Why Study the Learning Process If the Data Isn't Used?

Why Study the Learning Process If the Data Isn't Used? | The future of higher learning | Scoop.it

One would think the world of education -- including educators, decision makers and government education policy generators -- would base decisions on grounded research. After all, these are folks who have managed to make their way to a higher order of thinking and graduated with a degree from our educational institutions. Why then is there such a gap between what we know (through research) and what we do (practice/make decisions)?

Frequent, Low-Stakes Grading: Assessment for Communication, Confidence | Faculty Focus

Frequent, Low-Stakes Grading: Assessment for Communication, Confidence | Faculty Focus | The future of higher learning | Scoop.it

It may surprise us to think of it like this, but today’s students grew up in a culture of routine assessment and feedback. Yet when they click (or walk) into our courses, the experience is often quite different: there are few high-stakes grades, big exams, or one-shot term papers. Despite critiques of high-stakes testing – Wideen et al. (1997) said such “examinations discouraged teachers from using strategies which promoted enquiry and active student learning […] this impoverishment affected the language of classroom discourse”—teachers often still see “assessment as an index of school success rather than as the cause of that success” (Chappuis and Stiggins, 2002).
