Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Inviting students into learning means they may not complete the work. A thoughtful teacher does not move on. They look for new ways of inviting students into learning.

Student Motivation: It’s More Complicated Than We Think

Student Motivation: It’s More Complicated Than We Think | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Motivation—there are two kinds: intrinsic, which involves doing something because we want to do it, and extrinsic, which is doing something because we have to do it. A negative relationship exists between the two.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Motivation is complex and very individual.

Sharrock's curator insight, January 15, 9:24 AM

excerpt: "In his research he identified 16 distinct universal reinforcements that he developed into an assessment tool called the Reiss Motivation Profile. “Everybody is motivated by the 16 universal reinforcements, but not in the same way. Individuals show reliable individual differences in how they prioritize these 16 reinforcements.” (pp. 154-155) These 16 reinforcements are listed in the article and they include the following motivations (among others): eating, the desire for food; curiosity, the desire for understanding; independence, the desire for self-reliance; social contact, the desire for peer companionship; and vengeance, the desire to confront those who offend."

More Progressive Ways to Measure Deeper Level of Learning

More Progressive Ways to Measure Deeper Level of Learning | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

How do we measure learning beyond knowledge of content? Finding that winning combination of criteria can prove to be a complicated and sometimes difficult process.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Rubrics do become disguised as quantitative measures and outcome checklists. Used well, they can offer a qualitative approach to feedback and learning.

5 Fundamental Assessment Resources From Learnist

5 Fundamental Assessment Resources From Learnist | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

"Education is all about the numbers these days. My personal preference is just the opposite.

I have this fantasy where I toss grades in the garbage. In this dream, I let everyone redo things and have conferences to discuss improvement."


Via Beth Dichter, Dean J. Fusto
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

"Education is all about the numbers these days. My personal preference is just the opposite." This is an interesting line. What makes it necessary to measure only with numbers?

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 18, 2013 7:50 PM

As teachers must is expected from us daily and more and more we are asked to do assessments. Many of us think of testing as soon as we hear assessment. This post discusses assessment stating "assessment isn’t always employed correctly. It sometimes gets over, under, or misused. Assessment should work seamlessly into the classroom routine. The traditional test can be intrusive and stressful. True assessment flows into the lessons and gives a constant pulse on student learning."

The author then provides links to five Learnist boards that focus on assessment, specifically:

* Simple Ways to Monitor Student Progress

* Assessment

* Exemplar Rubrics for Assessment

* Socrative Response Systems

* Metryx

The first three boards have seven to ten resources. The last two links are on a board that is called 21st Century Assessment - Digital Documentation and additional resources are also found here.
