Class Notes
Assessment and Content Complexity: Meeting the Challenges of Today
Content complexity received attention over 50 years ago with the release of the Bloom’s Taxonomy of the Cognitive Domain. With more attention given to cognitive psychology, a taxonomical approach to describing levels of complexity raises questions. Depth-of-Knowledge is a language system developed through a curriculum approach that assumes multiple factors contribute to what is complex including content area attributes rather than only the verb or action. A historical prospective of content complexity will be provided followed by a detailed description of the Depth-of-Knowledge (DOK) system. The difference between content difficulty and complexity will be discussed along with application to analyzing assessment items. Examples from the Georgia Standards of Excellence will be used to illustrate how the DOK system can be used to analyze both curriculum expectations and assessments. The talk will conclude with a discussion of how content complexity plays a critical role in analyzing the alignment between curriculum standards and assessments and applications to instruction.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CANCELLATION POLICY BEFORE YOU REGISTER!

Metro RESA makes every effort to provide high quality professional learning experiences at low costs to teachers in the Metro Atlanta area. Because we often have to pay instructors, rental fees for locations, and for materials, we must make decisions at least two weeks in advance about cancellation of classes when we do not have enough registrants.

Therefore, our cancellation/no show policy is as follows:

  • If you choose PERSONAL PAY as your payment method: You must use a credit card to complete your registration for all classes with Metro RESA.  We will happily issue a refund for any class as long as you notify us that you need to cancel AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE DATE OF THE CLASS.  You will be refunded via the same method of payment within two business weeks.
  • If you choose SCHOOL PAY as your payment method: Your school will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.  
  • If you choose DISTRICT PAY as your payment method: Your district will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.

THIS POLICY APPLIES TO ALL METRO RESA CLASSES EXCEPT GEORGIA TAPP, ALTERNATIVE CERTIFICATION CLASSES AND ANY TRIPS.

Refunds and reimbursements are not transferable to other classes. Refunds for cancellations (if the participant cancels at least two weeks prior to class OR if Metro RESA cancels the class) will be processed within two business weeks of the date of the course.
