Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 10, 7:14 AM

The whole idea of exams/tests is outdated. When was the last time we tested employees at the end of the day, week, or month. We don't. It is interesting to be told how much School needs to catch up to the "real world" of work and we fail in the most obvious ways. The very thought that any test is necessary is ridiculous and teachers should move away from it and discourage parents from letting children write government exams.

What Do You Mean by 'Badges?' | re-mediating assessment

What Do You Mean by 'Badges?' | re-mediating assessment | Rubrics, Assessment and eProctoring in Higher Education | Scoop.it

I was exchanging some emails with an a esteemed educational researcher and administrator about our Big Open Online Course on Educational Assessment and open courses in general and mentioned badges.  In his reply he asked, "what do you mean by 'badges'?"  After an amazing day of progress working with digital badges yesterday, it was a nice reminder of just how new this concept is. So I figured I would reply with a basic explanation and provide some timely updates on one aspect of our badges work.
Digital badges are web-enabled credentials.  Unlike traditional grades, transcripts, certificates, etc., badges can contain specific claims about accomplishments, along with detailed evidence (and links to more evidence) in support of those claims.

7 Effective Templates For Teacher Feedback - Edudemic

7 Effective Templates For Teacher Feedback - Edudemic | Rubrics, Assessment and eProctoring in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Feedback in the classroom is often one-sided: the teacher gives feedback and the student receives it, generally relating to the quality of their work. Depending on the level of the students you teach, you may find yourself subject to student evaluation, but generally that only comes once a semester (at least at the university level), …

The Babel generator, which Mr. Perelman built with a team of students from MIT and Harvard University, can generate essays from scratch using as many as three keywords.

 

For this essay, Mr. Perelman has entered only one keyword: "privacy." With the click of a button, the program produced a string of bloated sentences that, though grammatically correct and structurally sound, have no coherent meaning. Not to humans, anyway. But Mr. Perelman is not trying to impress humans. He is trying to fool machines.

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle

Moodle Rubric Grading - Complete Guide - Super Moodle | Rubrics, Assessment and eProctoring in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The Moodle rubric, a system built for criteria-based assessment, explicitly describes the performance expectation for an assignment. The rubrics have several criteria and each criterion has several descriptive levels provided. A rubric identifies several attributes. They include descriptions, performance levels and the criteria.

 

Criteria take into account the performance aspects that an instructor intends to assess. The description attribute denotes the desired characteristics associated with a criterion. The performance level is a rating scale in rubric used to identify the level of mastery a student has within a given criteria. Each descriptive level has a numerical grade and an instructor can choose the level that answers a given criterion in the best way possible.

Moodle is always evolving.  One of the strengths of this open source giant is the depth of user community resources.  The Rubric system helps you build grading criteria that will help your online students hit the target.

Four key questions about grading | Faculty Focus

Four key questions about grading | Faculty Focus | Rubrics, Assessment and eProctoring in Higher Education | Scoop.it

There's an excellent article on grading in a recent issue of Cell Biology Education-Life Sciences Education. It offers a brief history of grading (it hasn’t been around for all that long), and then looks to the literature for answers to four key questions.

 

We grade students to give them feedback, to motivate their learning, to see how they compare with other students, and to measure their learning—all reasonable purposes. "However, much of the research literature [reviewed in this article] suggests that these goals are often not being achieved with our current grading practices." (p. 163) Yes, that's a pretty scathing critique, but it's well documented and our answers to questions this central need to be accurate.
