easily be 'crammed' by learners. These types of tasks don’t prepare students for the messiness of life. The best assessments embrace the challenges and ambiguity involved in real, adult work." | by Kristen Swanson

This essay provides a good exposition of a high-level thinking skill (transfer), and thus lays a good groundwork for encouraging interdisciplinary studies.  I wish, though, the author had spent some time addressing some of the more fundamental forms of knowledge and skills necessary before students can begin cultivating their facility with "transfer."

"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.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 6, 2013 8:40 PM

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....

Aunty Alice's curator insight, November 21, 2013 8:03 PM

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..
