Break Out Plus 1.10
Knowledge and Judgment Scoring for student development.
Knowledge and Judgment Scoring trains students to learn and report what they know using higher levels of thinking. Break out of the old habit of only counting the right marks on multiple-choice tests. Promote quantity and quality. A score and question difficulty matrix provides detailed information for student counseling. A tally analysis labels questions as Expected, Student Discriminating, Guessing, and Misconception. Answer sheets are checked for independent marking (cheating).
Break Out Plus turns passive pupils into active self-correcting learners. Student development is promoted. Students acquire the sense of responsibility needed to learn at higher levels of thinking. Their quality score tells them and the teacher what they can trust as a basis for further learning and instruction.
Individual students and/or teachers can elect either traditional right-mark scoring or Knowledge and Judgment Scoring. This makes for a low stress transition from one scoring method to the other. Students overwhelmingly prefer Knowledge and Judgment Scoring after some experience and when judgment is given an honest value. A suggested value for omit (the good judgment to not mark a wrong answer) is calculated for each test.
