Adaptive Assessment Facilitates Differentiated Learning

Adaptive Assessment Facilitates Differentiated Learning | Adaptive Learning | Scoop.it

As we move to a model where learners have options in terms of how they learn, there is a new role for assessment in diagnosing how best to support an individual learner. This new role should not be confused with computerized adaptive testing, which has been used for years to give examinees different assessment items depending on their responses to previous items on the test in order to get more precise estimates of ability using fewer test items.

Adaptive assessment has a different goal. It is designed to identify the next kind of learning experience that will most benefit the particular learner. The School of One demonstration project used adaptive assessment to differentiate learning by combining information from inventories that students completed on how they like to learn with information on students’ actual learning gains after different types of experiences (working with a tutor, small-group instruction, learning online, learning through games). This information was used to generate individual “playlists” of customized learning activities for every student.

Maureen Greenbaum's insight:

https://diigo.com/01037o


Non- traditional stu­dents are espe­cially focused on flex­ible, outcomes-based edu­ca­tion, a need that has driven many of the recent changes in higher edu­ca­tion. “They want to choose pro­grams with a strong value propo­si­tion and very strong out­comes,” he explained. “They ask, ‘Will these pro­grams get me jobs?’” he said, adding that non-traditional learners are par­tic­u­larly eager for expe­ri­en­tial learning opportunities—the inte­gra­tion of class­room and real-world learning.

While the new delivery models—Massive Open Online Courses (or MOOCs), adap­tive learning, and competency-based edu­ca­tion, among others—respond to these expec­ta­tions, they lack the expe­ri­en­tial com­po­nent that would truly address the mis­match between the skills of recent grad­u­ates and the expec­ta­tions of employers. -

 

He pre­dicted that we will see more inno­va­tions from these rapidly expanding higher edu­ca­tion sys­tems in which the key fac­tors are: “low cost, scal­a­bility, access instead of exclu­sion, flex­i­bility, phys­ical nim­ble­ness, out­come ori­en­ta­tion, and rel­e­vance to the envi­ron­ment they are in.” As emerging economies gen­erate their own dis­tinc­tive approaches, there is likely to be con­sid­er­able “reverse inno­va­tion,” in which Western higher edu­ca­tion sys­tems learn from the those approaches and adopt solu­tions from the emerging world.

Adaptive eLearning - Smart Sparrow

Adaptive eLearning - Smart Sparrow | Adaptive Learning | Scoop.it

Adaptive eLearning creates the best possible learning experience for students by emulating the talents of great educators. This is achieved by using technologies that  adapt and shape teaching to the needs of the individual student.

Each student is unique, has varying levels of knowledge, and learns differently. Our research, and that of other academics, has shown that student performance improves when online educational content is personalised.

Smart Sparrow empowers teachers with an Adaptive eLearning Platform that allows them to easily create and deploy rich, interactive, and adaptive educational content using powerful online technologies. The focus of Adaptive eLearning is to provide teachers with complete control over how the content adapts to the student. We call this Pedagogical Ownership and we think it is vital to making it an effective teaching tool.

Additionally, an Adaptive eLearning Platform provides teachers with a window into their students’ learning for the lessons they’ve created. Online analytics provide actionable insights into what students know, what misconceptions they may have, and how they are interacting with content. This feature allows teachers to continuously adapt and improve their lessons.

Adaptive learning offers an opportunity to enhance the instructional effectiveness of colleges and universities and to deliver more personalized pathways to students

Suppliers need to partner with institutions to understand where and how their solutions can demonstrate efficacy and value, and colleges and universities need to demonstrate a willingness to explore this academic technology innovation

What institutions – and suppliers – cannot do is ignore strategies such as adaptive learning for personalizing the education experience for students and instructors alike. The inexorable march toward a learner-centric, outcomes orientation across the postsecondary landscape is here.

"Daphne Koller is enticing top universities to put their most intriguing courses online for free -- not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn. Each keystroke, comprehension quiz, peer-to-peer forum discussion and self-graded assignment builds an unprecedented pool of data on how knowledge is processed and, most importantly, absorbed."

Since its February launch, Pearson-backed education startup Alleyoop has been learning from the collective behavior of its student users. On Wednesday, it rolled out a new recommendation engine informed by the tens of thousands of new data inputs.

 

Alleyoop scale the ultimate educational experience, which is the valuable but expensive tutoring experience.

 

Alleyoop asks students to complete offline “missions,” such as talking to people about certain topics, and then report their experiences back to Alleyoop.

Credit Without Teaching April 22, 2013 ByPaul Fain
Earlier this year Capella University and the new College for America began enrolling hundreds of students in academic programs without courses, teaching professors, grades, deadlines or credit hour requirements, but with a path to genuine college credit.

The two institutions are among a growing number that are giving competency-based education a try, including 25 or so nonprofit institutions. Notable examples include Western Governors University and the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.

These programs are typically online, and allow students to progress at their own pace without formal course material. They can earn credit by successfully completing assessments that prove their mastery in predetermined competencies or tasks -- maybe writing in a business setting or using a spreadsheet to perform calculations.

College for America and a small pilot program at Capella go a step further than the others, however, by severing any link to the credit hour standard. This approach is called “direct assessment.”

‘Virtual learning’ revolutionising universities

Technology is changing the face of university education, with virtual learning now becoming an essential part of ‘hands on’ degrees such as medicine, nursing and engineering.
Maureen Greenbaum's insight:

https://diigo.com/0yh79

“When someone is teaching one-to-one, it’s a really intelligent and adaptive learning experience, as opposed to, for example, when someone just talks to 1000 people in a lecture,” he says.

“We think of adaptive e-learning as a suite of tools that let teachers create really amazing learning experiences – they’re intelligent, they’re adaptive, they’re rich.”


“Instead of giving you a piece of paper, we put it on a PDF and then you get it online and you still print it, so we didn’t change much there. Instead of a lecture, we still maybe do a video lecture – that’s hardly using the power of computers,” he says.

“We know everything about what you know and how you learn best because we get so much data. We can predict failure in advance, which means we can pre-remediate it in advance.”

Personalize Learning: Toolkit | Adaptive Learning | Scoop.it

How do you personalize learning? First you need to know what personalized learning is. Here is a new site that provides resources, research, models, examples, and stories. This page provides a toolkit that can help your organization begin personalizing learning to meet the needs of all learners. 

 

Check out the chart that compares Personalization, Differentiation, and Indivdiualization. You can download the chart and a report that explains the details of the chart.  The Three Stages of Personalized Learning Environments can help you determine where you are in personalizing learning. 

 

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides the framework in personalizing learning for all learners. UDL also guides the design of the Personal Learner Profile[TM]. It provides the UDL lens to select the appropriate tools for the Personal Learning Backpack[TM]. UDL guides how Personalized Learning meets the Common Core.
