Research evidence indicates that formative assessment is one of the most effective ways of enhancing student learning. It is, however, difficult to implement successfully, principally because what is tested through summative assessment has such a powerful influence on teacher and student actions. This book scrutinizes the relationship between testing and learning from alternative perspectives to the dominant literature from the major Anglophone countries. It develops the notion of contextually grounded formative assessment practices by analyzing data from schools in the Confucian-heritage setting of Hong Kong. It explores questions such as: • Under what circumstances do tests support or hinder student learning? • How can teachers effectively prepare students for tests and appropriately follow up after tests? • What are the key socio-cultural influences impacting on testing and student learning in the classroom? • How do teachers change in their orientation towards assessment and what support do they require? This text is a valuable resource for education students, professionals and researchers, policy-makers and curriculum developers.

This book brings together internationally recognised scholars with an interest in how to use the power of assessment to improve student learning and to engage with accountability priorities at both national and global levels. It includes distinguished writers who have worked together for some two decades to shift the assessment paradigm from a dominant focus on assessment as measurement towards assessment as central to efforts to improve learning. These writers have worked with the teaching profession and, in so doing, have researched and generated key insights into different ways of understanding assessment and its relationship to learning. The volume contributes to the theorising of assessment in contexts characterised by heightened accountability requirements and constant change. The book’s structure and content reflect already significant and growing international interest in assessment as contextualised practice, as well as theories of learning and teaching that underpin and drive particular assessment approaches. Learning theories and practices, assessment literacies, teachers’ responsibilities in assessment, the role of leadership, and assessment futures are the organisers within the book’s structure and content. The contributors to this book have in common the view that quality assessment, and quality learning and teaching are integrally related. Another shared view is that the alignment of assessment with curriculum, teaching and learning is linchpin to efforts to improve both learning opportunities and outcomes for all. Essentially, the book presents new perspectives on the enabling power of assessment. In so doing, the writers recognise that validity and reliability - the traditional canons of assessment – remain foundational and therefore necessary. However, they are not of themselves sufficient for quality education. The book argues that assessment needs to be radically reconsidered in the context of unprecedented societal change. Increasingly, communities are segregating more by wealth, with clear signs of social, political, economic and environmental instability. These changes raise important issues relating to ethics and equity, taken to be core dimensions in enabling the power of assessment to contribute to quality learning for all. This book offers readers new knowledge about how assessment can be used to re/engage learners across all phases of education.

"This book explores the decline of the teaching of epistemic, conceptual knowledge in schools, its replacement with everyday social knowledge, and its relation to changes in the division of labor within the global economy. It argues that the emphasis on social knowledge in postmodern and social constructionist pedagogy compounds the problem, and examines the consequences of these changes for educational opportunity and democracy itself"-- Provided by publisher.

Handy und fragmentierte Kulturen der Lebensstile sind normale Wirklichkeit. Vertraute Kulturen haben ihre Bindungskraft verloren, neue Medien-Kulturen setzen Kindern und Jugendlichen unklare und dennoch prägende Strukturen für die Entwicklung ihrer Kompetenzen. Wie kann man als Pädagoge in der widersprüchlichen Veränderung unserer Kultur eine Linie finden, um Kindern und Jugendlichen Teilhabe an der neuen und alten Medien-Kultur und eben auch einer eigenständigen Entwicklung zu ermöglichen? In der deutsch- und englischsprachigen Diskussion beginnen sich aktuell Analysen und praktische Vorschläge zu ordnen. Als ein Leitgedanke zeichnet sich Literalität als Teilhabe an unserer Kultur und deren widersprüchlicher Medienvielfalt ab.

Die 'Teacher Education and Development Study: Learning to Teach Mathematics (TEDS-M)' der International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) war die erste international-vergleichende Studie, die den tertiären Bildungssektor mit standardisierten Testungen in den Blick nahm. Die Studie verglich die am Ende der Mathematiklehrerausbildung erreichten Kompetenzen von Lehrkräften für die Primarstufe und die Sekundarstufe I in 16 Staaten. Deutschland beteiligte sich mit repräsentativen Stichproben von Mathematiklehrkräften für die Primarstufe bzw. die Sekundarstufe I im letzten Jahr ihrer Ausbildung aus allen Bundesländern sowie einer repräsentativen Stichprobe von Lehrerausbildenden in entsprechenden Ausbildungsgängen. Diese Skalendokumentation enthält - soweit freigegeben - die Instrumente aller TEDS-M-Befragungen und -Testungen in deutscher und englischer Sprache (einschl. Kodierleitfäden). Für die Verwendung in weiteren Studien werden die Fragen zur Person ebenso dokumentiert wie die Fragen zu den Überzeugungen und Lerngelegenheiten der angehenden Lehrkräfte sowie der Lehrerausbildenden. Die Skalendokumentation stellt so auch ein unverzichtbares Hilfsmittel dar, um mit den kürzlich freigegebenen TEDS-M-Datensätzen Sekundäranalysen durchführen zu können. Darüber hinaus können der Skalendokumentation die wichtigsten Kennwerte zu den TEDS-M-Ergebnissen entnommen werden: Häufigkeiten, Mittelwerte, Standardfehler, verschiedene Verteilungsmaße und die Anteile fehlender Werte.
