Effective assessment in a digital age - 0 views

    • Jessica M
       
      "Assessment lies at the heart of the learning experience: how  learners are assessed shapes their understanding of the curriculum and determines their ability to progress."
    • Jessica M
       
      "The timing and management of assessments has also benefitted from the application of technology. "
    • Jessica M
       
      "'It would be better if… there were different ways of assessing, rather than  just all coursework and exams at the end… You do get quite enthusiastic  about the first one or two, but when it gets to the fourth one, it does become so mundane and so dull.'"

The Technology Source Archives - Seven Principles of Effective Teaching: A Practical Le... - 0 views

  • Learners should be required to participate (and their grade should depend on participation). Discussion groups should remain small. Discussions should be focused on a task. Tasks should always result in a product. Tasks should engage learners in the content. Learners should receive feedback on their discussions. Evaluation should be based on the quality of postings (and not the length or number). Instructors should post expectations for discussions.
  • Lesson for online instruction: Instructors need to provide two types of feedback: information feedback and acknowledgment feedback.
  • We found that instructors gave prompt information feedback at the beginning of the semester, but as the semester progressed and instructors became busier, the frequency of responses decreased, and the response time increased.

  • The rationale was that many students needed flexibility because of full-time jobs. However, regularly-distributed deadlines encourage students to spend time on tasks and help students with busy schedules avoid procrastination.
  • Lesson for online instruction: Challenging tasks, sample cases, and praise for quality work communicate high expectations.

      "Assessment plays an important part in the learning process"
    • Jessica M
       
      "When designing learning programs, the assessment criteria and assessment constraints are usually key determinants of the teaching and learning strategies chosen"
    • Jessica M
       
      "Assessment for online is underpinned by the same principles of validity, reliability, flexibility and fairness, and uses many of the same strategies used in traditional face-to-face teaching (Booth, Clayton, Hyde, Hartcher & Hungar 2002). What differs mostly is the context of the assessment, the interactions between assessor and those being assessed, and collection and administration processes."

IEEE Xplore Abstract - Empirical Study on the Effect of Achievement Badges in TRAKLA2 O... - 1 views

  • Our results show that achievement badges can be used to affect the behavior of students even when the badges have no impact on the grading.

  • Based on our findings, achievement badges seem like a promising method to motivate students and to encourage desired study practices.
  •  
    this study shows that badges can impact student achievement even with no direct correlation to their grading.

Five Mistakes Online Educators Make (Part 1) | The EvoLLLution - 0 views

  • I realized the students expected me to always be online — including at 3 a.m.!  By not establishing a clear response time expectation, I set myself up for poor evaluations by some students. Having been treated to instant answers early in the course, they expected that to continue throughout.

  • I decided to use a question and answer forum to handle the more generic questions.
