Abstract

Writing has changed due to the affordances of digital technologies, and writing assessment has changed as well. As writing programs integrate more digital writing work, students, teachers, and administrators face the rewards and challenges of assessing and evaluating multimodal and networked writing projects. Whether classroom-based or program-level; whether in first-year writing, technical communication, or writing-across-the-curriculum; whether formative or summative; and whether for purposes of placement, grading, self-study, or external reporting, digital writing complicates the processes and practices of assessment.The chapters in Digital Writing Assessment & Evaluation place emphasis on assessment of digital writing—the methodological, technological, and ethical approaches for and issues involved with assessing multimodal, networked texts (and the student learning they represent). Authors address questions such as:How do different approaches to assessing traditional writing (8 1/2 x 11 word-centric texts) port—or not—to the assessment of digital writing? What challenges and opportunities for assessment do multimodal, networked texts present to teachers, program administrators, state-wide organizations, etc.?What material and technological resources are needed when assessing digital writing and/or how might existing resources need to be modified?How are processes and products of selection, collection, and reflection different (or not) with the multimodal affordances of digital technologies?How do guidelines and outcomes of groups such as CCCC, NCTE, WPA, AAC&U, impact approaches to assessment? How might these guidelines and outcomes need to be revised to better address digital writing assessment?How might the multimodal, networked affordances of digital writing affect issues of equity and access? How might groups often disenfranchised by more traditional assessment be impacted by digital writing assessment?How might eportfolios be designed for showcasing the collaborative composing processes of multimodal and/or networked writing?By what criteria should program administrators and instructors assess and select course-management and/or eportfolio systems?The fourteen chapters are organized into four sections, addressing equity and assessment, classroom evaluation and assessment, multimodal evaluation and assessment, and program revisioning and program assessment. Andrea Lunsford provides the foreword to the book; Edward White is the author of the afterword.

Abstract

This volume offers insights from modelling measures of parental involvement and their relationship with student reading literacy across countries, exploring and incorporating cultural differences. This is a significant contribution to a field where cross-cultural comparisons from a triangulated perspective are sparse. For readers interested in exploring the relationship between parental involvement and student attainment, the literature review provides a useful starting point. Meanwhile, for the more methodologically interested reader, this report presents state-of-the-art ways to identify and model cultural differential item functioning in international large-scale assessment (ILSA), illustrating the extent to which the parental involvement construct may be influenced by cultural differences and how this may affect the outcomes of cross-cultural comparisons. The framework is generic and should provide a solid foundation for future ILSA practices and secondary analyses. ILSA studies like the IEA’s Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) provide valuable data, containing both student achievement data and contextual background data from schools, teachers, students and parents for over 41 countries.

Abstract

La marée noire causée par les installations pétrolières Deepwater Horizon dans le golfe du Mexique en 2010 a rappelé le préjudice écologique incontestable provoqué par les déversements d’hydrocarbures. Cependant, combien vaut un oiseau mort ? Le droit vient-il encadrer la réparation d’un tel préjudice ? Plus généralement, le droit international parvient-il à appréhender les spécificités du dommage environnemental pur ? Ce travail s’attaque à la question – centrale bien que peu étudiée – de l’...

Abstract

Les fonctions de l’évaluation des compétences scolaires ont largement évolué tout au long du xxe siècle, tant en psychologie qu’en éducation. Conçus d’abord pour classer et orienter les élèves, les outils d’évaluation ont progressivement permis de mieux comprendre les processus d’apprentissage dans le but d’améliorer l’efficacité des actions éducatives et la prise en charge des élèves en difficulté. Cette évolution n’est pas le fait du hasard. Elle est en grande partie dépendante de l’évoluti...

Abstract

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are changing the educational field, challenging traditional institutional strategies and recognition schemes and opening up new opportunities for learners and educators both from within and outside formal education. However, while the potential benefits and risks of the MOOCs have been discussed by scientists and policy makers, the corresponding empirical data is scarce. What’s more, the evidence that is available is usually restricted to a single course or single provider.MOOCKnowledge (http://moocknowledge.eu/), funded by the European Commission’s Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS), aims to facilitate a shared understanding of the value and efficacy of MOOCs by developing a set of analysis tools and applying them to a wide range of MOOCs.The most powerful outcome of the project would be the possibility to correlate different dimensions of MOOC production, execution, and learners experience. For example, identifying links between financial investment, learning design, and learner outcomes. To do this, we must first develop a conceptual model of the factors which determine or contribute to the value of a MOOC.

Abstract

There has been an enormous increase in interest in the use of evidence for public policymaking, but the vast majority of work on the subject has failed to engage with the political nature of decision making and how this influences the ways in which evidence will be used (or misused) within political areas. This book provides new insights into the nature of political bias with regards to evidence and critically considers what an ‘improved’ use of evidence would look like from a policymaking perspective. Part I describes the great potential for evidence to help achieve social goals, as well as the challenges raised by the political nature of policymaking. It explores the concern of evidence advocates that political interests drive the misuse or manipulation of evidence, as well as counter-concerns of critical policy scholars about how appeals to ‘evidence-based policy’ can depoliticise political debates. Both concerns reflect forms of bias – the first representing technical bias, whereby evidence use violates principles of scientific best practice, and the second representing issue bias in how appeals to evidence can shift political debates to particular questions or marginalise policy-relevant social concerns.&#xD;&#xD;Part II then draws on the fields of policy studies and cognitive psychology to understand the origins and mechanisms of both forms of bias in relation to political interests and values. It illustrates how such biases are not only common, but can be much more predictable once we recognise their origins and manifestations in policy arenas.&#xD;&#xD;Finally, Part III discusses ways to move forward for those seeking to improve the use of evidence in public policymaking. It explores what constitutes ‘good evidence for policy’, as well as the ‘good use of evidence’ within policy processes, and considers how to build evidence-advisory institutions that embed key principles of both scientific good practice and democratic representation. Taken as a whole, the approach promoted is termed the ‘good governance of evidence’ – a concept that represents the use of rigorous, systematic and technically valid pieces of evidence within decision-making processes that are representative of, and accountable to, populations served.

Abstract

This book develops a fresh and challenging perspective on ignorance. Drawing on a wide and diverse range of expert interviews and policy documents from nanotechnology discourses in Britain, Germany, the US and the EU, it argues that contemporary knowledge societies lack robust instruments with which they can regulate technosciences. Due to the high amount of ignorance inherent in technosciences and emerging technologies, a broad range of societal actors are involved in assessing and regulating them. This leads to a situation where expertise is being delegated to society as a whole, the boundaries between reliable and speculative knowledge are merging and responsibilities specific to certain institutions are dissolving.

Abstract

Evaluations assess the effectiveness of a public policy using a scientific approach and thus provide bases to make effects-oriented and well-founded decisions in parliament. Although policy evaluations have been established in Switzerland, research on their role in the parliaments is limited. This book investigates the use of policy evaluations and its explaining factors based on a survey of cantonal and national members of parliament and studies of cantonal legislative processes. In doing so, it contributes to the question of what role knowledge plays in today’s modern parliaments.&#xD;
