       Most frequently heard is the claim that involving students in the assessment of their work, especially giving them opportunities 
      to contribute to the criteria on which that work will be judged, increases student engagement in assessment tasks. 
    • Jessica M
       
      Other teachers argue that self-assessment has distinctive features that warrant its use. For example, self-assessment provides information that is not easily determined, such as how much effort students expended in preparing for the task.
    • Jessica M
       
      Still others argue that students learn 
      more when they know that they will share 
      responsibility for the assessment of what they have learned.

      In the hands of students, a good rubric can orient learners to the concept of quality as defined by experts in a field, inform self- and peer assessment, and guide revision and improvement. Rubrics can be informative as well as evaluative.
    • Jessica M
       
      During self-assessment, students reflect on the quality of their work, judge the degree to which it reflects explicitly stated goals or criteria, and revise. Self-assessment is formative-students assess works in progress to find ways to improve their performance.

      Good feedback practice:
      * facilitates the development of self-assessment (reflection) in learning;
      * encourages teacher and peer dialogue around learning;
      * helps clarify what good performance is (goals, criteria, expected standards);
      * provides opportunities to close the gap between current and desired performance;
      * delivers high quality information to students about their learning;
      * encourages positive motivational beliefs and self-esteem; and
      * provides information to teachers that can be used to help shape their teaching (Nicol 
      & Macfarlane-Dick, 2006

      They suggested 
      that communities include "a sense of shared purpose, trust, support, and collaboration--i.e., a sense of 
      community-[that] is an essential element in the development of quality online learning environments" 
    • Jessica M
       
       Interaction influences learning and knowing, and it is especially important in distance 
      education because it helps reduce feelings of isolation and contributes to the student success in online environments

      "Effective practice can be defined as employing a range of 
      pedagogic skills to bring about the best possible learning for the widest variety of learners."
    • Jessica M
       
      "Designing learning activities takes place in real academic 
      contexts in which any particular activity is likely to form 
      part of a wider set of decisions involving the design of programmes, modules, sessions and individual resources."

Effective assessment in a digital age - 0 views

      "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.
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • Similarly, we found that instructors rarely provided acknowledgement feedback
  • 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."

      "The view of technology as playing a "role" for the student with disabilities includes a focus on 
      the teacher's integration of technology into the learning environment and on technology's impact on student outcomes and related benefits"
    • Jessica M
       
      "It is imperative that the general education curricula be made

ASSESSING TEACHING PRESENCE IN A COMPUTER CONFERENCING CONTEXT - 0 views

    • Jessica M
       
      "The teacher shares responsibility with each individual student for 
      attainment of agreed upon learning objectives. The teacher supports and encourages participation 
      by modeling appropriate behaviors, commenting upon and encouraging student responses, 
      drawing in the less active participations, and curtailing the effusive comments of those who tend 
      to dominate the virtual space. "

Community in the Classroom: An Approach to Curriculum and Instruction as a Means for t... - 1 views

      "It is essential to begin laying a foundation 
      for a community to emerge and develop from the first day of school; the initial experience must reflect the need for and importance of forming a classroom community." - same thing for online classes - the first activity, discussion, or contact needs to help develop class community
    • Jessica M
       
      "The teacher must remain true to the process and gradually invite students to direct their own learning." - getting students to lead discussions comfortably and be apart of a community is a process, you need to work students towards these goals and show them what you expect of them first
    • Jessica M
       
      "improving their self-concept and confidence is to work to build relationships within an intellectually safe classroom community" - very true for high school students, many often lack the confidence in their own work and understanding at first

      Three key feature of communities: Inclusiveness, Participation, and Shared Cognition 
    • Jessica M
       
      "promote and develop a classroom environment where students are trusted, willing, and able to engage in responsible dialogue and inquiry and to create meaning" - students need to trust each other, be able to listen and respect everyone's interactions in the class
    • Jessica M
       
      "School is a place where students should feel safe to 
      engage intellectually, socially, and emotionally in the act of  learning" - once students feel this safety within their community, they are more willing to participate and openly engage in their learning
