About 100 U.S. high schools will soon find out how their students measure up compared with their peers across the globe.

The schools are taking part in a new pilot program to test the knowledge and skills of 15-year-olds in reading, math, and science on an exam based on PISA, the high-profile international assessment, as I explain in a new EdWeek story.

Each participating school will get a report with a variety of information about its performance, plus comparative tables to put student achievement in context. Organizers and participants say the pilot offers a chance for individual schools to compare their achievement levels globally on an assessment intended to measure higher-order thinking skills. They also emphasize that the pilot is intended to help schools take away valuable lessons to improve instruction.

Abstract

The new European university context requires a methodological and evaluative shift towards active didactic, socio-constructive and investigative perspectives that are student-centred. This study describes the learning setting, the results and the conclusions of an innovative practical exercise carried out by first-year students on two different degree courses at an Andalusian university, using e-portfolios set up for group work and implemented through an edublog. The study's main aim is to establish the most significant achievements, problems and evidence that emerge from this didactic group project. The project includes the design and implementation of a multimedia educational material (MEM), and involves the students in didactic planning and self-assessment processes. The conclusions show that the e-portfolio is a didactic method that fully integrates teaching, learning and assessment into a continuum by allowing students to work together didactically on such aspects. This methodological alternative also greatly helps the lecturer in his/her understanding of the students' learning processes, the working methods of his/her classes, the problems associated with team working, the information sources that students use, and the tutoring and learning-assessment processes. Lastly, the e-portfolio enables the future social educators' levels of didactic comprehension and professional-competency acquisition to be gauged.

An Eye-Opening Story

There’s a story about a manager who bumped into one of her former employees in the grocery store. The former employee gave her the cold shoulder.

 

“What’s the matter, Phyllis? We used to get along so well when you worked for me!” the manager asked quite puzzled.

 

“Well, to be quite frank, I was only nice because I worked for you.

 

I’ve never liked you.

 

You’re a conceited, power-hungry, hypocrite who never listens to what anyone else has to say! And now that I don’t work for you anymore, I don’t haveto be nice!” the former employee exclaimed as she stormed off.
