Portfolio Asessment

Portfolio Asessment - learning tools in the portfolio


Via Patty Ball
Mary Starry's insight:

Liked this article's emphasis on students' learning to identify their own learning strategies and then think and reflect on what works best for them as learning strategies. I firmly believe students that perform best are those who understand and utilize the tools that work best for them.  Students who struggle often need to formally undertake this process to become more successful students.

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer | Pharmacy Education for Clinical Pharmacists | 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."


Via Beth Dichter, Dennis T OConnor
Mary Starry's insight:

"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.

Interesting article on assessment strategies.

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..
