New Accountability: A New Social Compact for American ...

"Our current systems of accountability are not effectively driving improvement in our schools; neither are they a force for equity. In fact, there are very real instances of the current punishment model of accountability hurting kids, teachers and schools

To replace the current test-and-punish approach to educational accountability, we are advocating for a paradigm shift. We must move forward on developing support-and-improve models that are based on meaningful learning, professional capacity, and equitable and adequate resources. To this end, a document of principles has been created by a broad-based group of organizations fighting for change for our nation’s children."

Jean Piaget's Stages of Cognitive Development


"Jean Piaget’s prominent work is his theory on the four stages of cognitive development. He was one of the most influential researchers in the area of developmental psychology in the 20th century whose primary interest was in biological influences on how we come to know, and the developmental stages we move through as we acquire this ability (Singer & Revenson, 1997, p. 13).

Piaget (1973) believed that the child plays an active role in the growth of intelligence and learns by doing. He regarded the child as a philosopher who perceives the world only as he has experienced it.


The theory of cognitive development focuses on mental processes such as perceiving, remembering, believing, and reasoning. Reasoning is the essence of intelligence, and reasoning is what Piaget studied in order to discover “how we come to know” (Singer & Revenson, 1997, p. 13). Piaget believed that cognitive development is cumulative; that is, understanding a new experience grows out of a previous learning experience."

http://tips.uark.edu/using-blooms-taxonomy/

"Bloom's taxonomy refers to a classification of the different objectives that educators set for students (learning objectives). It divid​es educational objectives into three "domains":cognitive, affective, and psychomotor (sometimes loosely described as "knowing/head", "feeling/heart" and "doing/hands" respectively). Within the domains, learning at the higher levels is dependent on having attained prerequisite knowledge and skills at lower levels.[2] A goal of Bloom's taxonomy is to motivate educators to focus on all three domains, creating a more holistic form of education.[1]"
