Feedback at the System Level: Benchmarking U.S. Education Performance

This analysis examines the performance of the U.S. K–12 education system over time, in comparison to other nations, and at different levels of organizational structure: states, school districts, and schools. It also reviews performance in terms of four societal outcomes: effectiveness, equity, efficiency, and participation.

Improving Educational Outcomes in America: Can A Low-Tech, Generic Teaching Practice Make A Difference

It is generally agreed that what teachers do in classrooms will have the greatest impact on learning; however, there is little agreement about what should be done. Heward and Wood consider a range of instructional practices that were identified by participants of the eighth Wing Institute summit and make an argument that Active Student Responding (ASR) has the potential to significantly improve student learning. The further make the case that ASR is a low cost, effective alternative to many of the instructional practices, such as computer assisted instruction, that are often proposed by educational reformers. The authors consider ASR in the context of the positive benefits and the cost considerations including equipment/materials, training, logistical fit, and the fit with the teacher's belief about effective instruction.
