ACASEThe Association for the Cooperative Advancement of Science and Educationis a group of scientists and teachers who develop systematic ways to make the experience of students deeper and more creative, and to reignite the spark that inspired many teachers to take on the challenges of the classroom.
Today's teachers and students face a number of oppressive problems:
We have been working with creative teachers and scientists for over a decade to build concepts and technologies that will allow educators to accurately monitor student progress in attaining important education goals and objectives. This, we believe, will lead to a positive and sustainable impact on the problems listed above. Our research (Zachos, Hick, Doane, & Sargent 2000) indicates that by secondary school age, young people are ready to discover natural laws through direct investigations into phenomena.
At present ACASE's attention is directed to the following broad educational goals.
ACASE develops innovative modes of educational assessment with the explicit goal of using data generated by these assessments to support instructional decision-making. Our web-based tools provide an information management system that allows educators to grasp and take action to support the growth of student learning over time.
Associates of ACASE meet to work on ongoing projects and long-term initiatives, make public presentations, and discuss matters of public interest in science and education.
