Examinations and Assessments : Uses and Misuses in 21st Century Education

Examinations and Assessments : Uses and Misuses in 21st Century Education | professional learning | Scoop.it

Education around the world is conducted with the help of exams and assessments. Many of us wonder why in Finland, their way of education and assessing students have not led to drilling and pressure for children? Why in the US, parents, schools and even administrators are rethinking the value and form of standardized tests for young students? How are public standardized assessments being used in HK and other parts of the world? What are their uses and misuses?
