Research by University of Oxford academics provides evidence that student satisfaction scores are unconnected to exam performance

Research by University of Oxford academics provides evidence that student satisfaction scores are unconnected to exam performance | Instructional Design for You! | Scoop.it

Student satisfaction scores should not be used to measure teaching quality because they have no discernible link with exam performance, a leading University of Oxford academic has claimed.

 

While results from the National Student Survey are likely to be used as a key indicator in the government’s proposed teaching excellence framework, a study by Tim Lancaster, director of clinical studies at Oxford, concludes that they have “little or no value as a quality metric” .

Dr Lancaster compared the NSS results of 28 UK medical schools with the average pass rates achieved by their students in exams sat by all trainee doctors two years after graduation.

 

There was no correlation between good results in the NSS and performance in the exams set by the General Medical Council, according to the study “Assessing the quality of UK medical schools: what is the validity of student satisfaction ratings as an outcome measure?”, which is due to be published shortly by Dr Lancaster.

This is a really practical short article focusing on the 'how' of incorporating innovative thinking in the classroom.  I liked that it contained lots of suggestions and 'verbs' to create lesson objectives or learning targets; essential questions or understandings for units; assessment questions; scoring guides or rubrics for projects, for choice boards for differentiated learning, and so on.

I like the concepts in this article- however I would love a bit more practical advice at how I extend my teaching strategies to promote innovative thinking
