"What started last year as a Self Assessment Guide, has been reworked into a more general tool for assessment. This new guide is suitable for teacher, peer or self assessment and also offers a visual map of what we want students to learn (with highlighting of which concepts are most important). Although still ICT specific, this guide could be adapted to any subject by changing the attributes and keywords."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 30, 2014 8:33 PM

Check out this revised assessment tool from Ross Parker. In the post he shares his experience with using this for a year and the awareness that the tool was not as functional as he had hoped. In brief, he has made four shifts.

1. Taking a tool designed for self assessment and realizing that the same time used throughout the year gets old quickly. Therefore, it is redesigned to "more general, useful for teachers and peers to use."

2. A shift from strands (high level learning outcomes), to attributes (which allows the tool to be used by students over many years as their knowledge and skills grow).

3. A move away from levels or grades to a focus on ways of learning.

4. Allowing students to determine levels rather than assigning them based on personal view.

Last year this tool was well received and this new version brings it up to a new level. Consider using this with students and perhaps have them keep a copy of it asking them to review it later on in the school year. You can download a pdf version of the tool from the website.

Interesting way to approach self-assessment in vocational areas. Could be adapted easily

The Discussion Board Book - Academic Outreach ECU

diane gusa's insight:

Question, Critique and Defend: Students need to learn these important skills. While they are familiar with their use in conversations, they may not have much practice commenting in a writing format, and certainly even less when it comes to confronting other's scholarly work directly. Modeling methods of couching a critique of others by you would help, but if you start commenting on all student's work, other students will hang back. An email or posting to the announcements page is a gentle way of letting the students know it is "OK" to engage in civil discourse of their peer's work.

Dialogue and Negotiate: Once the initial contact is made between students, they will move towards more scholarly dialogue and then to collaborate to negotiate. Students who do this well will provide a sound foundation for their argument, while student's with lesser ability will rely solely on personal opinion.

 

: Here is a good article by Bill Pez, recipient of the 2003 Sloan-C award for Excellence in Online Teaching called, " (My) Three Principles of Effective Online Pedagogy." While the scope of the article extends beyond the Discussion Board, he provides good commentary on how to work with students to take responsibility and actively participate in their learning process.

Ownership: When students run their own Discussion Board, they develop a sense of ownership.

Peer Assessment: Peer's assessment is great rehearsal for the real world, where the students will be commenting on their co-workers. It also allows the student to take in other's comments, reframe them in according to their personal knowledge to check to make sure that they have understand what their peers are saying.

Interdependence: The greater the dialogue, the more students will look to each other for information. While it does make your workload lighter, more importantly it teaches the students to look beyond you and the book for information to form their thoughts
