Hattie's point about feedback is important as it underscores the importance of teaching and the relational nature that exists between teaching and learning. Feedback takes into consideration the context and people involved.

Great summary on the research pointing to the power of a shift to more formative assessment
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 6, 11:46 AM

There has been a conversation about assessment for decades. It is not a recent phenomenon and dates back to Dewey. The challenge with School reform is that each new group thinks they are starting the conversation fresh.

Tim Hands, the master of Magdalen College School, added: “It's too easy for adults paid to reward accuracy to forget the heartache they inflict on young people by inaccuracy unnecessarily and annually delivered. That applies to all young people, whatever their background, and whatever their schooling.”

The students who feel they have the right to cheat

The students who feel they have the right to cheat | Rubrics, Assessment and eProctoring in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Students are often keen to exercise their rights but recently there has been an interesting twist - some in India are talking about their right to cheat in university exams.

"It is our democratic right!" a thin, addled-looking man named Pratap Singh once said to me as he stood, chai in hand, outside his university in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh. "Cheating is our birthright."

Corruption in the university exam system is common in this part of India. The rich can bribe their way to examination success. There's even a whole subset of the youth population who are brokers between desperate students and avaricious administrators.

Disrupt Your Grading Rut: Alternative Assessment Methods for the Online Classroom

Disrupt Your Grading Rut: Alternative Assessment Methods for the Online Classroom | Rubrics, Assessment and eProctoring in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Authentic, learner-centered, collaborative assessment alternatives
Alternative assessment methods such as writing assignments, collaborative assignments, case studies, and debates can avoid the problems often associated with tests and quizzes. “There are many ways to approach assessment. It depends on the context of the course. When we teach faculty how to teach online, we try to give them a taste of a majority of those methods. I don’t know that we can cover all of them in one course, but there are multiple ways to get at the issues and make this a real-life situation for the students so they can actually learn from the process,” Pratt says.
Palloff and Pratt recommend selecting assessment methods that are learner-centered and authentic.

Steve Vaitl's curator insight, October 17, 12:58 PM

For my Teaching friends. Great information about assessments focusing on more than simple memorizing information. With today's "age of information", open book testing can be used, when designed appropriately, to actually teach as well as assess.

Sue Walsh's curator insight, October 17, 7:13 PM

it is a real challege to stretch thinking to real-life assessment approaches and take everyone on the journey. the focus on learner centred and authentic is great, and dare I mention the many of these approaches lend to assessment only pathways ... but thats a whole other challenge!

When we use the word becoming, is it just becoming a lawyer, doctor, teacher, etc? It is also about becoming a person and forming character. That is difficult to assess. This article raises some good questions and challenges traditional ways of thinking without simply discarding them en masse.
