Reflecting on Authentic Assessment and School Reform   http://www.tcrecord.org/Content.asp?ContentID=9631  Site Reviews(0)
In its lead article, the winter 1994 issue of the ERIC Review noted that much attention lately has been focused on alternatives to multiple-choice standardized tests or what has variously been called authentic, alternative, or performance assessment: Federal commissions have endorsed performance assessment. It's been discussed on C-SPAN, and in a number of books and articles. Full issues of major education journals, including Educational Leadership (April 1989 and May 1992) and Phi Delta Kappan (February 1993) have been devoted to performance assessment. A surprisingly large number of organizations are actively involved in developing components of a performance assessment system. (Rudner & Boston, 1994, p. 2)

Research on Retention and Attribution   http://www.millenniumscholarships.ca/en/research/retention_final.pdf  Site Reviews(0)
This report is concerned with: • Knowing the different theoretical perspectives that can be brought to bear on the issue of attrition. • Knowing when students are likely to leave post-secondary education and if they return. • Identifying which students are most likely to leave post-secondary education and what they have in common. • Identifying the most effective strategies available to prevent students from abandoning their studies. The report focuses on these and other important post-secondary attrition issues; however, because of overlap among these concerns, rather than taking each and dealing with it separately, these concerns guide discussion in various sections of the report. A brief synthesis of findings relevant to each area of concern is provided in the Conclusion. Unfortunately, while there is a great deal of research on attrition in the United

The Role of Guidance in Postsecondary Plann ing   http://www.millenniumscholarships.ca/en/research/guidance_en.pdf  Site Reviews(0)
The Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation’s mandate is to create opportunities for Canadians to pursue their post-secondary education. This mandate is manifested in the Foundation’s three major programs. The first mechanism is the Millennium ursary Program, which provides approximately $285 million each year in need-based assistance to students who have successfully completed at least 60 per cent of a year of post-secondary education. The second is the Millennium Excellence Award program, which recognizes and rewards students beginning post-secondary studies who have demonstrated a combination of academic achievement, community service, capacity for leadership and interest in innovation. The third mechanism is the Millennium Research Program, which is based on the theme of access to postsecondary education. For the Millennium Bursary Program to be successful, it must reach students already in postsecondary studies and in financial need, as well as those in high school who are making ostsecondary plans, for whom future financing is a deciding factor. For the millennium excellence awards to achieve their purpose, the program has to be well known in schools and at the community level so that a broad base of potential recipients self-identify or are identified and encouraged to apply each year.

Carl Rogers and Experiential Learning   http://adulted.about.com/cs/adultlearningthe/a/carl_rogers.htm  Site Reviews(0)
Carl Rogers is best known as an American psychologist and the founder of 'client-centered' or 'non-directed' psychotherapy, a widely influential, humanistic approach. Rogers also made significant contributions to the field of adult education, with his experiential theory of learning. Rogers maintained that all human beings have a natural desire to learn. He defined two categories of learning: meaningless, or cognitive learning (e.g., memorizing multiplication tables) and significant, or experiential (applied knowledge which addresses the needs and wants of the learner, eg., performing first aid on one's child). According to Rogers, the role of the teacher is to facilitate experiential learning by: 1. setting a positive climate for learning 2. clarifying the purposes of the learner(s) 3. organizing and making available learning resources 4. balancing intellectual and emotional components of learning and 5. sharing feelings and thoughts with learners but not dominating. As for the personal growth and development of the student, Rogers suggests that: 1. Significant learning takes place when the subject matter is relevant to the personal interests of the student. 2. Learning which is threatening to the self (e.g., new attitudes or perspectives) are more easily assimilated when external threats are at a minimum. 3. Learning proceeds faster when the threat to the self is low. 4. Self-initiated learning is the most lasting and pervasive.

Reinventing Undergraduate University   http://naples.cc.sunysb.edu/Pres/boyer.nsf  Site Reviews(0)
In a great many ways the higher education system of the United States is the most remarkable in the world. The speed with which it developed, its record of achievement, the extent of its reach, the range of its offerings are without parallel. And, particularly in the years since World War II, the system has reached a higher proportion of the national population than that of any other country. Half of the high school graduates in the United States now gain some experience in colleges and universities; we are, as a country, attempting to create an educated population on a scale never known before. The goal of President Harry Truman’s 1947 Commission on Higher Education, that the system must provide “the means by which every citizen, youth, and adult, is enabled and encouraged to carry his education, formal and informal, as far as his native capacities permit” is accepted as axiomatic. In the higher education system in the United States, the research universities have played a leading role: the country’s 125 research universities make up only 3 per cent of the total number of institutions of higher learning, yet they confer 32 per cent of the baccalaureate degrees, and 56 per cent of the baccalaureates earned by recent recipients of science and engineering doctorates (1991-95). Their graduates fill the legislatures and board rooms of the country, write the books we read, treat our ailments, litigate our issues, develop our new technologies, and provide our entertainment. To an overwhelming degree, they have furnished the cultural, intellectual, economic, and political leadership of the nation.

An institutional repository (IR) is a digital collection of an institution's intellectual output. IRs are a key infrastructure component in the digital environment because they provide better access to our digital assets and they ensure that digital objects are managed appropriately. Since 2003, the Canadian Association of Research Libraries has been promoting the use of institutional repositories in Canada through the CARL Institutional Repositories Program. As a result, nearly 100% of CARL members have implemented an IR at their institution.

The Directory of Open Access Repositories - OpenDOAR   http://www.opendoar.org/  Site Reviews(0)
As well as providing a simple repository list, OpenDOAR lets you search for repositories or search repository contents. Additionally, we provide tools and support to both repository administrators and service providers in sharing best practice and improving the quality of the repository infrastructure. Further explanation of these features is given in a project document Beyond the list. The current directory lists repositories and allows breakdown and selection by a variety of criteria - see the Find page - which can also be viewed as statistical charts. The underlying database has been designed from the ground up to include in-depth information on each repository that can be used for search, analysis, or underpinning services like text-mining. The OpenDOAR service is being developed incrementally, developing the current service as new features are introduced. A list of Upgrades and Additions is available. Developments will be of use both to users wishing to find original research papers and for service providers like search engines or alert services which need easy-to-use tools for developing tailored search services to suit specific user communities.
