Subject: Digital Assessments: article w/ internal links

Digital Assessments

Assessment is quickly becoming the new black. It's one of the themes of
the
Secretary of Education's
<http://www.ed.gov/about/bdscomm/list/hiedfuture/index.html> Commission
on
the Future of Higher Education. More and more institutions, some prodded
by
accreditors, are looking for rigorous ways - often online - to compile
course data.

Now  <http://www.blackboard.com/us/index.aspx> Blackboard, a leading
provider of course management software, is making plans to enter the
assessment field.

Subject: Study Skills Workshops - request for research

I have been working with our study skills workshop series for several
years
now and although we have been able to increase attendance and
participation
and gather positive feedback from student participants, I question
whether
the workshop is an effective tool for promoting good study skills.
 
Can anyone direct me to any research that may provide support (or lack
of
support) for the impact of the workshop on improving study skills or any
other positive effects on student performance?

Subject: Re: Study Skills Workshops - request for research

Hi, Carol:

In his book "What Works: [...]," Hunter Boyland cites several studies as
he discusses Learning Strategies in the chapter on "Instructional
Practices."  I must confess not to have reviewed the citation, so I
can't tell you if they are quantitative or qualitative. Also, these
particular sources are at least five years old, yet a search by author
may yield more current research. Also, the text reviews best practices
in developmental education, which may or may not suit your needs.

Additionally, I've found Flippo and Caverly's "Handbook of College
Reading and Study Strategy Research" to be very useful in jumpstarting a
review of research/literature. Recently, Frank Christ mentioned that
they might be offering a new edition soon; I've been using the 2000
edition.

We are also interested in keeping current with this topic. Finding
quantitative research is often elusive.

Subject: Re: Study Skills Workshops - request for research

Hi Carol,

One thing that I do for my learning skills workshops is to advertise
college level skills for learning and emphasize that high school
level study skills are not enough to do well in college. So many of my
students earned good gpa's in high school by looking over testable
material once or twice the night before a test and they would get A's
and B's. You know how well that high school level study skill works in
college! Advertising workshops on college level skills for learning
seems to get more students to attend. Feel free to look at our web site
and download any handouts you feel will benefit your students:
http://www.sarc.sdes.ucf.edu/studyhandouts.html. Let me know if you have
any questions. 

The study skill that seems to earn the highest grades in the least
amount of time here is self-testing. It helps students avoid going into
a test thinking, feeling, asuming, hoping, or believing they know the
material and not finding out for sure until they get the test grade back
when they can't do anything about that grade then. This is a good way to
feel helpless for freshmen, especially.


Best wishes..................................

Dennis

Subject: Study Skills Workshops - request for research

Hi Carol,
If you are looking for research, not too long ago the Learning
Assistance Review Journal had a very good study that
indicated GPA is not a good measure of Learning Strategies Programs, but
that other factors did improve such as efficacy and self-regulation -
sorry I cannot find it right now so I don't know the author.
=20
We are less concerned about the number of attendees and more concerned
with motivation underlying attending - are they looking for a quick fix
or do they realize that they likely need to find new and better ways to
work.

We us the GPN series, as well.  I, like Lynell, tried to get the DVD
version a few years ago, but was told by the company that these are
unavailable.

I augment this series by "The Power of Peer Instruction" produced by
Muhlenberg College and the one-hour video and workbook entitled "A
Tutor's Workshop: Student with Learning Disabilities," also produced by
GPN.

Robin,
If it was me, and I've used both the GPN and UNC Tapes, I'd blend my
training with SI materials from UMKC and UNC. 

I thought the GPN tapes more suited for individual tutoring techniques.

Thanks, Lynell.  I actually thought the NCSU tapes were a bit dated as
well.
The information is good as far as the modules are concerned.  I would
like to see more tutoring demonstrations, though, and less voiceover.
Something
similar to the SI Leader training videos.

Thanks again for your suggestion!  I'll look into the UCLA resources.

I've also used parts of the "Tutor's Guide" series filmed at UCLA and
distributed by GPN. It's older than the NCSU series, so the hairstyles
and clothing are dated (80s), but I like the information. However, when
I recently looked for it on the web to see if I could get it on DVD, I
had no success locating it at GPN's site.

We us the GPN series, as well.  I, like Lynell, tried to get the DVD
version a few years ago, but was told by the company that these are
unavailable.

I augment this series by "The Power of Peer Instruction" produced by
Muhlenberg College and the one-hour video and workbook entitled "A
Tutor's Workshop: Student with Learning Disabilities," also produced by
GPN.

Robin,
If it was me, and I've used both the GPN and UNC Tapes, I'd blend my
training with SI materials from UMKC and UNC. 

I thought the GPN tapes more suited for individual tutoring techniques.

Thanks, Lynell.  I actually thought the NCSU tapes were a bit dated as
well.
The information is good as far as the modules are concerned.  I would
like to see more tutoring demonstrations, though, and less voiceover.
Something
similar to the SI Leader training videos.

Thanks again for your suggestion!  I'll look into the UCLA resources.

I've also used parts of the "Tutor's Guide" series filmed at UCLA and
distributed by GPN. It's older than the NCSU series, so the hairstyles
and clothing are dated (80s), but I like the information. However, when
I recently looked for it on the web to see if I could get it on DVD, I
had no success locating it at GPN's site.
