Due to the high school connection reform, the amount of information contained in the survey report has increased since the 2021 entrance examination.Although the burden on the high school field has become heavier, I don't know the story that the entrance examination for the first year of reform was completed and the evaluation was more multifaceted than before.Meanwhile, on July 7, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology issued a notice * including changes to the survey form for the entrance examination for the 30th year of Reiwa (7).This notification name is so long that I'll call it a notification below, but the high school scene has to deal with it again.The university that receives the survey will also need to be aware of the changes.

* Regarding "Notice of the Common Test for University Admissions for Reiwa XNUMXth Year Selection" and "Notice of Review of the Guidelines for the Selection of University Admissions for the XNUMXth Year of Reiwa" (Notice)



The description of the evaluation by viewpoint is put on hold for the time being

In the next course of study, there are various changes in subjects and subjects from the present.In high school, there is no shortage of topics such as history synthesis, geography synthesis, and new subjects such as public and information I, but one of the points is the introduction of perspective-based evaluations that have been conducted in elementary and junior high schools.When we hear the word "evaluation by viewpoint", discourses such as counting the number of hands raised and evaluating it are prevailing, but such an evaluation method is clearly denied.In the Central Council for Education Elementary and Secondary Education Subcommittee Education Course Subcommittee "About the Ideal Way of Learning Evaluation of Children (Report)" (January 2019, 1), "How many hands are raised and whether or not you take notes every hour, etc." The misunderstanding that it is an evaluation that captures a scene where personality and behavioral tendencies are temporarily expressed has not been completely dispelled. "I've heard that such misunderstandings are still deeply rooted in school settings, but in addition to the introduction of this perspective-based evaluation in high schools, the perspectives of each subject and subject are included in the guidance record that is the basis of the survey. There will be a column to describe the status of separate learning, and the treatment in the survey report has attracted attention.However, for the time being, it will not be included in the survey report.

Regarding this, in the notification, "As soon as the conditions are met, as soon as the conditions are met, we will check the status of the enhancement of the evaluation of the learning situation by viewpoint in the future high school and the progress of the examination of the utilization method of the learning situation by the viewpoint in the university. We aim to include items in the survey report. "Actually, there is a concern that the selection of new students will be utilized in a way that does not meet the purpose of multifaceted and comprehensive evaluation, such as extracting only the evaluation results from a specific viewpoint, such as simply scoring the evaluation results. It is presumed that it was done.It seems that the utilization method of such evaluation is related to the digitization of survey reports that facilitates the processing of large amounts of data, but such utilization is not possible at universities where many examinees want to enroll. Probably not, so I think it will end in a melancholy.
