Assessment: Turning a Blunt Instrument Into a Powerful Learning Tool

Assessment: Turning a Blunt Instrument Into a Powerful Learning Tool | Online Learning Assessment | Scoop.it

Wouldn’t it be great if schools didn’t turn a finely honed learning skill that all students master to some degree (if they can read and write, for example) into a blunt instrument for institutional measurement that clearly hasn’t been working? 

learning designer's insight:

It’s ironic that assessment in schools is most often “something adults do to students.

Marc My Words: Own the Assessment, Not the Course by Marc J. Rosenberg

Marc My Words: Own the Assessment, Not the Course by Marc  J. Rosenberg | Online Learning Assessment | Scoop.it

Think in a different way about the age-old question, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” Which comes first, the assessment (the test) or the course?

"We talk about evaluation all the time, but do we consistently do a good job at it? Probably not—and this is a big problem. Writing a few multiple-choice questions at the end of a training module is not nearly enough. Evaluation and assessment is more important than ever, and it’s not so easy to do. In the end, it is both sophisticated science as well as art. Build your capabilities here."

Examining Your Multiple-Choice Questions

Examining Your Multiple-Choice Questions | Online Learning Assessment | Scoop.it

As Ron Berk (known for his pithy humor) observes, the multiple-choice question “holds world records in the categories of most popular, most unpopular, most used, most misused, most loved and most hated.”
