Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy Design

Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy Design | Leadership in education | Scoop.it
Are you planning and communicating your feedback criteria? Here is our Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy Design, an infographic to help you plan better assessments.

Allan Shaw's insight:

'In the infographic, Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy, we have organized types of activities that suit various levels of assessments (2001) starting with remember, understand, and apply in the first row. The second row of our infographic includes higher levels of active learning including analyze, evaluate, and create. Engaging curriculum whether face-to-face, blended, or online push student performances to these levels of learning; however, these assessments are less conducive to automated feedback systems as rubrics typically require intelligent judgment. The appropriate level of learning for any assessment should be determined by the learning objective(s).' - This is worthy of your time and reflection.

To enable our students to become assessment literate, teachers need to align their assessment feedback practices with the purpose of the learning. This info graphic provides an easy to use guide based on Bloom's taxonomy of developmental learning - a good reminder to be deliberate!

10 Assessment Design Tips for Increasing Online Student Retention, Satisfaction and Learning

10 Assessment Design Tips for Increasing Online Student Retention, Satisfaction and Learning | Leadership in education | Scoop.it

"Formative feedback is the annual checkup at the doctor. Summative feedback is the autopsy. The former gives one feedback that can be used to improve the patient’s well-being or the learner’s progress toward meeting the course goals. The latter doesn’t do much for the person being assessed. With that in mind, why not put most of our energy into designing high-quality formative feedback plans in our online courses? This is the feedback that helps learners discover how they are progressing toward one or more goals."

Allan Shaw's insight:

Assessment should reflect purpose. We require summative assessment in our society and yet we know learners thrive, grow and develop on a diet of formative assessment. The balance is the key! Feedback and the use of authentic assessment tasks are critical positive factors.

They make sense, but ask teachers about authentic assessment. It is still thought of as an isolated activity where the student does their project alone. That is not the way of the world and has not been forever. We work and learn together. Why not assess together?
