Disrupt Your Grading Rut: Alternative Assessment Methods for the Online Classroom

Disrupt Your Grading Rut: Alternative Assessment Methods for the Online Classroom | LEC: Learn Engage Create | Scoop.it
Authentic, learner-centered, collaborative assessment alternatives
Alternative assessment methods such as writing assignments, collaborative assignments, case studies, and debates can avoid the problems often associated with tests and quizzes. “There are many ways to approach assessment. It depends on the context of the course. When we teach faculty how to teach online, we try to give them a taste of a majority of those methods. I don’t know that we can cover all of them in one course, but there are multiple ways to get at the issues and make this a real-life situation for the students so they can actually learn from the process,” Pratt says.
Palloff and Pratt recommend selecting assessment methods that are learner-centered and authentic.

For my Teaching friends. Great information about assessments focusing on more than simple memorizing information. With today's "age of information", open book testing can be used, when designed appropriately, to actually teach as well as assess.

Sue Walsh's curator insight, October 17, 7:13 PM

it is a real challege to stretch thinking to real-life assessment approaches and take everyone on the journey. the focus on learner centred and authentic is great, and dare I mention the many of these approaches lend to assessment only pathways ... but thats a whole other challenge!

10 tendencias para a aprendizagem mista

Minha tendencia favoita  é :

e a sua ?

#avancee

Leonard Waks's curator insight, November 16, 1:20 AM

Of these 10 proposed drivers, I an guessing that the most important will be #5 and #6. At least for the time being, universities are really strapped for funds. Consider for # 5 a 'MOOC-Based wrapped course' where a prof assigns a MOOC as homework, and then  meets with the class one day a week = and follows up with a couple of weeks of class time at the end for projects and examinations. This strikes me as a  good division of labor in many courses - letting the high production videos do what they do best and the prof do what demands a human mind and heart for problem solving and coaching and mentoring. It can reduce faculty time by more than 1/2 without loss of quality. Now for #6, consider a group of twenty faculty members teaching wrapped courses based on the very same MOOC. They will have many questions and concerns and they can (a) find each other and (b) address them collectively through their learning network. The only other 'driver' that floats my boat at this point is #3. Many students like MOOC-based courses. The lectures are excellent and fit conveniently into schedules, and the professor is available to serve his or her most important functions. But I wouldn't oversell this. Many students still prefer day to day hand holding and may actually need it from a socio-emotional perspective to stay engaged in the course. So I'm betting on #5 and #6 as most important.

Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning

Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning | LEC: Learn Engage Create | Scoop.it

By: Maryellen Weimer, PhD in Teaching Professor Blog

 

"One of the best gifts teachers can give students are the experiences that open their eyes to themselves as learners. Most students don’t think much about how they learn. Mine used to struggle to write a paragraph describing the study approaches they planned to use in my communication courses. However, to be fair, I’m not sure I had a lot of insights about my learning when I was a student. Did you?
As fall courses start to wind down, it’s an apt time for reflection. Here are some pithy (I hope) prompts that might motivate students to consider their beliefs about learning."


Via Dennis T OConnor
Jose Pietri's insight:

Usable in LEC and other self-learning based approaches.

Claire Brooks's curator insight, November 24, 5:01 PM

good prompts for developing reflective practice about self as learner. Might work in with some aspects of Learning Analytics too.

Audrey's curator insight, November 27, 12:15 PM
Questions such as the two below are very helpful in getting students to think about their own learning and to take responsibility rather than waiting for the teacher to always direct them: Say, for example, you don’t think you’re any good at math, or that you can’t write or draw, what happens when you have to do these things? Does what you believe about yourself as a learner have any effect on how you perform?Have you ever learned something you didn’t think you could learn? What? How did you feel once you had learned it?

 

 I recently asked students to do work they had not been asked previously to do.  The result was:  all 13 students performed very well. They had to write and think in different ways. I asked them to write an essay in 25 minutes on a topic they had not previously studied.  

 

The other topic was: to make sentences using homonyns.   A  homonyn is a word that is spelt the same or sounds the same as another word but is different in meaning, e.g. ate and eight; berry and bury; red and read.  

 

Although the majority of the students were foreign and were learning English as a second language, they were able to complete the task exceptionally well.  They were allowed to work in twos but none of them consulted a dictionary.  All of them completed 10 sentences using homonyns such as:   bore/boar; birth/berth; bald/bawled; pray/prey; principle/principal; missed/mist, etc ....without asking me the meanings.

 

What this demonstrates is that in the right environment / atmosphere a person will  use their brain processes.  What educators should always be doing is encouraging the intake of knowledge in a variety of contexts, situations: students should visit museums,  banks to learn real mathematics; House of Parliament to question politicians, etc....

Overcoming the Motivation Challenge in eLearning: 5 Things You Can Do

Overcoming the Motivation Challenge in eLearning: 5 Things You Can Do | LEC: Learn Engage Create | Scoop.it
Motivation in eLearning can best be described with a U-shaped curve: novelty and enthusiasm produce high drive at the beginning, but it drops off sharply thereafter, only increasing when the end of the course is in sight. It is up to you to boost and maintain your students' motivation throughout the course, so that they will get the most out of it. Unless they have the motivation to focus and sit through the entire course, they learn nothing at all.

Though every student responds differently, here are some fundamental guidelines you can use to keep your learners motivation levels high from that first splash to the finish line.
