From Too Little To Too Much: Sorting Through The Online Resource Environment In Education, Nathalie Carrier, Jacqueline Sohn, Limin Jao, Saira Shah 2014 Walden University

From Too Little To Too Much: Sorting Through The Online Resource Environment In Education, Nathalie Carrier, Jacqueline Sohn, Limin Jao, Saira Shah

Journal of Educational Research and Practice

The Internet is considered to be one of the most important mechanisms for sharing research (Chavkin & Chavkin, 2008), raising questions about the scope and variety of research-based education resources available online. Whereas years ago, the challenge for educators was to find relevant research information for practice, this challenge has shifted to one of sorting through the “infoglut” (Edmunds & Morris, 2000), or the abundance of information claiming to be grounded in research, and being able to judge which resources are most valuable and reliable. Drawing on scholarship that seeks to mobilize evidence between researchers, practitioners, and policymakers (Levin, 2011), this study ...


Assessing Public Relations Student Learning And Performance In Real World Client Campaigns And Projects, Douglas J. Swanson Ed.D APR 2014 SelectedWorks

Assessing Public Relations Student Learning And Performance In Real World Client Campaigns And Projects, Douglas J. Swanson Ed.D Apr

Douglas J. Swanson, Ed.D APR

Extensive research affirms the benefits of engaging public relations undergraduates in campaigns and projects for real world clients. At the same time, instructors often have difficulty evaluating student learning and performance in such work, for three reasons: (1.) In order for the work to truly be real world, instructors must allow students a high level of autonomy. (2.) Clients are often poor judges of appropriate public relations practice. (3.) Students often hesitate to inform instructors of strategic challenges or team member negligence or malfeasance. This poster session presents a brief overview of assessment concepts affirming why it is important to ...

The College Is Our Classroom: Campus Assessment Leaders Share Their Most Effective (And Favorite) Faculty Development Programs, Caroline A. Critchlow, Jane M. Souza, Lori A. Hollenbeck, Cathy S. Sweet 2014 St. John Fisher College

The College Is Our Classroom: Campus Assessment Leaders Share Their Most Effective (And Favorite) Faculty Development Programs, Caroline A. Critchlow, Jane M. Souza, Lori A. Hollenbeck, Cathy S. Sweet

Educational Effectiveness Assessment Faculty/Staff Publications

The goal of assessment is to inform instructional strategies in order to improve student learning. This is as true when you are developing “lessons” for faculty as it is when faculty are designing lessons for their students. By approaching the college campus as a classroom, program-level assessments can indicate areas that might benefit from instructional support.

In this presentation, four assessment leaders, representing both professional schools and general education, share their most effective faculty development programs and how they were created to respond to assessment results. Participants will receive the notes and materials from these faculty development programs.

Determining The Quality Of Assessment Items In Collaborations: Aspects To Discuss To Reach Agreement Developed By The Australian Medical Assessment Collaboration, Lambert Schuwirth, Jacob Pearce 2014 Australian Council for Educational Research

Determining The Quality Of Assessment Items In Collaborations: Aspects To Discuss To Reach Agreement Developed By The Australian Medical Assessment Collaboration, Lambert Schuwirth, Jacob Pearce

Higher Education Research

The Australian Medical Assessment Collaboration (AMAC) project, funded by the Office of Learning and Teaching, seeks to provide an infrastructure and a road map to support collaboration between Australian medical schools in matters of assessment. This may not seem very new perhaps, because there are already several collaborations taking place in Australia, and, typically, they relate to joint item banks, (such as the IDEAL consortium), or joint test administration, (such as the International Foundation of Medicine tests). The AMAC project seeks to build on these existing collaborations in two ways: first, by tying these initiatives together and thus bundling the ...

The discussion here draws heavily on the AMAC experience, attempting to broaden the learning from this project for use in future collaborations. The focus of this project has been on medical education, and as such, much of the detail is related to this field. However, it is hoped that the general ideas discussed here can be seen as informative for other fields and disciplines in higher education and at ...


Redesigning The Secondary–Tertiary Interface: Queensland Review Of Senior Assessment And Tertiary Entrance Volume 1: Main Report, Gabrielle Matters, Geoff N. Masters 2014 Australian Council for Educational Research

Redesigning The Secondary–Tertiary Interface: Queensland Review Of Senior Assessment And Tertiary Entrance Volume 1: Main Report, Gabrielle Matters, Geoff N. Masters

Queensland Review of Senior Assessment and Tertiary Entrance

A general conclusion of this Review is that senior secondary assessment and tertiary entrance in Queensland are in need of attention. It is more than twenty years since the current OP system was designed, and the broad features of the senior assessment system have been in place even longer. Over the past two decades, assessment and tertiary entrance processes have been the subject of ongoing modifications. Although the current processes have served Queensland well, we believe that they will be less adequate in meeting future needs and that the time has come for a redesign. Any redesign must recognise and ...

Thinking It Through: Australian Students’ Skills In Creative Problem Solving, Lisa De Bortoli, Greg Macaskill

OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA Australia)

In every PISA survey, students from every participating country are assessed in the core domains of mathematics, science and reading literacy. In addition to assessing these literacy domains, the OECD proposes additional assessments in other domains. In PISA 2003, a paper-based assessment of cross- disciplinary problem solving was first assessed, when it was included as a core domain. In PISA 2012, problem solving was once again assessed, this time as an optional computer-based assessment.

The focus of the PISA 2012 assessment of problem solving was: Are today’s 15-year-old students acquiring the problem-solving skills that will prepare them to meet ...
