How To Add Rigor To Anything

How To Add Rigor To Anything | Rigor | Scoop.it

"

"Rigor is a fundamental piece of any learning experience.

It is also among the most troublesome due to its relativity. Rigorous for whom? And more importantly, how can you “cause” it?

Barbara Blackburn, author of “Rigor is not a 4-Letter Word,” shared 5 “myths” concerning rigor, and they are indicative of the common misconceptions: that difficult, dry, academic, sink-or-swim learning is inherently rigorous.

Myth #1: Lots of Homework is a Sign of Rigor
Myth #2: Rigor Means Doing More
Myth #3: Rigor is Not For Everyone
Myth #4: Providing Support Means Lessening Rigor
Myth #5: Resources Do Not Equal Rigor"

Rigor is a subjective quality:  it depends on a student’s knowledge and experiences.  Since different students will have different experiences with a particular question, this poses an obvious challenge for test-makers if the goal is to design questions that produce rigorous responses.  For example, the trapezoid problem discussed in Part 1 would produce a rigorous response for one kind of student but not for another.

Key Point from Grant Wiggins:


"A test is not intended to be an authentic assessment; it is a proxy for authentic assessment."
