    Varsity Tutors Debuts Free Test Question Site

    By Dian Schaffhauser
    11/07/13

    Varsity Tutors, a providor of private tutoring to students online, has launched a new, free service with the intention of becoming the "Khan Academy" of practice tests. The company has introduced a Web-based assessment system intended to replace other forms of educational content such as SAT or ACT preparation books or online subscriptions to assessment materials.

    Varsity Learning Tools, as it's called, makes hundreds of free practice tests available in 95 subjects. Currently in open beta testing, the site lists assessment tests by subject and allows the user to choose to answer a single test, flashcards, or a question of the day.

    Each question can be shared through social network services. When the student answers it, a second page displays with an assessment and explanation and data on how much time was spent on the question, and how many others answered it correctly."

Create questions, quizzes and polls with optional uploaded images for participants to complete in real time from a computer or mobile device. The users access the quiz by using a pin code.

Using iPad Screencasting for Feedback and Assessment - iPads in Education - 111 views

    "If however we assume that interactivity and communication are important objectives of the modern classroom, then there's one feature however that's particularly interesting. Explain Everything links to a wide variety of cloud storage services thereby enabling screencasts to be uploaded and exchanged between students and teacher. For example, a student can create a screencast and the teacher can respond verbally within the same screencast while highlighting and marking it up for clarification"

Basic item analysis for multiple-choice tests. Kehoe, Jerard - 1 views

    Basic Item Analysis for Multiple-Choice Tests.
    Jerard Kehoe,
    Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University


    This article offers some suggestions for the improvement of multiple-choice tests using "item analysis" statistics. These statistics are typically provided by a measurement services, where tests are machine-scored, as well as by testing software packages.

    The basic idea that we can capitalize on is that the statistical behavior of "bad" items is fundamentally different from that of "good" items. Of course, the items have to be administered to students in order to obtain the needed statistics. This fact underscores our point of view that tests can be improved by maintaining and developing a pool of "good" items from which future tests will be drawn in part or in whole. This is particularly true for instructors who teach the same course more than once.

The Best 1:1 Device is a Good Teacher | Edutopia - 56 views

  •  
    "Over the course of two years, I, along with the Burlington Public Schools tech team, had the opportunity to meet and connect with over one hundred schools. These discussions would usually involve what device works best in the classroom and how the iPad is affecting teaching and learning outcomes. Frequently this conversation focuses on the most effective hardware for teaching and learning. While this is an important decision to make, it should not be the focus. In fact, the best devices a school can employ are great teachers."
