Assessment is not a spreadsheet, it’s a conversation. 

Assessment is not a spreadsheet, it’s a conversation.  | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Joe Bower: "Assessment has been bastardized into meaning measurement. It’s not the same thing. Assessment is not measurement. I assess my students every single day, but it’s not in what is maybe the conventional sense. Assessment is not a spreadsheet, it’s a conversation.” ...

Assessment, but not as we know it... #EduTechAU

Assessment, but not as we know it... #EduTechAU | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Assessment today is simply to give grades, for students don't study to learn, they study to earn their grade. What is in a number? How can something as complex as learning be reduced to a single figure? Why doesn't assessment provide more to the learner than a grade? Because it was established at a time when knowledge was the main currency for education, and where employers demanded knowledgeable workers. That has chaned now.

Debunking Homework Myths

Debunking Homework Myths | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

It's an obvious myth that students think homework is for their benefit. With that attitude, a student may think, "It doesn't matter how I get the homework done, just as long as it is done before the teacher checks it. Right?" This is why on the day the homework is due a group of students can typically be seen frantically huddled over the "smart girl" copying her answers. ...

5 Assessment Forms That Promote Content Retention

5 Assessment Forms That Promote Content Retention | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

If we hope to construct enduring understanding in our students, it's critical that, now more than ever, we know their strengths and interests. By incorporating students' strengths and weakness into authentic learning experiences from the beginning of each unit, while at the same time including opportunities for feedback, metacognition and revision, we promote a variety of cognitive and emotional benefits that can lead to academic success.

It’s Time to Reform Learning Measurement

It’s Time to Reform Learning Measurement | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Our lives are increasingly data rich. The demands for educational measurement continue to grow—from the epics of students’ high-stakes testing, the politics of teacher measurement (and pay), higher education’s quest towards competency-based education, and professional learning’s venturing into the world of micro-credentials and new-age certificates. Our current measurement tools are at best mediocre for the learner, and downright abysmal for hiring managers. Given the accelerating change in the way people learn, the world is ripe for a stronger way to signal learning and skills aptitude. ...

Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric

Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

How can teachers prove that deep, rich learning is occurring through making? How do we justify a grade to students and parents alike, especially to the student who "just isn’t good at art"?

Why Formative Assessments Matter

Why Formative Assessments Matter | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Formative assessments are simply little gauges or indicators of how students are progressing towards a learning goal. It could be anything from a simple conversation to something like a clickers or response via a website. It is the formative assessments throughout learning that give us the indication we are headed down the right path with our learning or whether we should take a right turn to get back on track. The use of the formative assessments help teachers understand where their students are and, more importantly, where their teaching is.
