Assessment: Measure What Matters: ◦ Technology-based assessments that combine cognitive research and theory about how students think with multimedia, interactivity, and connectivity make it possible to directly assess these types of skills. ◦ This can be done within the context 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.

This process uses Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA)a mathematical/statistical technique—to create computer models that can be used to assist in the scoring ofwritten responses. The computer‐assisted process requires extensivescoring of written responses by trained human scorers using a well‐articulated scoring rubric.Research shows that the computer‐assisted scoring used by CLA is asaccurate as or more accurate than human expert scoring.http://www.collegiatelearningassessment.org/files/ComputerAssistedScoringofCLA.pdf

7) Calculate the frequency of radiation with a wavelengthof 115 nm. Show work or indicate specific solutionmethod (reproduce text entered in command line ofWolfram). (3 pts) [Wolfram is the general solution method, althoughfailure to understand the relationships between photonwavelength, frequency, and energy often leads to incorrectanswers. Here a case where one needs to understand howWolfram structures this particular "knowledge" to get thecorrect answer]
For Schools, OCT provides a vehicle to prioritize and drive instruction toward 21st century skills, applied thinking, and better preparation for future careers. For Teachers, OCT entails rethinking assessment and designing ―google-proof‖ questions which demand higher order thinking and information literacy and assess more lasting understanding. For Students, OCT when well designed is rigorous, and more authentic, more motivating, and requires greater information access, analysis, and application skills, better organization, and stronger real-world problemsolving skills.
Prepare 3 slides, each with a use, current oremerging, of technology which supports these six core components of schools of the future. Insert the slide in the right section. Each slide should feature one use, an image/logo, a link, and no more than 8 words, Be prepared to discuss/explain your slide in no more than 20 seconds. http://goo.gl/sOsfv
