Knowing what students know : the science and design of educational assessment by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Knowing What Students Know essentially explains how expanding knowledge in the scientific fields of human learning and educational measurement can form the foundations of an improved approach to assessment. These advances suggest ways that the targets of assessment-what students know and how well they know it-as well as the methods used to make inferences about student learning can be made more valid and instructionally useful. Principles for designing and using these new kinds of assessments are presented, and examples are used to illustrate the principles. Implications for policy, practice, and research are also explored. -- Publisher description

Learning and programmed instruction by Julian I Taber( Book )

15 editions published between 1965 and 1979 in English and Spanish and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Programed instruction applies what is known about learning to educational psychology. The success of programed learning is determined by the material used and by the construction of this material. In order to construct effective learning sequences, the behavioral end products of instruction must be specified clearly and precisely. The subject being taught must be presented in a carefully arranged series of steps, called frames. The sequence as a whole, not the features of a single frame, guides the learner by encouraging the repetition of an increasingly more precise response in appropriate situations. Learning is fostered by reinforcement and "reward," in conjunction with appropriate cuing and immediate feedback. There are two types of programs, linear and branching, with intrinsic programs and multi-track programs being forms of branching. Current programs employ several different response modes, among which multiple response and constructed response are the most widely used. (Oh)

Innovations in learning : new environments for education by Leona Schauble( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume documents the growth of a new kind of interdisciplinary teamwork that is evolving among practitioners, researchers, teacher educators, and community partners. Its premise: the design of learning environments and the development of theory must proceed in a mutually supportive fashion. Scientific researchers have learned that a prerequisite to studying the kinds of learning that matter is helping to shoulder the responsibility for ensuring that these forms of learning occur. To support and study learning, researchers are increasingly making major and long-term investments in the desi

Current trends in the description and analysis of behavior by Robert Glaser( Book )

19 editions published in 1958 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each year since 1947 the University of Pittsburgh has sponsored a conference dealing with current advances and probable future developments in an active area of psychology. This year the departmental committee was interested in the general problem of measurement since there is the continuous need for the development of methods to quantify the stubborn and elusive phenomena of behavior. The title selected was "The Description and Analysis of Behavior." Most of the papers in the present volume deal with this topic although the invited speakers were free to suggest their individual titles. A few of the topics touched on include: task-oriented groups, psychopathology, psychophysiology, human behavior, social psychology, psycholinguistics, and psychotherapy"--Preface.

Investigators have moved back and forth between design efforts and basic studies in cognition to improve both application and fundamental knowledge. This volume's theme is this interaction between practice and science with the opportunity for reflecting on findings in order to understand them and suggesting improved forms of application and their underlying explanation. This is seen in various arenas including theory-based computer-assisted instruction for teaching mathematics, the design of communities of learning in elementary schools, teaching in the context of problem-solving situations an
