Assessments for Personalized Instruction and Learning

Brief description of the episode

Paul Grudnitski, CEO of AmpUp IO delves into the role of assessments in personalizing learning and discusses what the future of learning assessments holds.

Key Takeaways:

  • Formative assessments can be used to measure the progress of students in the beginning, middle, and end to personalize instruction.
  • Measuring student progress can lead instructors to develop the right strategies for personalizing learning through their teaching plans.
  • They can plan resources that will help facilitate the acquisition of learning.
  • And can decide the way through which the student will demonstrate their learning.
  • Adaptive assessments estimate a student’s ongoing ability and depending on how they answer the question, it proposes easier or harder items depending on the ability estimate.
  • Through the adaptive item’s score, in the context of a single item, instructors get an idea of how the student is progressing based on their answers to provide hints accordingly.
  • Use QTI 3 as the new standard for building adaptive items to improve student achievement and student outcomes in the realm of mathematics.
  • Cognitive Diagnostic modeling computes probabilities very rapidly and this accelerates the movement to personalized learning and instruction.
  • Machine learning tech like Bayesian networks tell educators where student interventions need to be made and improves their probability of skill mastery.
