We didn't do any Walt Disney though.

And out of a classroom as well. It was a much repeated theme in the OU degree that I finished about 5 years ago.


As I said, I heard about it over a decade ago.

I started the degree about 6 years before that (doing it alongside a job) and they were using that approach from the start, so that's at least 11 years, actually probably 12. :)

I didn't realise it was a competition :lol:

However, the serious answer is that it was based on the 'Black Box' research, for eaxample this published in 1999:

http://arrts.gtcni.org.uk/gtcni/bitstre ... %20Box.pdf

Which neatly refers toTim's challenge:

wunwinglow wrote:I look forward to the statistical analysis proving the point.


The evidence from research on a review of research on assessment and classroom learning, commissioned by the group authoring this paper and funded by The Nuffield Foundation, Professors Paul Black and Dylan Wiliam synthesised evidence from over 250 studies linking assessment and learning.

The outcome was a clear and incontrovertible message: that initiatives designed to enhance effectiveness of the way assessment is used in the classroom to promote learning can raise pupil achievement. The scale of the effect would be the equivalent of between one and two grades at GCSE for an individual.

For England as a whole, Black and Wiliam estimate that its position in respect of mathematical attainment would have been raised in the recent Third International Mathematics and Science Study from the middle of the 41 countries involved to being one of the top five. They also found evidence that the gain was likely to be even more substantial for lower-achieving pupils.

The research indicates that improving learning through assessment depends on five, deceptively simple, key factors:
• the provision of effective feedback to pupils;
the active involvement of pupils in their own learning;
• adjusting teaching to take account of the results of assessment;
• a recognition of the profound influence assessment has on the motivation and self-esteem of pupils, both of which are crucial influences on learning;
• the need for pupils to be able to assess themselves and understand how to improve.

At the same time, several inhibiting factors were identified. Among these are:
• a tendency for teachers to assess quantity of work and presentation rather than the quality of learning;
• greater attention given to marking and grading, much of it tending to lower the self-esteem of pupils, rather than to providing advice for improvement;
• a strong emphasis on comparing pupils with each other which demoralises the less successful learners;
• teachers’ feedback to pupils often serves social and managerial purposes rather than helping them to learn more effectively;
• teachers not knowing enough about their pupils’ learning needs.

That's how your last reply came across (to me), hence the response. :)

No, just trying to emphasise that this - as you've taken even further - is nothing new or to be scared of :) Just good teaching.

But, hey-ho, I don't seem to realise when you're making jokes :-0 :oops: , so shall we call it quits? 8)

This is true. Note the number of views. I have been following the debate with interest, but I am not qualified to add anything to it.

Incidentally, am I not due some sort of lavish award for starting the longest thread? :)

You don't have to be qualified to ask questions. There have been so many occasions is this thread when I've thought: "Why doesn't someone ask about . . . " :-?

[quote="DucJohn Incidentally, am I not due some sort of lavish award for starting the longest thread? :)[/quote]

Yes, but start a new thread to ask for suggestions for a suitable honour :)

Now this I like. Condensed and simple ; straightforward to apply (not always the same as easy, but a good start ! ). ANd with some objective backup if you want to go look at it.

Heavens, we may have to start being clear with associates about what we're intending to achieve ! [gasps] :twisted:

Look, this is just a suggestion based on your comment about clarity, but if you start from the basis of 'what you're trying to acheive' (let's, for the sake of a better term, call it a 'Learning Intention') then find ways of knowing if you're successful, some sort of list or criteria, perhaps, then you might be on to something . . . :)

Does an on-road motorcycle coaching program reduce crashes in novice riders? A randomised control trial

Rebecca Q. Ivers
Chika Sakas
Teresa Senserrick
Jane Elkington
Serigne LoSoufiane Boufous
Liz de Rome

Highlights
On-road motorcycle coaching was not associated with reduced risk of crash.
Coaching was associated with reduced near misses after 3 but not 12 months.
Riders in the coaching group reported more confidence, speeding behaviours and riding time.

Abstract Objectives

Motorcycle riding is increasing globally and confers a high risk of crash-related injury and death. There is community demand for investment in rider training programs but no high-quality evidence about its effectiveness in preventing crashes. This randomised trial of an on-road rider coaching program aimed to determine its effectiveness in reducing crashes in novice motorcycle riders.
