Making sense of test-based accountability in education( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Test-based accountability systems that attach high stakes to standardized test results in the form of rewards and sanctions have raised a number of issues for those responsible for educational assessment and accountability. Do these high-stakes tests measure student achievement accurately? How can policymakers and educators attach the right consequences to the results of these tests? What kinds of educational tradeoffs do these testing policies introduce? This book was written in response to school policymaking's growing emphasis on high-stakes testing. It addresses several key areas, including how the tests are used within these systems, how to evaluate the technical quality and trustworthiness of the tests, how test-based accountability affects the practices of teachers and schools, and what effect political considerations have on the policy debate. The authors also provide some recommendations for developing more-effective test-based accountability systems

International assessment of research and development in simulation-based engineering and science by Sharon C Glotzer( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Simulation-Based Engineering and Science (SBE&S) cuts across disciplines, showing tremendous promise in areas from storm prediction and climate modeling to understanding the brain and the behavior of numerous other complex systems. In this groundbreaking volume, nine distinguished leaders assess the latest research trends, as a result of 52 site visits in Europe and Asia and hundreds of hours of expert interviews, and discuss the implications of their findings for the US government. The authors conclude that while the US remains the quantitative leader in SBE&S research and development, it is very much in danger of losing that edge to Europe and Asia.

Enabling American innovation : engineering and the National Science Foundation by Dian Olson Belanger( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study traces engineers' struggle to win intellectual, financial, and organizational recognition within the National Science Foundation (NSF), a federal agency formed in 1950 to support basic scientific research. The tools and arguments of this struggle altered over time, but engineers continued to assert the value of their contribution, usually measured in comparative budgetary terms, and philosophical debates, as they were played out through organizational manipulation. By the 1980s, NSF leaders agreed that engineering and science should enjoy an equal and mutually beneficial relationship within the NSF
