Educational Testing Service Launches the Version of its Criterion Online Writing Evaluation Service
Feb 10 14
Educational Testing Service has launched the version of its Criterion Online Writing Evaluation Service. The Criterion service is a web-based instructional tool that helps elementary, secondary and college-level students plan, write and revise essays. In addition to the Criterion service's enhanced ability to provide immediate scoring and feedback on an essay's grammar, spelling, word usage, mechanics, organization and development, the new version also allows for the creation of customizable student and group reports. These reports allow teachers and administrators to analyze student performance at the district level, highlight where teacher training is needed and determine if adjustments need to be made in a teacher's curriculum. Some of the Criterion service's other new and improved features include a topic library that allows instructors to choose from over 570 essay assignments at different skill levels, compatibility across multiple platforms including a number of tablets, and a new Peer Review Tool that allows students to work together and comment on each other's work.
Educational Testing Service Introduces New Electronic Badges for Student Learning Outcome Assessments
Feb 5 14
Educational Testing Service announced that it is now offering electronic badges for students who demonstrate specific learning outcomes on the ETS(R) Proficiency Profile and iSkills(TM) assessments--and these badges can be added to a Mozilla Backpack to help test takers manage and share their accomplishments with an unlimited number of recipients in academia and beyond. Performance-level electronic badges are now available to test takers of both the ETS Proficiency Profile online standard form and the iSkills assessment. Students taking the ETS Proficiency Profile online standard form can earn an electronic badge based on their performance in all four skill areas: mathematics, writing, reading and critical thinking. Badges come in three performance levels that are awarded based on score range. Students taking the iSkills assessment can also earn an electronic badge based on their performance in the various task areas defined by the ICT Literacy Framework. Mozilla Open Badges are online representations of skills earned, allowing individuals to verify their skills, interests and achievements through credible organizations. Those earning open badges can display them online, and share them for employment, education or lifelong learning.
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Selects Educational Testing Service to Administer the New High School Equivalency Exam in Massachusetts
Jan 2 14
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education announced that it has selected Educational Testing Service (ETS) to administer the new high school equivalency exam in Massachusetts. This series of exams will replace the former General Education Development (GED) assessment, which is no longer offered by the GED Testing Service as of December 31, 2013. The new exam, called HiSET, will continue to measure whether adult learners and out-of-school youth qualify for the Massachusetts High School Equivalency Certificate, a pivotal step for adult learners who do not possess a high school diploma, but require a certified education credential. HiSET will measure the academic knowledge and proficiency equivalent to those of a high school graduate. HiSET will be available to Massachusetts adult learners beginning in late January or early February and will include assessments in Language Arts - Reading, Language Arts - Writing, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. Over the next three years, HiSET will become fully aligned to new college and career readiness standards for adult learners.
