ollie4_1: Article: Attributes from Effective Formative Assessment (CCSSO) - 1 views

  • formative assessment be regarded as a process rather than a particular kind of assessment.
    • keri bass
      I like that it repeats the importance of the process here. I noticed that in the official definition it does not mention a means of ranking students, but rather a process intended to improve student achievement. I think too much emphasis gets place on the grade by both students and the teacher and not enough emphasis on the learning.
  • A further benefit of providing feedback to a peer is that it can help deepen the student’s own learning. However, student- and peer-assessment should not be used in the formal grading process.
    • keri bass
      While I believe that teaching the subject encourages deeper understanding, the counselor me is more cautious about the potential harm in pairing the wrong students. I think it would be imperative to choose the right partners to insure optimal learning.

ollie4_1: Educational Leadership: The Quest for Quality - 1 views

  • Although it may seem as though having more assessments will mean we are more accurately estimating student achievement, the use of multiple measures does not, by itself, translate into high-quality evidence.
    • keri bass
      This statement couldn't be more true. I think that people assume that all assessments are created equal and that just because you have gathered data means that the data is relevant and measuring what you want in to measure. This is not always the case, but people get distracted by numbers and forget that even though it is a number, it is still open for interpretation and analysis.
  • Bias can also creep into assessments and erode accurate results. Examples of bias include poorly printed test forms, noise distractions, vague directions, and cultural insensitivity.
    • keri bass
      I think the hardest thing about testing bias is realizing it is a problem. Typically it creeps in when you aren't aware. Bias will often enter a question out of ignorance rather than intention.

ollie1: Iowa Online Teaching Standards - 1 views

  • Tailors instruction to meet the different needs of students
    • keri bass
      With growing class sizes and diversity, it's important to get to know the students and how they learn, in order to meet their individual educational needs. One size does not fit all.
  • techniques to engage students
    • keri bass
      Educators must always be on the lookout for ways to keep students hooked. Disenfranchised student don't make good learners.
