Title: Classroom Assessment: A Key Component to Support Education Transformation
Author: Jon Price Daniel Light Elizabeth Pierson
Summary: Through initiatives like Assessment and Teaching of 21st Century Skills (ATC21S ) Intel® has been collaborating with governments and policy-makers to create new national standards and national assessments. But Intel’s professional development programs help teachers use assessment for learning as part of a 21st century learning environment. In this paper, we highlight the research on six assessment strategies that should be part of a 21st century learning environment and encourage ministries to consider how these strategies may play a role in their own reform efforts: 1) Rubrics, 2) Performance-based assessments (PBAs), 3) Portfolios, 4) Student self-assessment, 5) Peer-assessment, 6) Student response systems (SRS).
