States will soon be free to transform standardized testing, but most won’t - The Hechinger Report | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
Trendy styles tend to flare and fade, only to reappear decades later, back in vogue with a new generation. Education innovation can follow a similar pattern. In the early 1990s, Kentucky districts were among those grading student portfolios and assessing performance tasks, instead of standardized tests, and they found themselves on the cutting edge of …

The Importance of your Digital Reputation

The Importance of your Digital Reputation | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
We live in a society where online searches tend to influence – if not drive – many of our decisions. If we are looking for a good doctor in the area, a potential vacation spot, or advice on what electronics to purchase this holiday season, we will perform searches using our phone, tablet, or computer. It is so easy and has become almost second-nature. That said, we don’t just look up inanimate objects and places – we look up individuals all the time.

Blended and Hybrid Environments are Driving the New Global Movement in Education

Blended and Hybrid Environments are Driving the New Global Movement in Education | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
Today’s global employers are searching for employees that have specific skills. Those skills may not be the same needed in 10 years though. In 2009, the US Department of Labor estimated 65% of today’s school children would eventually be employed in jobs that have yet to be created. The number is far higher today. The influx of technology is what has changed the shape of education forever. For this reason, schools must create opportunities for students to engage in higher level thinking skills and experience 21st century skills while using technology.

Assessing Student Project Work | #ModernEDU #Rubrics 

Assessing Student Project Work | #ModernEDU #Rubrics  | Teach-ologies | Scoop.it
Project work challenges students to think beyond the boundaries of the classroom, helping them develop the skills, behaviors, and confidence necessary for success in the 21st-century. Designing learning environments that help students question, analyze, evaluate, and extrapolate their plans, conclusions, and ideas, leading them to higher–order thinking, requires feedback and evaluation that goes beyond a letter or number grade. The term “authentic assessment” is used to describe assessment that evaluates content knowledge as well as additional skills like creativity, collaboration, problem-solving, and innovation.

Authentic assessment documents the learning that occurs during the project-building process and considers the real-world skills of collaboration, problem solving, decision making, and communication. Since project work requires students to apply knowledge and skills throughout the project-building process, you will have many opportunities to assess work quality, understanding, and participation from the moment students begin working.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 21, 2:10 PM
Rubrics, when well thought-out and well-used, are great tools. The key is to sit with your curricula each time you assign a project and review the outcomes. Second, take time and discuss the rubric with students. What is expected? What do they understand and not? How can they use the rubric to guide their learning? Third, take time to talk and listen as they use the rubrics. A rubric is a conversation.

Projects are widely used with EFL/ESL students because they can incorporate various levels and skills.  Assessing them can be tricky, but it doesn't have to.  There are various parts of assessment, including a link to making your own rubrics, in this article.
