Education Study

A number of LWVBC members met January 25, 2017 at the Library to discuss the State League's Study of High-stakes testing in Indiana schools.  There are several comments in this document referring to formative vs summative tests.  The definitions are:

Formative tests – The goal of formative assessment, including diagnostic testing, is to allow modification of teaching and learning activities to improve student achievement. This is the method often used by teachers throughout the school year, but can also be used in standardized tests.

Summative tests - The goal of summative assessment is to evaluate student learning at the end of an instructional unit by comparing it against some standard or benchmark.

Take the Survey!

What do Brown Countians think about local issues and challenges?  

This year, the League of Women Votes of Brown County decided to use our table at the County Fair to engage passers-by with a new outreach initiative.  We asked folks to fill out a short anonymous survey about Brown County issues.  Not everyone was interested, but 161 kind residents agreed to give us their input -- and we did ask that only county residents participate.  While 161 is not a large enough sample for firm conclusions, the variety of people passing by our booth and filling out the survey was significant and we thought it was worth publishing some of the data, comments and concerns.   Several of the questions are open-ended, with no particular answers suggested.  Note that not everyone answered every question, and some respondents touched on more than one topic in their comments.


Email your survey to: jmbwinn@hotmail.com
Deadline is September 18, 2017
The League appreciates you taking the survey!
