Two Cheers for Multiple-Choice Tests!

Two Cheers for Multiple-Choice Tests! | Online Education | Scoop.it
A team of scientists decided to take another look at the much-maligned multiple-choice test, to see if at least some kinds of questions, if well constructed, might indeed trigger the crucial retrieval process, and thus promote memory and learning.

Keeping an Eye on Cheaters

Keeping an Eye on Cheaters | Online Education | Scoop.it
When it comes to secure testing online, even high-tech solutions rely on an old standby: a human proctor. But is such an approach sustainable in the long run?

" ... cheating becomes more difficult when there is significant student-instructor interaction. Indeed, some courses eliminate proctored exams altogether--instead, faculty base grades on projects, non-proctored quizzes, and other measures."

The Dark History of the Multiple-Choice Test

The Dark History of the Multiple-Choice Test | Online Education | Scoop.it

Multiple-choice questions are an accepted institution. Yet we know little about where they come from. When researching materials for my book, Save Our Science, I stumbled across their not-so-nice origins.

Marc My Words: Own the Assessment, Not the Course by Marc J. Rosenberg

Marc My Words: Own the Assessment, Not the Course by Marc  J. Rosenberg | Online Education | Scoop.it

Think in a different way about the age-old question, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” Which comes first, the assessment (the test) or the course? Do you have to have the course before you know what to assess or test? Or must you first define what you hope to accomplish—and how to best assess that accomplishment—before you can build the course that gets you there?

"We talk about evaluation all the time, but do we consistently do a good job at it? Probably not—and this is a big problem. Writing a few multiple-choice questions at the end of a training module is not nearly enough. Evaluation and assessment is more important than ever, and it’s not so easy to do. In the end, it is both sophisticated science as well as art. Build your capabilities here."

Online Quizzing to Promote Learning: A Formative Assessment Approach

Online Quizzing to Promote Learning: A Formative Assessment Approach | Online Education | Scoop.it

As faculty, we spend countless hours deciding how to assess whether or not students achieve our learning outcomes for the course. The most common assessment approach is testing, and this can be a very effective and efficient way to assess the level of learning that took place. This approach of measuring ultimate achievement levels is considered summative assessment.

" ...use online quizzing as a learning tool. Not only will the quizzing itself increase student learning, you can also use statistics on student performance to shape your lectures and lessons, which will further enhance learning."

"Written response format and use of student generated conceptual models as well as graphs to show relationships are but a few of the methods I use to assess learning. All drawings or graphs are completed in Paint on netbooks and more recently as students opt to bring their own device (BYOT) are using apps like DoodleBuddy to submit their response."
