More Useful Measurement of Mathematics Learning in K-12

Measuring student progress in mathematics is harder than one might think. In order to make teaching act upon particular students’ difficulties, it is not sufficient to establish comparisons with a class evolution as it is not sufficient to establish simple and fixed metrics to accompany a curriculum evolution. Frequent formative assessment is key to constantly monitor, fine-tune, establish progressive and adaptive mastery measures and so help students’ understanding of math concepts and procedures. New research on measurement learning in mathematics gives hope that simple 2-minute class with well-chosen questions and practices may accelerate mastery of concepts and procedures.

The COVID-19 slide in education: new data on learning loss

The COVID-19 slide in education: new data on learning loss

COVID-19 led to school closures throughout Europe. Early evidence is showing that the pandemic is resulting in learning losses. At its peak, the pandemic led countries in the region to close their schools. Given the abruptness of the situation, teachers and administrations were unprepared for this transition and were forced to build emergency remote learning systems. To reduce and reverse the long-term negative effects, countries need to implement learning recovery programs, protect educational budgets, and prepare for future shocks by building back better. However, we need to assess learning losses from more countries.

In education, those with prior knowledge often reap the benefits

In education, those with prior knowledge often reap the benefits

Answering questions and receiving feedback can help students learn, but are these tactics equally helpful for all students? Students with higher prior knowledge in a given field might benefit more from such approach than students with lower prior knowledge. Students’ curiosity, rather than their ability to learn, appears to be a key factor to understand why students with more knowledge within a domain can learn better than those with lower prior knowledge. We still don’t know which attribute came first: was this curiosity sparked by the students’ prior knowledge, or was this curiosity the reason why they acquired their prior knowledge in the first place? Notwithstanding, the benefits of providing students with a solid base of knowledge to be used afterwards appears undeniable.

The mirage of a meta-analysis on the positive effects of mobile devices

The use of evidence is a growing theme in educational discourse. One type of review of the scientific literature that is strongly associated with it is the meta-analysis. Meta-analysis combines results from a variety of research studies on the same topic into a single study in order to identify a central trend expressed as an effect size. However, meta-analysis is dependent on the quality and quantity of the research that is selected.
