How can technology be used to help transform “standardized assessment” practices? How can we make change happen faster?

How can technology be used to help transform “standardized assessment” practices?

Some terrific presentations this week from my peers.  I know that each presentation shows a lot of discussion and thought around this issue from the different perspectives – student, teacher, parent, politician, and administration.  It is not too surprising, that there was a lot of alignment between the perspectives for the use of technology –  individualized authentic assessments, decrease student/teacher anxiety, give feedback, reflect 21st Century learning, and other ideas.  It would be difficult for each group to go about making big picture changes to standardized assessment on their own and without considering the varying opinions of the other players.

It did make me wonder….

How about EQAOs perspective?

How we can make change happen faster than we see now… does something radical need to happen first? what would that be?

Cheers
