THE STUDENT’S CENTERED LEARNING STRATEGIES AND THE EFFECTIVE ASSESSMENT OF THE SKILLS

E. Pires

University of Aveiro (PORTUGAL)
The learning environment directed to strategies based in projects and student’s centered, present different challenges to the student’s skills development, as well questions concerning aspects of the classes development and strategies implemented. The implementation may be very demanding and may present several issues. One important factor concerns the assessment of the skills developed.

A rigorous implementation of this strategies assumes a development of important skills, like 21st-century skills. Including digital competencies and other technological features. This presents challenges to assessment and requires accuracy and well based assessment methods.

Some questions arise like: How to assess the skills and which skills? Can or should this assessment be provided as a precise feedback or is more appropriate a grade? How to have a perception of the effect of the time and effort of a proposed learning strategy? And how to have a sense of the effectiveness of the strategy implementation?

Based on the literature and examples, and the features that characterize a project-based learning strategy, here is proposed to present an approach to the definition of the skills expected for the students, today, differentiating it from the competencies, and the tools or techniques we may dispose to assess the skills in a way to provide an effective and motivated implementation. This assessment can present different forms or methods, like standards tests of creativity or critical thinking, rubrics including definitions and scales or e-portfolios. The way to address this factors by the schools and to promote this learning strategies in a way to develop the student’s skills and competencies and prepare them to the present and future challenges are important and demand a different approach from the standard grade papers.
