Design Principles for Assessing Learning with Digital Badges

Design Principles for Assessing Learning with Digital Badges | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

This post introduces the emerging design principles for assessing learning with digital badges. This is the second of four posts that will introduce theDesign Principles Documentation Project’s (introduced in a previous post) emerging design principles around recognizing, assessing, motivating and evaluating learning.

At their core, digital badges recognize some kind of learning. But if one is going to recognize learning, there is usually some kind of assessment of that learning so that claims about learning can be substantiated by evidence. Over the course of the last year, we have tracked the way that assessment practices have unfolded across the 30 DML Badges for Lifelong Learning competition winners. We have categorized these practices into ten more general principles for assessing learning with digital badges. These principles are not presented as “best practices.” Rather, these principles are meant to represent appropriate practices that seemed to work for particular projects as they designed and refined their badge systems.

No one project embodies all of these principles, and the principles mean somewhat different things to different projects. The general principles have been broken down into specific practice categories, but they are still being refined. Some of these categories are discussed here. We seek input from individuals and projects at this time as we attempt to firm up these principles and categories.

Measuring Engagement: Learning Analytics in Online Learning [paper by Griff Richards]

Measuring Engagement: Learning Analytics in Online Learning [paper by Griff Richards] | Ed Tech | Scoop.it
If you’re interested in learning more about measuring student engagement in your Moodle course, this is a great paper/primer to start with. The paper was written by Griff Richards of Thompson Rivers University in Canada and highlights some key findings from recent studies of Moodle and Blackboard and how the researchers went about establishing a metric for student engagement in online courses. Get a copy of the paper here: http://goo.gl/YDEVR I’ve been thinking a lot about engagement in courses at StraighterLine (which offers self-paced online college courses via Moodle) and there were some really great quotes and other papers cited that gave me a broader lit review to explore. A few of my favorite quotes: "Some measures of engagement can be misleading. For example, Beer, Clark and Jones (2010) plotted the number of learning management system (LMS) page visits (“hits”) by academic achievement for several thousand students (see Figure 2). They noted a solid correlation between the number of LMS hits and the student grade. Did this mean that students who clicked more web pages were more engaged? Perhaps, but the explanation might simply be that they had to click on the web pages to take their tests and submit their assignments, and students who completed their work were more likely to succeed. Beer et al. also noted that students using the Blackboard LMS had much higher hits than students using Moodle LMS. Does that Measuring Engagement mean Blackboard is a more engaging LMS? No, it reflects that Moodle has a more efficient access architecture. Learning Analytics is not simply about counting hits or mapping discussions, it is about intelligent and thoughtful interpretation of data in the context of human activity."
