Teacher And Student Perspectives On Collaborative Learning, Ray Peck, M Barnes Nov 1999

Teacher And Student Perspectives On Collaborative Learning, Ray Peck, M Barnes

Ray Peck

In this article, the authors explain what they mean by collaborative learning and suggest ways of promoting effective collaboration in senior mathematics. Issues discussed include group composition, the design of suitable tasks for collaborative work, setting norms for student behaviour and the teacher's role in promoting effective discussion. Students' views on collaborative learning are also presented. Perceived advantages include improved understanding, enjoyment and communication skills. Some perceived disadvantages and ways of minimising them are also discussed.

Broadening Assessment, Improving Fairness? Some Examples From School Science, Jan Lokan, Ray Adams, Brian Doig Feb 1999

Broadening Assessment, Improving Fairness? Some Examples From School Science, Jan Lokan, Ray Adams, Brian Doig

Prof Ray Adams

Following a review of equity issues in testing, especially in relation to science, two assessment programmes in school science, each of which was designed both to probe a range of aspects of student performance and for use in a large-scale study, are discussed. Both have been developed and used in the 1990s, one is Australia only and the other in many countries. The programmes and the range of aspects they attempt to assess are described and results are cited for several groups of students. Issues of fairness through broadening of large-scale assessments to include tasks requiring students to construct their ...

The Convergent Validity Of Reading Assessments At The Secondary Level (Thesis), Kelly Cross Dec 1998

The Convergent Validity Of Reading Assessments At The Secondary Level (Thesis), Kelly Cross

Kelly L. Cross

This study compares the results of four secondary level reading assessments in order to determine their convergent validity. Convergent validity is the process or result of finding that two or more indicators thought to assess the same variable correlate with each other (Harris & Hodges, 1995). During my examination of reading assessments, I found that four types: standardized reading tests, informal reading inventories, cloze technique reading assessments, and oral reading accuracy analysis from authentic materials. This study compares the results of these different types of reading assessments, rather than evaluating which "brand" of the same type of reading assessment is more accurate. For practical purposes, I examined reading assessments that are currently being used in a local public school district. The four reading assessments I compared are the Burns-Roe Informal Reading Inventory (Burns & Roe, 1993); the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (Hieronymus, Hoover, & Lindquist, 1995), a standardized reading test; the Degrees of Reading Power (Koslin, Koslin, Zeno, & Ivens, 1989), a cloze technique reading assessment; and a Tradebook Reading Inventory (TBRI), an informal tradebook reading inventory (see Appendix A), which includes an oral reading accuracy and comprehension analysis. The TBRI is similar to an informal reading inventory, but uses longer passages from textbook materials used in ...


Street Children In Film, Irving Epstein Dec 1998

Street Children In Film, Irving Epstein

Irving Epstein

In examining the depiction of street children in three classic films: Kids, Pixote, and Salaam Bombay, I argue that the respective directors play upon our protean concepts of “the street” and “the child” in order to offer social criticism of three types of states: the consumerist state, the authoritarian state, and the neocolonialist state. In each film, street life is used as a metaphor for the way in which the state expresses its authority. In spite of their differences, the directors’ share gendered views of children and childhood innocence, and see the street as offering its inhabitants the opportunities for ...


Comparison Of Gastric Emptying Times In Healthy Cats Simultaneously Evaluated With Radiopaque Markers And Nuclear Scintigraphy, J Goggin, J Hoskinson, Claudia Kirk, D Jewell, M Butine Dec 1998

Comparison Of Gastric Emptying Times In Healthy Cats Simultaneously Evaluated With Radiopaque Markers And Nuclear Scintigraphy, J Goggin, J Hoskinson, Claudia Kirk, D Jewell, M Butine

Claudia A Kirk

Gastric emptying in 18 healthy cats was assessed simultaneously using scintigraphy and barium-impregnated polyethylene spheres (BIPS). Canned Prescription Diet Feline c/d (Hill's Pet Nutrition, Inc., Topeka, KS) labeled with 99mTc-disofenin (Hepatolite, DuPont Merck Pharmaceutical Co., Billerica, Mass.) was fed on four separate days. Scintigraphic images were obtained at time 0 and then every 30 minutes to 6 hours. On the fourth scan day, 30 small (1.5 mm) and 10 large (5 mm) BIPS (Chemstock Animal Health Ltd., Christchurch, New Zealand) were mixed with the labeled meal, and in addition to scintigraphy, radiographs were made at 60-minute intervals ...

Numeracy Gets A Guernsey Alongside Literacy, Dave Tout

David (Dave) Tout

This article discusses a proposed followup to the International Adult Literacy Survey called the International Life Skills Survey. This will assess performance in four skills domains - prose literacy, document literacy, numeracy and problem solving - and make behavioural reports in teamwork, practical cognition, and information and communication technology. This article looks at the numeracy aspects.
