The development of the toolkit for assessment of subject competences of primary school students

The presentation describes the toolkit for assessment of subject competences of primary school students that is being developed by the group of the Russian specialists under the leadership of P. ,Nezhnov and B. Elconin. This work was influenced by the international comparative monitoring studies (especially PISA) and represents the next logical step on the way to the new understanding of educational goals.The purpose of the toolkit is to assess primary school students’, mathematics, science and reading literacy. The assessment model is based on the Vygotsky theory and is aimed to evaluate examinees on three basic levels of formation of each type of literacy: formal, reflexive and functional. The toolkit consists of subject tests and context questionnaires. Test items are designed for each unit of school curriculum in accordance with the above levels. Questionnaires include items aimed at the analysis of teaching conditions and characteristics of educational process. In order to validate the toolkit, IRT modeling is applied (both unidimensional and multidimensional models). It provides an opportunity to build a bank of reliable and valid items. Complementary scaling models based on IRT are employed for evaluation of each examinee on the above levels and building his profile. The assessment of student achievement based on three indicators ,gives an opportunity to assure a new interpretation of educational process and its outcomes.
