Assessment

Discussing a New Generation of Assessments

By Katie Ash — March 03, 2009 1 min read

A couple weeks back, Education Sector released a new report about the role of technology in assessment. The report, “Beyond the Bubble: Technology and the Future of Student Assessment,” talked about how technology could be used to automate assessments to provide quicker feedback. But it also looked at how it could help transform assessment to provide meaningful data on students’ test answers and, perhaps more importantly, how they got them.

From today through Thursday, Education Sector is hosting a discussion about the report with its author, Bill Tucker, as well as education experts Charles Barone, Margaret Honey, and Scott Marion. Readers are encouraged to submit questions and join into the discussion.
