Decolonizing Educational Assessment Ontario Elementary Students and the EQAO

Decolonizing Educational Assessment Ontario Elementary Students and the EQAO

Author: Ardavan Eizadirad Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/11/2019

This book examines the history of standardized testing in Ontario leading to the current context and its impact on racialized identities, particularly on Grade 3 students, parents, and educators. Using a theoretical argument supplemented with statistical trends, the author illuminates how EQAO tests are culturally and racially biased and promote a Eurocentric curriculum and way of life privileging white students and those from higher socio-economic status. This book spurs readers to further question the use of EQAO standardized testing and challenges us to consider alternative models which serve the needs of all students.

The Primacy of PISA How the World's Most Important Test Is Changing Education Globally

The Primacy of PISA How the World's Most Important Test Is Changing Education Globally

Author: Joseph M. Piro Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/11/2019

Every three years the world awaits the results of the Programme for International Student Assessment or PISA, the rankings of school systems overseen by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Nations around the world look eagerly and apprehensively to see where their students rank on these tests of competence in, mainly, science, math and reading. This book provides a window into PISA and its power. What exactly is PISA? How are its tests developed? Who takes the test? What countries tend to outperform and which underperform? What do countries learn from PISA? Why is PISA both revered and feared? And, most importantly, does PISA improve education globally? The first PISA, in 2000, included 32 countries. In 2018, nearly eighty nations took part in PISA. That number is expected to double by 2030. This may mean that students in over 80% of the world's countries will take the PISA exams. This scenario has made PISA more important than ever. This book probes topics and themes related to the world's most important exam and why many view a high PISA ranking-rightly or wrongly-as global education's seal of approval. Because of this, PISA has been called a disruptor, a test which can trigger major reform in school systems around the world. But is it the PISA rankings that are the real disruptor or the decisions countries make because of their rankings? These decisions often involve systemic changes in teaching and learning which can substantially alter how a country measures and prioritizes its education system.

Diversity, Funding, and Standardized Testing in American Education Causes of Inequality

Diversity, Funding, and Standardized Testing in American Education Causes of Inequality

Author: Jose Martinez Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/10/2019

In Diversity, Funding, and Standardized Testing in American Education, noted education expert Jose Martinez's examines current aspects of inequality in American education, examining the complex nexus of funding, diversity, and the increasingly contentious role of standardized testing. A readable narrative format assesses the extensive documentation, which demonstrates that inequality is becoming entrenched throughout the education system, in no small measure due to biases in standardized testing systems. Students from kindergarten through university face the arising challenges while their environments are becoming more diverse. Funding levels in education are also posited as causes of inequality. This complements the view that standardized testing at all levels of education mirrors and exacerbates entrenched economic inequality. Education funding and standardized testing at all levels have thus become basic mechanisms that purposefully reproduce and maintain a two-tiered society. The solutions are not difficult to discern, as other societies can attest, but Martinez's thought-provoking new book moves toward engaging them.

The Impact of Feedback in Higher Education Improving Assessment Outcomes for Learners

The Impact of Feedback in Higher Education Improving Assessment Outcomes for Learners

Author: Michael Henderson Format: Hardback Release Date: 17/10/2019

This book asks how we might conceptualise, design for and evaluate the impact of feedback in higher education. Ultimately, the purpose of feedback is to improve what students can do: therefore, effective feedback must have impact. Students need to be actively engaged in seeking, sense-making and acting upon any information provided to them in order to develop and improve. Feedback can thus be understood as not just the giving of information, but as a complex process integral to teaching and learning in which both teachers and students have an important role to play. The editors challenge us to ask two fundamental questions: when does feedback make a difference, and how can we recognise that impact? This volume draws together leading international researchers across diverse disciplines, offering promising directions for both research and practice.
