2. Kevin Mattingly, dean of faculty at Lawrenceville School (NJ): We talk about 21st century skills and conceptual frameworks, and we say, this is what our kids need! How, then, do we find out and evaluate what they know, probing empatheticallyAssessing What Matters and fair-mindedly? 3. Technology-based assessments that combine cognitive research and theory about how students think with multimedia, interactivity, and connectivity. This can be done within the contextNETP of relevant societal issues and problems that people care about in everyday life. Systems can be designed to capture students inputs and collect evidence of their knowledge and problem- solving abilities. 4. My Goal Today:Explore and examine an array of tools andtechniques situated in, suited to, and/or alignedwith blended learning which effectively provideassessments of, for, and as 21st century learning. 5. Commission on AccreditationCriterion 13The standards require a school to provide evidence of a thoughtful process, respectful of its mission, for the collection and use in school decision-making of data (bothexternal and internal) about student learning 6.

Blended Assessment ofHigher Order Thinking Skills 16. CWRA is doing trulygroundbreaking work indeveloping assessmentsof the skills that mattermost in the 21st century.The beauty of theCLA/CWRA is that it testsskills all teachers shouldbe accountable forteaching in every class 17. What is a performance task? Students assumeroles in a scenario that is a situated "realworld" and contains the types of problemsthey might need to solve in the future or thepresent. Often documents must beevaluated for informing answers. The task requires critical thinking, analyticalreasoning and problem solving.Communication skills are used in describingthe solution. 18.

Blood donation is thus irreplaceable and essential to save lives. In France, each year, 500,000 patients benefit from a blood transfusion.The instruments for taking the blood are sterile andsingle-use (syringe, tubes, bags).There is no risk in giving your blood.Blood donation:It is the best-known kind of donation, and takes from 45 minutes to 1hour.A 450-ml bag is taken as well as some small samples on which tests and checks will bedone.- A man can give his blood five times a year, a woman three times.- Donors can be from 18 to 65 years old.An 8-week interval is compulsory between each donation. 23.

OCT: Open Computer Testing What matters is no longer what one knows, but whatone can do with what one knows and with information one can access, evaluate, and apply.

From BBC News, about DenmarkAt five to nine, the room falls silent. One of theteachers stands in front of the class and explains therules. She tells the candidates they can use theinternet to answer any of the four questions. Theycan access any site they like, even Facebook, butthey cannot message each other or email anyoneoutside the classroom.Minister for education in Denmark, Bertel Haarder,says: Our exams have to reflect daily life in theclassroom and daily life in the classroom has toreflect life in society. 29. We dont have to memorize everything- which isbasically what is going to happen in actual careers youdont have to memorize everything you need to knowyou can look it up on the fly. By having the internet available you can get a lotmore information to use on your exam and get a betterunderstanding. You still need to memorize and learn the basics. We are still studying to learn how to apply facts on thetest. And we are studying to determine what the mostefficient way to find the information. 30. Sidebar 31.
