COMMUNITY-LEGITIMATED e-TESTING - A Basis for a Novel, Self-Organized and Sustainable (e)Learning Culture?

Fritz Nestle, Nikolaus Nestle

Abstract

Based on the assumption that educational standards can be operationally defined by pools of specific testing items properties of such item pools are discussed. The main suggestion of the paper is that pools of testing items defining a standard should be free accessible in internet, that they provide immediate feedback in form of scores and that certified results should be equivalent to results of classroom work. For the development of the item pools, web-2.0-type methods can be much more effective than closed expert groups and item evaluation by statistic methods.. Finally the consequences of such transparent community-legitimated standards for the future role of teachers and future forms of learning environments are discussed.
