Rethinking Grading In A 21st Century Project-Based Learning Environment

Rethinking Grading In A 21st Century Project-Based Learning Environment | Digital school test | Scoop.it
Rethinking Grading In A 21st Century Project-Based Learning Environment
Dafnord 's insight:

I wrote both literal reports and gave numbers during my teaching career for 30 years. While writing literal reports I noticed how much I revealed about myself as a person and how little I actually said about the assessee. Later, giving numbers instead of reports I felt alienated and disaffected. But the entire system of numerical assessment was there to cover my feeling.of estrangement. The students did not complain. Less did they know about anything better.
I am a protagonist of project-based learning since the beginning of 1990s. I think PBL is the most important area of eLearning. Digital classroom techniques mean more speed, instant sharing of information, ubiquitous communication, but what do they add to human growth? PBL across the borders makes the eyes of students sparkle :-). No need for numbers or artificial reports.
I like the title of this article, and I like the way the reader is tempted to read further. And I like the opinions, and I like the conclusion. There should be more texts like this to support teachers who still have the willingness to rethink...

College voor examens - College voor Examens / Board of Examinations

Dafnord 's insight:

The Dutch Board of Examinations is an interesting player among different national examination boards, because the Netherlands is one of the most advanced countries in Europe in developing eAssessment and digital testing methods. I think it's useful for everyone to follow what the DBoE has to say about these topics.

Welcome to WebCEF | WebCEF

Welcome to WebCEF | WebCEF | Digital school test | Scoop.it
Dafnord 's insight:

 

The WebCEF tool http://webcef.open.ac.uk/ is an instrument for online assessment of oral language proficiency. The assessments are based on the Common European Framework of Reference.

 WebCEF enables the collaborative assessment of oral language proficiency through a web-based environment. As a language learner or language teacher you will be able to use this system to evaluate your own video and audio samples together with colleagues and peers across Europe.

In July 2011, the WebCEF project was awarded the European Language Label. This was given to 21 projects out of 130 applications.

 

History: The initiative for WebCEF was discussed in Graz, Austria, in the context of IDT, the international conference of teachers of German August 2005. It was the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium, where my initiative was received and the EU commission accepted their application in 2006.
The WebCEF tool was developed by the consortium of European universities, educational institutions and companies in the Lifelong Learning Programme. WebCEF was realized in the Sub-programme: Key Activity 2 (Languages) Action: Multilateral projects in the framework of Transversal Programme.

Overview - Tin Can API | Digital school test | Scoop.it
Dafnord 's insight:

What if we stop thinking that testing is something valuable? You can measure how many centimeters a child has grown, but can you really test a child's growth as a human person? His or her ability to memorize things can be excellent, but then what?

Digital testing doesn't really change the fundamental problems of assessment, does it? How about portfolio assessment? Tin Can is an interesting technological innovation for "collecting things that matter", as the slogan says.
