Give me the data!!! On transparency and openness of educational assessmen in the big data era

The Data Era led to a dramatic status change in all human societies: Almost all professional data is now accessible to almost anyone. The dramatic changes in the relationships between professionals and the public are generating conflicts. Many of them derive from confusion between the terms: DATA, INFORNATION and KNOWLEDGE. One more source of confusion is the public',s misconception of professionalism. On the other hand, it is extremely important to acknowledge the public',s right to know: the demand for data, information and knowledge is valid and just. This contradiction emerges in many scenes of collision between public and professionals (to name some: M.D',s, politicians, teachers…,), but it seems that in the field of measurement and assessment, this collision is worsen by the fact that professionals of this school are few, but their actions dramatically effects public life. The good news are that bridging over this gap is possible, by building open and transparent frameworks for testing, measurement and assessment. Participatory Measurement can take measurement up to the next level, and adjust the profession to the 21st century.KEY WORDS: PARTICIPATIONARY SCORE REPORTING, POLICY PLANNING, BIG DATA, OPEN DATA, TRANSPARENCY, PARTICIPATORY MEASUREMENT, CHANGE
