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

23 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 2,249 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 )

11 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 417 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)

"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.
