Abstract:

The proposed research builds upon the work on the Childrens Progress Academic Assessment a computer dynamic assessment in language arts and mathematics for children in prekindergarten through second grade. The goal of this project is to develop new assessment technologies that will allow for real-time error analysis of childrens responses that will compliment the CPAA. The error analysis will target errors associated with the childs understanding of the content as well idiosyncratic differences in the childs manner of responding. The assessment will provide targeted online tutorials that are designed to address particular patterns of errors discovered through the assessment. The online activities will be designed to be used by children either at home with parents or in the classroom under the supervision of the teacher. Additionally the project will deliver a video report for parents that will provide a virtual simulation of the childs performance on each screen of the assessment. This project will partner Childrens Progress with professors from Columbia University and Brooklyn College.
