Sites on the Web
Advantage Learning Systems
Advanced Learning Systems provides teachers with sample forms of programs useful in mastery monitoring.
Software which helps teachers develop web and network ready forms useful in developing systems for measuring academic progress.
Early Childhood Research Institute on Measuring Growth and Development
These sites provide teachers, parents, and other professionals with information on critical developmental markers for children from birth to eight. This information is critical for helping teachers develop curriculum-based measurement systems in primary grades.
National Council for Teachers of Mathematics
Many state-wide outcome measures for math use the standards and benchmarks designed and supported by the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics. This web-site provides teachers with specific outcome standards for students by grade-level.
National Council for Teachers of English
NCTE, the professional organization for teachers of English and literacy, provides a link to standards their organization developed that serve as useful benchmarks for developing goals for general outcome measurement.
Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning
Many, if not all, states develop their own standards and benchmarks which they ultimately use for outcome assessment. MCREL has compiled information from state and national sources into a compendium of standards and benchmarks by academic content area and grade level.
Center for Research on the Education of Students at Risk
The article on this website provides students with an overview of cooperative learning which includes class-wide peer tutoring. Written by Dr. Robert Slavin of Johns Hopkins University, the article provides the theoretical and practical framework for introducing class-wide peer tutoring. The lesson text provides an example of a software program that measures the effectiveness of the class-wide peer tutoring programs.
ERIC provides teachers with a wide array of full text documents online. This article by Lynn Fuchs compares behavioral assessment, mastery learning, curriculum-based learning, and performance assessment.
