Hobe presents at national conference

John Hobe, Ed.D.


John Hobe, Ed.D., professor and chair of the Department of Elementary and Special Education, presented at the 2018 National Youth-at-Risk Conference held in Savannah. Hobe’s presentation, “Why Use Norm-Referenced Standardized Tests to Answer: Did I Teach? Did they Learn?,” questioned school practices versus state and federal laws protecting students in public schools. He focused on two possibilities: (1) Norm-referenced standardized tests (NRSTs) may fail to explain accurately student competence and (2) the Instructional Alignment construct, which explains if we align instruction and assessment conditions, our assessment will accurately explain if we taught and if the students learned.
