Technology and Assessment: Thinking Ahead. Proceedings from a Workshop (Washington, DC, November 14, 2001).
National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Board on Testing and Assessment.
Papers in this collection were commissioned for a workshop designed to share advances in the cognitive sciences and methods of measurement and their implications for improving educational assessment. A second goal of the workshop was to delve into the role that technology could play in bringing these advances together. The papers are: (1) Unmasking Constructs through New Technology, Measurement Theory, and Cognitive Science (Drew H. Gitmoer and Randy Elliott Bennett); (2) Technology Supports for Assessing Science Inquiry (Barbara Means and Geneva Haertel); (3) Is It Worth It? Some Comments on Research and Technology in Assessment and Instruction (J. D. Fletcher); (4) Speech Recognition Technology and the Assessment of Beginning Readers (Susan M. Williams); (5) Cognitive Tutor Algebra I: Adaptive Student Modeling in Widespread Classroom Use (Albert Corbett); (6) How Computer-Based Technology Can Disrupt the Technology of Testing and Assessment (Michael Russell); and (7) Design of Automated Authoring Systems for Tests (Eva L. Baker). One appendix contains the workshop agenda, and the other lists members of the Board on Testing and Assessment. Each paper contains references. (Contains 15 figures and 4 tables.) (SLD)
