The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer | ICT and Assessment | Scoop.it

"The difference between assessment of learning and assessment for learning is a crucial one, in many ways indicative of an important shift in education.

Traditionally, tests have told teachers and parents how a student “does,” then offers a very accessible point of data (usually percentage correct and subsequent letter grade) that is reported to parents as a performance indicator."

"Assessment for learning" versus "assessment of learning" is also promoted as a key component of the learning portfolio all colleges of pharmacy need to have to demonstrate student achievement.

I have practiced a system that covers four of the 5 key strategies for many years starting at five years of age.  I would not teach any other way. With this kind of assessment students after seven years of age can lead parent teacher conferences with ease and confidence. Had a dad in tears once who confessed it was the first time his son had talked meaningfully to him about his learning. Then I was in tears too....

A good little diagram but it does not address the issue of how to do it..it requires modelling, first by the teacher, then slowly devolving the responsibility to the learner, and focus on one subject area at a time e.g. Literacy . In my experience it also requires set aside time with each student to assess together, recording what has been discussed so it is not forgotten. I am talking about elementary learners here..

"Worthy assessments should reflect the broader capabilities that students need to thrive in the 21st century."

I love this article, it has a very strong message and opens up the importance of not just "soft skills" but those hard to teach ones, creativity, innovation and in my discipine entrepreneurship.

One cannot think without content to think with and about. No doubt that students need foundational skills in order to actually use critically thinking and problem solving skills. But when in their life will they need to remember the facts from the textbook? How will they use what they memorized directly from a book? In education today, the focus is on quality control- making the grade, having top scores. The focus has shift away from teaching students those lifelong learning skills that they really need like creativity, common sense, how to win or lose, work ethic, etc. At the end of the day, our assessments of students need to match what they will be expected to do and perform in the real world. No perfect score will teach students how to be a good worker or how to follow their dreams without defeat.
