Transcript of SXSWedu2017 Think Outside the Bubble

Educators generally are not sold on the value of standardized testing —
44% of superintendents, 37% of principals and
15% of teachers
believe these
tests are helpful

Josephson Institute survey on the state of education in America
80% of educators
did not believe that
standardized tests
measured student achievement

Indiana State Teacher’s Association Survey
So, what’s possible?
How can assessments
empower students
to chart their own learning path?
What if assessments themselves were guided by
learning science
What if assessments
measured what really matters
to students?

Next generation educators

longitudinal data
, validated performance-tasks and
formative assessments
, and systems such as
to measure student outcomes

Measures that Matter Most Report
Choosing the right tool for the job
Digital badging
Teacher-generated assessments that enhance and respect teachers’ professional judgment
Rubric-based evaluation
Embedded assessments
Portfolios and presentations of learning
Performance-based assessments
Good news!

reimagine assessment
New Hampshire “Test Case”
7 elementary schools
in NH are piloting methods for combining
learning and performance assessments in
multi-age learning

Engage local New school leaders in a
thinktank model

promote deeper learning
resulting in increased academic and social outcomes for children and youth
Summit Public Schools “Test Case”

The Hypothesis:
Create a common language for Habits of Success
Develop assessments around this common language that allow for formative and summative measurement of student growth
Use this assessment system in conjunction with the other components of our personalized learning model
we will see measurable growth in students’ Habits of Success, which will lead to greater student success on other measurements of skill and knowledge, including their cognitive skills and content knowledge
