Abstract:
To identify talent and foster success across society, assessment science and practice along with predictive analytics will need to become drivers for change. This session will focus on the current gap between standardized assessments and the need to educate and measure for 21st century skills of creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration, from early childhood through formal education and beyond. It will explore the power of data of all sorts - data exhaust and predictive analytics as well as educational testing - to reveal new pathways for people to develop these skills, and access work in a transforming labor market. Particular attention needs to go to marginalized groups at risk of exclusion across generations. This session will specifically address the growing demand for interdisciplinary practice and education, which depends on a mix of divergent and convergent thinking at the heart of creativity.
