REAP - Resources > Assessment Principles: Some possible candidates - 0 views

  • Table 1: Principles of good formative assessment and feedback.


    1. Help clarify what good performance is (goals, criteria, standards).
      To what extent do students in your course have opportunities to engage actively with goals, criteria and standards, before, during and after an assessment task?
    2. Encourage ‘time and effort’ on challenging learning tasks.
      To what extent do your assessment tasks encourage regular study in and out of class and deep rather than surface learning?
    3. Deliver high quality feedback information that helps learners self-correct.
      What kind of teacher feedback do you provide – in what ways does it help students self-assess and self-correct?
    4. Provide opportunities to act on feedback (to close any gap between current and desired performance)
      To what extent is feedback attended to and acted upon by students in your course, and if so, in what ways?
    5. Ensure that summative assessment has a positive impact on learning?
      To what extent are your summative and formative assessments aligned and support the development of valued qualities, skills and understanding.
    6. Encourage interaction and dialogue around learning (peer and teacher-student.
      What opportunities are there for feedback dialogue (peer and/or tutor-student) around assessment tasks in your course?
    7. Facilitate the development of self-assessment and reflection in learning.
      To what extent are there formal opportunities for reflection, self-asse

Usable Knowledge: What is Teaching for Understanding? - 0 views

    The TfU model nicely compliments CATs and UbD - I personally use a hybrid version of all three and I see many similar ideas in our readings for this class from JISC

      "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.
  • We also found that students in the two studied courses responded differently to the badges.
  • 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.
  •  
    This is a great resource - thank you. I will be adding to my own library for future use.

Annie Murphy Paul: Why Teaching Someone Else is the Best Way To Learn | TIME.com - 0 views

  • Above all, it’s the emotions elicited by teaching that make it such a powerful vehicle for learning. Student tutors feel chagrin when their virtual pupils fail; when the characters succeed, they feel what one expert calls by the Yiddish term nachas. Don’t know that word? I had to learn it myself: “Pride and satisfaction that is derived from someone else’s accomplishment.”
    • lkryder
       
      Nachas is a word used in gaming as mentoring, teaching presence from players is common
  • On a subsequent test of their skills, the students who had observed agents using rules of reasoning to solve a problem “significantly outperformed” students who had only practiced applying the rules themselves.
  • A 2009 study of Betty’s Brain published in the Journal of Science Education and Technology found that students engaged in instructing her spent more time going over the material and learned it more thoroughly.

  • The benefits of this practice were indicated by a pair of articles published in 2007 in the journals Science and Intelligence. The studies concluded that first-born children are more intelligent than their later-born brothers and sisters and suggested that their higher IQs result from the time they spend showing their younger siblings the ropes. Educators are experimenting with ways to apply this model to academic subjects. In an ingenious program at the University of Pennsylvania, a “cascading mentoring program” engages college undergraduates to teach computer science to high school students, who in turn instruct middle school students on the topic.

Learning from Our Teaching Mistakes | Faculty Focus - 0 views

  • I hold in particularly high esteem those faculty members not only willing to talk about teaching failures but also to publish articles about them
  • But you also can’t read them and be unimpressed by how much they learned through the analysis. Each one is an exemplar of the kind of critical reflection that fosters growth. This is reflection that makes us wise and wonderful teachers. And finally you also can’t read these articles and not realize how much there is for us to learn from one another’s mistakes. I’m definitely in favor of more articles like these, but there is one caveat. It might be better if they were published after you have tenure or a continuing contract.

Teaching Writing as Process | Institute for Writing and Rhetoric - 0 views

  •  
    This article from Dartmouth College is a good introduction to the basic steps of the writing process, and jumps off to several links which get into the steps in more detail. The authors stress that each student's process is going to be a little different; writing a paper is not like following a recipe with precise steps.

Guest Post | Helping Students Motivate Themselves - NYTimes.com - 0 views

  •  
    This article tackles the subject of student motivation - specifically, how students can be intrinsically motivated rather than just going for the grade. Several possible options are discussed for how to build up motivation over time. The article mostly focuses on younger children, but perhaps some of the strategies can be adapted for college students?

Student-led facilitation strategies in online discussions - 0 views

  •  
    This article describes a study done in a graduate education course, where students were asked to facilitate discussions. It highlights specific discussion types and walks through the problems students experienced adjusting to this new role. (Even though they were teachers themselves, these graduate students weren't accustomed to functioning in the teacher role during an online class!)
  •  
    This study explored student-led facilitation strategies used to overcome the
    challenges of instructor-dominated facilitation, enhance the sense of learning
    community, and encourage student participation in online discussions...
