Standardized Achievement Tests: What Are They Good For?

Standardized Achievement Tests: What Are They Good For? | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
A new study makes it clear what growth in standardized test performance doesn’t buy us: cognitive ability.

Via Beth Dichter
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

 I am concerned about the massive growth of standardized test as a tool to motivate learning and improvement in education. These also even seem to be an intimidation tool used against staff and school systems these days far more than an formative evaluation tool. The best evaluations for both formative and summative are by far real life performance based and the real process is always iterative and ongoing. That is everything in learning is iterative with exception of life and death training that must be passed by a 100% success standard and then maintained at that.

 

Are standardized test a distraction from the sometimes messy nature of real learning and curiosity which causes people to want to learn something? Are we taking the valuable lessons of trial and error corrections totally out of the learning equation for fear of failure when everything hangs on a standardized test passing score?

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 17, 6:53 PM

Today we have students taking more and more standardized tests. This post shares information on "standardized test scores (Math and English language arts) and cognitive ability (working memory, processing speed, and abstract reasoning)" from ~1400 students 8th grade students in Boston (schools include traditional, exam and charter). 

The question I would ask is why are we focused on standardized tests? Is this the primary way we should assess our students? Do standardized tests become critical thinkers, creative thinkers? This list could go on.

The information in this post may surprise you and there are links to the original paper and supplement.

Sound advice here on how to build critical thinking skills into the curriculum from an early age to support the growth of the next generation of digital social scientists & citizen researchers. This is great but still leaves us with a problem about how to equip established social researchers with an understanding of the potential & challenges in social media research, especially those who serve on IRBs granting access and clearance via ethics panels to new research projects.

Excerpt:

Why (Digital) Storytelling?Storytelling is the expression of common cultural artefacts shared by individuals & societies with roots extending to the emergence of prehistoric humans.Stories help us make sense of ourselves, our cultures and societies, in rich and meaningful ways.Storytelling may give voice to individuals and groups who have been oppressed by a culture of literary dominance.Stories will help us leave a rich legacy of expression for future generations.Storytelling helps us reclaim our narratives from corporate and commercial interests.Stories and the process of storytelling can be used as a rich means of assessment.Storytelling proves to be an engaging alternative for many learners.

Simple Ways to Cultivate Happiness in Schools

Simple Ways to Cultivate Happiness in Schools | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
In my last post I suggested that equitable schools are those that contribute to happiness in children.

Via Mary Perfitt-Nelson, David Mackzum, Ed.D.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Where are these ideas in common core general standards? Do the common core standards address success as demonstrating  student, individual or even overall group happiness? Should happiness matter in a post-modern world?

 

This article tells schools, teachers and students to slow down, sing, move, get outside. Do these things really have a place in a school day for the entire school body? These ideas are rather old fashion and low tech. 

 

In these times many students, teachers and even families really have a hard  and often uncomfortable feeling about going outdoors, walking, moving, or simply remaining quiet. More people turn on music and sit and watch sports rather than actually engage physically in these movement activities. Children are discouraged from being outside unless they have a guardian with them. Parents and teachers are afraid to let them out unless they are guarded and who wants to do that on either side for long? So it's easier and allows more freedom to keep them inside and to calm them down allowing them to do something that requires more sitting and often watching others move or doing something through media gadgets…

 

Could doing the things listed here cause people to learn more and work better? How would we fit these into a day or even a week? Do people need to be happy to be successful or does becoming successful make them happy? And what about those that really don't become successful when success is defined by wealth, great jobs, power, possessions and good health? 

 

Excerpt:

Furthermore, when the weather is comfortable, why can't we have some of the many meetings we all have to sit in outside? Last year I took my instructional coaches to the forest for one of our professional development days. In addition to hiking, we read, talked, learned, and wrote -- all of the activities we usually do in our office.

Brick and mortar institutions cost a fortune, and most have to work while going to school. But for those who can't juggle both, online learning can be a great option.

A look at what hapened at Plymouth South High School last year when one class "attempted to transform the traditional research process to a completely paperless one using a fresh cart of iPads."

A number of goals were "outlined prior to the research process" and included (quoting from the post):

* Students will crowd-source their research to a collective research group.

* Students will incorporate varied media types into their research: web based text, traditional text, audio and video.

* Students will work collaboratively with their teacher and classmates on their research and writing process.

* Students will become proficient researching and writing in a digital environment.

What should the goals of gifted education be?

Perhaps the goals of all education forall children...

“Rather than portray the needs of gifted students as being unique, we suggest weaving them into the general education tapestry. To accomplish this, we would revise the chief goal of gifted education to be the chief goal of all education: to ensure that all students receive the education appropriate for them at any given time by maximizing the match between individual students’ educational experiences with their individual educational needs.”

Excerpt:

“The fillip for us is twofold,” McCutcheon explains, “As an Educate Together school, we teach the children an ethical curriculum. We want the children to become more sophisticated in the way they think about moral issues but we don’t want to appeal to any particular domination because we are a non-denominational school."

 

“The other appeal is under the citizenship remit and developing the ‘children’s voice’. You can set up student councils, and so on, but what’s most important is ensuring the teachers’ moral pedagogy over the course of the day is one that promotes children’s voice.”

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 4, 2013 8:10 PM

Today our schools are "obsessed with measurement." We take many hours of each school year testing our students. This post questions the value of this "obsession" noting that "children have become pawns in contests that pit parent against parent, teacher against teacher, school against school, and nation against nation in the struggle to see who can squeeze the highest test scores out of their kids."

It explores the questions "What is education? What is its purpose" and "Is it quantifiable?" by looking at the roots of education and how education has changed. If you want some food for thought on these issues this is a great post to read.

A Look at Poverty’s Evil Twin | Taking Note

A Look at Poverty’s Evil Twin | Taking Note | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Today the U.S. is polarized, yet this post by John Merrow states "I have found something that unites Republicans and Democrats: neither party talks about poverty, despite our current epidemic of child poverty and its consequences for the life chances of millions of children."

Merrow continues to discuss poverty, and what he describes as its "evil twin, greed" stating that "we cannot solve on in isolation."

He provides a number of statistics from the National Center for Children in Poverty, including:

* 31% of white children - 12.1 million - live in low-income families.

* 64% of black children - 6.5 million - live in low-income families.

* 31% of Asian children - 1.0 million - live in low-income families.

* 63% of Hispanic children - 10.7 million - live in low-income families.

When you add in American Indian and children of other races, 30 million children live in poverty.

For more information on this and to learn more about "deep poverty" and "normal poverty" as well as a look at salary differentials between the typical CEO and the typical worker click through to the article. Merrow suggest that "if we backed away from greed, we would be more open to recognize the scourge of poverty and the long term threat it poses to our nation."
