Will that be on the final!? by Ohmer Milton( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educators are called upon to improve the quality of classroom tests to enhance the learning of content. Less faculty concern for tests than for other features of instruction, compounded by a lack of knowing how to assess different levels of learning with test questions that measure complex processes, appear to generate poor quality classroom tests. Research indicates that publisher supplied items and many instructors' tests include mostly recall items requiring students to memorize details and to study little else. This results in a deficiency of analytical skills (the higher order processes of application and evaluation) and a decrease in content learning. (Pn)

The Testing and Grading of Students by Ohmer Milton( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although over 100 million tests are administered each year and testing is a subject of increasing contention among students, faculty members remain diffident. A better understanding of the purpose and structure of evaluating mechanisms is a prerequisite for widespread improvement. Teachers must understand what factors play a part in measuring learning. If learning goals and course objectives are properly defined, they will be essential ingredients of success for student and teacher alike. Since multiple-choice and essay tests are most commonly used in college today, a thorough analysis of their structure and purpose is undertaken to clarify underlying principles of evaluation as a learning tool. Letter grading, the most commonly accepted form of evaluation, is particularly susceptible to the charge of insufficient feedback to the student. A more fundamental grasp of the options for academic measurement is the most direct route to improved grading. Growing external pressures are forcing faculty to reexamine student evaluation. The use of external examiners and the establishment of effective campus grievance arrangements are only two of the ways recommended to improve an increasingly bothersome issue in academic life. (Lbh)

Teaching or Learning? by Ohmer Milton( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article, the 6th in a series of aahe research reports, summarizes research on teaching and learning. Most studies on teaching methods conclude that there are no significant differences between the various teaching methods and student achievement. The problem with these studies is that they have concentrated on teaching and have ignored learning and the learner. There are many omissions in the research, such as what courses and subject matter areas promote critical thinking and a spirit of inquiry; and how students can be helped to become independent learners. Some studies in the past few years have begun to probe the underlying complexities of teaching-learning. One of the best examples of the new approach for both conceptualizing the issues and investigating them is the Instructional Gestalt. Many of the recently introduced approaches to instruction can be grouped into three categories: (1) personalized, individualized to process instruction (p-i-p); (2) experiential learning; and (3) acceleration programs. Results of this recent research points out that the role of the instructor must be altered and broadened. There can be a dramatic decrease in dispensing content and lecturing in the classroom without any decrease in the quality of learning. (Af)
