Оценка качества образования в начальной школе (на основе инструмента SAM)
By the end of primary school children acquire all the basic literacy and numeracy skills, but proficiency level of these skills varies greatly among children. SAM (Student's Achievement Monitoring) allows us to define the students’ proficiency level accurately. This article gives a brief overview of the toolkit, and describes the results of testing in one region of the Russian Federation. It also investigates the characteristics of the educational environment, which may be associated with the students’ test results.

The distractive effects on attentional task performance in different paradigms are analyzed in this paper. I demonstrate how distractors may negatively affect (interference effect), positively (redundancy effect) or neutrally (null effect). Distractor effects described in literature are classified in accordance with their hypothetical source. The general rule of the theory is also introduced. It contains the formal prediction of the particular distractor effect, based on entropy and redundancy measures from the mathematical theory of communication (Shannon, 1948). Single- vs dual-process frameworks are considered for hypothetical mechanisms which underpin the distractor effects. Distractor profiles (DPs) are also introduced for the formalization and simple visualization of experimental data concerning the distractor effects. Typical shapes of DPs and their interpretations are discussed with examples from three frequently cited experiments. Finally, the paper introduces hierarchical hypothesis that states the level-fashion modulating interrelations between distractor effects of different classes.
