Education as well as assessment—especially assessment in education—is what this is all about. Here I allow my University of Amsterdam publications a second life and my new projects their first, by making them available online.
Publications on topics such as achievement testing, admissions, especially admissions using lottery procedures, education and the labor market, as well as a list ordering them alle by date. The sitemap offers a short cut to all documents.
Some big and many small projects in progress.
The one very, very big project (it is in English) is SPA Strategic Preparation for Achievement Testing, originally the Van Naerssen tentamenmodel, is now—as far as its progress allows—available to visitors of the website as JAVA-applets, small applications that will run in the browser you are using (try this one). The other big one is the revision of the 1983 Dutch book on item writing, now christened Item design html; each chapter will be given an appendix in English with lots of examples as well as literature. Eventually (hopefully) the English appendices will evolve into an English book.
In 2011 my attention has been directed to the severe problems in arithmetics in primary and secondary education in the Netherlands: see the rekenproject.htm start page. This project is in Dutch, because some activities and publications focus on themes and problems related tot political decision making at the national level. I am sorry. If you happe to be interested in this project, contact me, and i will prepare specific summaries in English.
