    • 6. 6 EACEA - Lifelong Learning Programme http://www.slideshare.net/holmebn/holmes-online-educa-assessment-workshop-2010 New skills for new jobs (1/2) Redecker et al (p.135, 2010) • Study by JRC of competences needed for 2020-30 • Linked to EU’s Europe 2020 strategy • Consulted a variety of stakeholders • Asked their opinion on a number of scenarios
    • 7. 7 EACEA - Lifelong Learning Programme http://www.slideshare.net/holmebn/holmes-online-educa-assessment-workshop-2010 New skills for new jobs (2/2) 88% of respondents agreed that: “Education and training institutions have to implement better monitoring and assessment mechanisms which detect individual learning needs” Redecker et al (p.17, 2010) Redecker et al (2010)
    • 8. 8 EACEA - Lifelong Learning Programme http://www.slideshare.net/holmebn/holmes-online-educa-assessment-workshop-2010 Impact of web 2.0 on learning “The present forms of assessment, certification and accreditation do not adequately capture the learning processes and outcomes that arise in social computing environments” Redecker et al (p.103, 2009) Redecker et al (2009)
    • 9. 9 EACEA - Lifelong Learning Programme http://www.slideshare.net/holmebn/holmes-online-educa-assessment-workshop-2010 Online learning communities • Online communities support learning with experts and workers with relevant knowledge, skills and competences • They have major potential for the Education and Training policy objectives • “However, this requires the revision of strategies for curricula development, learning methods and objectives and assessment approaches in institutions” Ala-Mutka (p.63, 2008) Ala-Mutka (2008)
    • 10. 10 EACEA - Lifelong Learning Programme http://www.slideshare.net/holmebn/holmes-online-educa-assessment-workshop-2010 ICT in primary schools • ICT supported assessment can give more sophisticated feedback to teachers, pupils and parents • Virtual Learning Environments allow individual tracking of progress (e.g. in ePortfolios) • ICT can support pupils to assess their own progress • Further investigation is needed into all aspects of assessment EUN (2009)
    • 11. 11 EACEA - Lifelong Learning Programme http://www.slideshare.net/holmebn/holmes-online-educa-assessment-workshop-2010 What do teachers think? “Education policy cannot promote education based upon collaborative learning, with an emphasis on 'know how' rather than 'know why', focusing on the development of transversal skills, networked learning, etc., whilst maintaining assessment approaches that are based upon summative exams in physical locations that mainly test factual memory.” Ala-Mutka et al (p.38, 2010) Ala-Mutka et al (2010)
    • 12. 12 EACEA - Lifelong Learning Programme http://www.slideshare.net/holmebn/holmes-online-educa-assessment-workshop-2010 What do policymakers think (1/2)? “Using ICT throughout the academic year and then providing end-of-year pen and paper tests are not a compatible exercise and will affect adversely the pupil performance. Hence assessment should also mirror how ICT has been utilised in the classroom and in education in general.” EU (p.20, 2010)EU (2010) ICT cluster
    • 13. 13 EACEA - Lifelong Learning Programme http://www.slideshare.net/holmebn/holmes-online-educa-assessment-workshop-2010 What do policymakers think (2/2)? • Demonstrating progress in developing key competences is motivating for learners • Crucial to the innovative use of assessment are the competences of teachers • Assessment is a multi-faceted process including culture, values and ethics • Who has the right to assess, interpret results and communicate them? • What is the impact on an individual’s self-esteem and motivation? • New assessment approaches needed to assess transversal competences EU (2009)
