Evolution of evidence based practices ebr
Evolution of Evidence-Based Practices (EBR) SRBI

  • Current legislation and policy within education emphasize commitment to, anddissemination of, evidence-based (or research-validated) practices (Shavelson & Towne, 2002). Appropriate concern exists that investment in practices that lack adequate empirical support may drain limited educational resources and, in some cases, may result in the use of practices that are not in the best interest of children (Beutler, 1998; Nelson, Roberts, Mathurs, & Rutherford, 1999; Whitehurst, 2003). To support the investment in evidence-based practices, it is appropriate for any research method to define objective criteria that local, state or federal decision-makers may use to determine if a practice is “evidence-based” (Chambless & Hollon, 1998; Chambless & Ollendick, 2001; Odom & Strain, 2003; Shernoff, Kratochwill & Stoiber, 2002).

Biggest Concern: Major Functions of Assessment SRBI

  • How is IHE Addressing…

    • Assessment OF learning

      • Provides summary information about student status in relation to learning goals or standards at a point in time

    • Assessment FOR learning

      • Promote increases in achievement

    • High quality system of assessment achieves a balance of both

Effective assessment

D. SRBI Use of results to guide

Instruction, to help

students enhance their own

learning, to develop curriculum and programs

A. Clearly understood and articulated learning goals (e.g., performance standards,general learner outcomes, unit/project lesson goals, individual student goals)

B. Assessment strategies that are appropriate to and aligned

with learning goals and C. that are constructive and actively engage students
