RECENT PAST, CURRENT SCENEEisner (pgs. 200, 201)

  • During the 1960s a broader concept of “educational evaluation” was stimulated through numerous many curriculum reform movements.
  • At the time, efforts to reform educational evaluation lost its momentum due to significant pressure from the American public and other interests outside education.
  • Negative feedback from military, private sector employers, and increasingly low SAT scores, created concern with the state of American schools, student ability and questionable quality of teaching.
  • As a remedy, government policy makers and the American public established MININMUM STANDARTS for all school districts and their schools to achieve.
  • Tougher (SAT) Specific Achievement Tests were designed to bring about improvements, to monitor and measure and to provide informed reports of change in student learning & ability within schools and school districts.

RECENT PAST, CURRENT SCENEEisner (pgs. 200, 201)

  • From this emerged the operative term “ACCOUNTABILITY” on the part of the school system, districts and schools.
  • For nearly two decades Achievement TESTS remained the predominant method to determine, compare and communicate the progress / improvement of schools, students and teaching to the public and private sectors.
  • Communication was maintained with military, private sector employers and public to determine the extent of progress achieved as a result of the newly mandated educational changes.
  • Mid 1980’s, the demand for better qualified students softened, while groups of educational stake holders realized tougher SAT tests and mandated assessment practices was not the answer to the problem of unprepared students and poor school results.
  • Most “reformers” felt real problem was quality of school programming and poor pedagogical practice.
  • The “concerned groups” suggested reporting practices should be more generous, more complex and more aligned with life experiences over individual performance tests. Thus, the new term “ASSESSMENT” symbolized the ambitions of the next decade.

Ok enough of the chubby guy lets hear from Sue again . . .

According to the HRSB policy, “Student Assessment and Evaluation Policy and Procedures”,

  • The #1 reason to assess is to determine how we are doing as a system, school, and classroom in order to improve student learning. That is to build on strengths and focus resources where needed to improve student achievement.
  • Teachers will use this information to guide decision-making, student learning, and teaching practices. i.e Is the student meeting the outcomes? Provides descriptive feedback to inform students and parents about learning and to make decisions about what is next for the learner.

Eisner sees assessment as a tool to look at: The Program The Teacher The Student

It is mainly used as for accountability purposes. (Identification)LITTLE TO NO Reference about using the information for student development.

HRSB model – appears to use non-judgemental language and the theory behind the policy sounds ideal and has positive implications for the role of assessment

  • Ron, Sonja, Nancie, Debra (HS), and Jennifer
  • Mark, Pat, Roy, and Debbie (ES)
  • John, Adrian, Carolyn, and Stephanie

BEFORE discussing the invigorating details of FONA, please lend us your minds for another brief yet stimulating activity of ‘cooperative cognitive calisthenics’.

we now require, 8 non-competitive teams, if that is possible? No 3 buddy teams (i.e., John, Mark, Ron). We would also ask our esteemed professor Simpson to participate in this activity.

Due to time constraints, we have allotted but a moment in time for this activity, so please begin - upon reading the next slide.

Featuresof theNew Assessment

Eisner (pgs. 205 – 203)

Assessment tasks need not be limited to solo performances. Many of the most important tasks we undertake require group efforts. (pg. 205)

Assessment tasks should reflect the values of the intellectual community from which the tasks are derived. (pg. 204)

The tasks used to assessment students should reveal how students go about solving a problem, not only the solutions they have formulated. (pg. 204)

The tasks used to assess what students know and can do need to reflect the tasks they will encounter in the world outside of schools. not merely those limited to the schools themselves. (pg 203)

Some have suggested that throughout the process of educational inquiry observation and interpretation without application is a form of abortion.. Wasn’t Me
