OECD Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) Australia

The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an international study that measures the knowledge and skills of 15-year-old students and how prepared they are to use these to meet real-life opportunities and challenges.

50 Anos De Evolução Nos Estudos Linguísticos Transculturais: Da Retórica Contrastiva À Retórica Intercultural, David Sánchez-Jiménez Sep 2020

50 Anos De Evolução Nos Estudos Linguísticos Transculturais: Da Retórica Contrastiva À Retórica Intercultural, David Sánchez-Jiménez

Publications and Research

Este trabalho apresenta um panorama histórico dos estudos linguísticos transculturais, discorrendo sobre o surgimento da retórica contrastiva por meio do trabalho seminal de Robert Kaplan em 1966 e as contribuições de Ulla Connor ao rebatizar tais estudos como retórica intercultural. Explana-se também sobre as críticas endereçadas à retórica contrastiva feitas durante os anos 1980, 1990 e 2000 e de que maneira tais críticas redefiniram o quadro teórico-metodológico e o objeto de estudo da disciplina. Conclui-se com exposição de uma crítica à homogeneização das distintas culturas retóricas causada pela globalização e internacionalização do inglês no âmbito acadêmico e nas atividades profissionais.

Implementation Of A Low-Stakes Daily Assessment In A Large Introductory Lac Course, Marian I. Hamilton Sep 2020

Implementation Of A Low-Stakes Daily Assessment In A Large Introductory Lac Course, Marian I. Hamilton

2020 Teaching and Learning Symposium Poster Presentations

Low-stakes assessments contribute to positive classroom culture, increase student confidence and preparation, provide feedback to the professor on common misconceptions, and open up lines of communication between students and professors. Here, I present an example of how Canvas can be leveraged to perform a daily, low-stakes assessment in a medium-to-large LAC introductory course. These daily assessments hold students accountable for attendance and participation without levying harsh penalties for personal circumstances, allow the professor to nimbly address misconceptions in real time, and increase the personal relationship between students and professor in a setting in which it would otherwise be easiest for ...

The purpose of this project was to evaluate, revise, and align program-level assessments for the Physical Education K-12 Teaching program.

This presentation will describe an overview of the process, major updates and changes to the program, and future steps for implementation.


Call Of The Wild: A Qualitative Analysis Of Goal-Setting Among Biology Undergraduates At A Regional Zoo, Ashley Barbara Heim, Emily A. Holt Sep 2020

Call Of The Wild: A Qualitative Analysis Of Goal-Setting Among Biology Undergraduates At A Regional Zoo, Ashley Barbara Heim, Emily A. Holt

2020 Teaching and Learning Symposium Poster Presentations

Free-choice learning at informal settings among undergraduates is relatively understudied. The purpose of the current study was to qualitatively describe what goals biology students set for themselves during an intervention at a regional zoo, and to describe what types of goals students were able to fulfill during this learning opportunity. Based on student responses on this assessment administered in Fall 2018, we aimed to refine the Goal-Setting Assessment, and give context to our initial findings. Specifically, we intended to refine this assessment so that the items are broad enough to be used both in formal classrooms and out-of-school environments.

An online survey instrument was developed to assess employers’ perspectives on hiring job candidates with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The investigators used K-means clustering to categorize companies in clusters based on their hiring practices related to individuals with ASD. This methodology allowed the investigators to assess and compare the various factors of businesses that successfully hire employees with ASD versus those that do not. The cluster analysis indicated that company structures, policies and practices, and perceptions, as well as the needs of employers and employees, were important in determining who would successfully hire individuals with ASD. Key areas that require ...
