Measuring What Matters in Admission - Lets Add Character Assessment

Measuring What Matters in Admission - Lets Add Character Assessment | Woodbury Reports Inc.(TM) Week-In-Review | Scoop.it

There is no doubt that the continued measurement of cognitive skills for academic preparedness will remain part of a student’s application to independent schools, yet SSATB’s trustees agree with the Think Tank’s thesis and have funded a pilot project to develop a tool for character assessment. We expect our research work will demonstrate that each student’s social/emotional qualities, habits of mind, and intrapersonal biases for certain types of action are important for their success not only in our schools — but in college and in life. 
 
Scholar Robert Sternberg reminds us: "Traditional standardized tests, and even school grades, give us good information about some valued skills of students, but practically no information about other valued skills. 


Via Lou Salza
Lon Woodbury's insight:

This is exactly what the old "Emotional Growth" residential schools were focusing on back in the 80s and 90s.  Its a concept that was inherent in the McGuffy readers of the 19th century.  As stated here, the concept just makes sense and the task is to "modernize" it into sophisticated tools. -Lon

Lou Salza's curator insight, April 16, 10:49 AM

I applaud and support the move towards assessments in independent school admission that look at the qualities of character that we know contribute to leadership, resilience, engaged citizenship, life and career success. Kudos to Heather Hoerle and the SSAT 'Think Tank on the Future of Assessment'. This is where all independent schools ought to be putting their oars in the water!--Lou

Lou Salza's comment, April 16, 11:27 AM
Lon, I loved the comment you made! Still have the McGuffey readers on my shelf at school. I browse them often and wonder what happened to our focus on character as the foundation on which schools ought to be building learning communities.

Getting Mental Health Treatment Right- Short Interview

Getting Mental Health Treatment Right- Short Interview | Woodbury Reports Inc.(TM) Week-In-Review | Scoop.it

Why and how does a therapist or treatment program select what treatment approach to use? Dr. Tom Brunner, a clinical psychologist located in Tucson Arizona, joined Lon on April 29, 2015 to answer this question. An important tool is called Evidence Based Programming, which is basically advocating using methods that have been successful over the years.

Lon Woodbury's insight:

Few clients of therapists think about the thought process a therapist goes through before beginning a therapy series, but there is a multitude of methods any therapist can use.    Dr. Tom Brunner sheds some light on the factors that would be considered before starting the sessions, and one of those is the relevance of Evidence Based Programming.  He explains its advantages and weaknesses. -Lon

Seven Reasons We Hate Free-Range Parenting - Bloomberg View

Seven Reasons We Hate Free-Range Parenting - Bloomberg View | Woodbury Reports Inc.(TM) Week-In-Review | Scoop.it
Why has America gone lunatic on the subject of unattended children?

Via Penrith Farms
Lon Woodbury's insight:

"Insane" seems to be the best word.  For what its worth, in my work with struggling teens, I've seen many more kids damaged by over-protective parents than I have kids damaged by abusive or neglectful parents. -Lon

Penrith Farms's curator insight, April 15, 6:07 PM

Sorry, I have been quoting today:


Why has America gone lunatic on the subject of unattended children? Parents hover over their kids as if every step might be their last. If they don't hover, strangers do, calling the police to report any parent who leaves their child to run into the store for a few minutes. What's truly strange is that the parents who are doing this were themselves left to their own devices in cars, allowed to ride their bikes and walk to the store unsupervised, and otherwise given the (limited) freedom that they are now determined to deny their own kids. The police are making arrests that would have branded their own parents as criminals. To hear people my age talk about the dangers of unsupervised children, you would think that the attrition rate in our generation had been at least 30 percent.
