Three Approaches for the Integration of Teaching, Testing, and Learning.
Kim, JinGyu
The relationships among teaching, testing, and learning are examined and reconceptualized based on different theories and computer adaptive testing. Approaches that integrate teaching, testing, and learning include: (1) behavioral psychology; (2) cognitive psychology; and (3) computer adaptive testing (CAT). Some behaviorists have assumed that all important learning objectives can be specified and measured completely, and some behaviorists have argued that teaching to tested objectives is synonymous with good instruction. Some cognitive psychologists have argued that the mechanisms for children's acquisition of knowledge are linked intimately with cognitive theory, and that assessment of knowledge acquisition must be integrated with the instructional process. The diagnostic approach and prior knowledge approach are considered as the main techniques of integrating teaching and testing. Proponents of CAT argue that it can integrate teaching and testing as it provides rapid feedback about performance. All three approaches identify the value and importance of linking instruction and testing. There is a 67-item list of references. (SLD)
