Assessing Student Learning - do it like assessing someone in their job

Assessing Student Learning - do it like assessing someone in their job | PLE for Educators |

"These days it seems lots of "Education Reformers" and politicians what to assess students (and teachers) through more and more standardized tests. But that's not how we assess someone at their job. People are assessed in their jobs in their performance on the tasks for their job. We should do the same for students. We need to assess their ability to complete tasks and apply what they have learned to more than some multiple choice, standardized, made by some big corporation test."

Personalization vs Differentiation vs Individualization

Personalization vs Differentiation vs Individualization | PLE for Educators |

Here's a chart that explains the differences between personalization, differentiation, and individualization. After some research on these terms, Barbara Bray and I were able to determine the differences between these terms in relationship to teaching and learning.

Thank you for your comment. Kathleen and I are looking for feedback on how educators are using this chart.

I am in Wisconsin and we are part of CESA 1 NxGL. I team teach with 42 kindergarten kids and we are using personalized learning. We are working through the tangles of being able to personalize with kids who are just learning to read, write and compute. It has always been a struggle to be able to differentiate the difference between true personalized learning vs. differentiation and individualization. You have done a beautiful job of creating a chart that makes this clearer for all stakeholders. This chart will be useful for helping colleagues, administration and parents see the true definition of personalized learning and the potential that it holds.

Hello rwteam in WI,

Thank you for your comments on this chart that Barbara and I created. We would be glad to have you share this with your colleagues in WI and elsewhere. We commend you and your teams in CESA 1 NxGL on the hard work that you are doing to make personalized learning a realty for your students.
