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

10 Assessment Design Tips for Increasing Online Student Retention, Satisfaction and Learning | teaching and technology | Scoop.it
How much time do we put into the design of the assessment plans in our online courses? Is most of that time focused upon summative graded assignments that factor into the course grade? Or, do they also include opportunity for practice and informal feedback?

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?

The Key Differences Between Summative And Formative Assessments | Edudemic

The Key Differences Between Summative And Formative Assessments | Edudemic | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

Assessments are a part of every classroom, regardless of subject matter or grade level. Theycome in all shapes and sizes, and they can be used for a number of reasons.

 

Sometimes, the differences between the types of assessments can be subtle. Many teachers will find that some subjects lend themselves really well to certain types of question formats (like multiple choice vs. short answer vs. essay), but the style of question shouldn’t be confused with the type of assessment.

 

While there are many more, summative and formative assessments are probably two of the most widely used in education today. The handy infographic below takes a look at the main concepts of each type of assessment along with examples of each.

10 Ways Teacher Planning Should Adjust To The Google Generation

 

For the Google Generation, information isn’t scarce, and knowing has the illusion of only being a search away.

 

I’ve written before about how Google impacts the way students think. This post is less about students, and more about how planning resources like standards and curriculum maps might respond accordingly.

 

Curriculum maps are helpful little documents that standardize learning. That is, they clarify the content to be learned, and offer a shared pathway and schedule to deliver that content to students. Curriculum maps function as a kind of overview of learning content, and can also provide a common ground for the reform of planned learning activities based on assessment data (O’Malley, 1982).

10 Ways Teacher Planning Should Adjust To The Google Generation & The Age Of Information

1. Make the work Google-proof

2. Force them to grapple with big questions without answers

3. Actually make social networks and media channels part of curriculum

4. Focus on learning strategies 

5. Create curriculum and lessons that absorb data seamlessly

6. Anticipate student needs

7. Focus less on “understanding”

8. Use spiraling by design

9. Discourage use of traditional units

10. Illuminate the nuance of the world

and bonus!

11. Promote discovery and curiosity and self-direction over coverage and compliance

 

The Age of Information is characterized by discovery, curiosity, whimsy, and connectivity–all which necessitate self-monitoring and self-direction.

Christy P.Novack's curator insight, February 23, 2014 11:36 AM

A nicely written article with strong points on what is beneficial for students. However, the reality of implementing some of the tips is beyond just the teacher in the classroom and exposes other challenges. #edtech #instructionaldesign

This interactive website allows you to explore climate change from the following perspectives:

* By region (and it is global so you click on the location you want to begin)

* By theme (and there are seven themes):

   - Food Security

   - Food Emissions

   - Climate impact on production

   - Climate impact on people

   - Adaptation

   - Mitigation

   - Policy and Finance

Quoting from Larry Ferlazzo's post Big Facts is "intended to provide a credible and reliable platform for fact checking amid the range of claims that appear in reports, advocacy materials and other sources. Full sources are supplied for all facts and figures and all content has gone through a process of peer review."

This is an open access resource. Much more information may be found at the site. (And think about checking out Larry Ferlazzo's post at http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/2014/02/08/very-very-impressive-new-interactive-site-on-climate-change/

We Should Let Learners Struggle

We Should Let Learners Struggle | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

"Allowing learners to struggle will actually help them learn better, according to research on “productive failure” conducted by Manu Kapur, a researcher at the Learning Sciences Lab at the National Institute of Education of Singapore. Kapur’s investigations find that while the model adopted by many teachers and employers when introducing others to new knowledge—providing lots of structure and guidance early on, until the students or workers show that they can do it on their own—makes intuitive sense, it’s not the best way to promote learning. Rather, it’s better to let neophytes wrestle with the material on their own for a while, refraining from giving them any assistance at the start." | by Annie Murphy Paul

The Rice Process's insight:

Meaningful learning is achieved through engagement, unpacking one's thinking, sharing and evaluating.  The notion of learning is considered a process, so many different mental activities should be happening.  A better word choice for "struggle" is to work hard. Students on't need to work to a level of frustration.  Work produces its own rewards.

"This motion graphic speaks volumes about using good digital citizenship in social media. Educators did not design it. Instead, Curated Content created it for the Australian based company Origin.

What if we had our students design a motion graphic that explained how our school views digital citizenship? Would more students understand why we consider digital citizenship important and how it may impact them in future years?

This post provides a motion graphic that discusses the policy of Origin, an Australian based company. In 3 plus minutes you are shown what you should do, and what you should not do.

As always you will find links to other articles that also discuss social media at the end of the post.

A literacy-rich environment in classrooms and schools, for example, is an important K-12 foundation to support and extend effective instruction. And, effective vocabulary instruction (here, here, here, and here, too) is an integral part of a comprehensive literacy framework and supports student learning and achievement. Building a common language educators is also important, though frequently lacking. A common language helps teachers, coaches, and administrators communicate more easily and specifically around instructional strategies associated with literacy instruction, educational initiatives, and the Common Core State Standards

The Busy Teacher's Quick Guide To Blended Learning | Edudemic

The Busy Teacher's Quick Guide To Blended Learning | Edudemic | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

Blended learning is a combination of some face-to-face teaching and some online teaching. It is a great way for teachers to bring online components into the forefront, rather than just using digital materials as supplemental (often at home) course materials.

 

Blended learning has a huge advantage – it doesn’t prescribe that particular activities must be online or in person. There isn’t a particular percentage of teaching and learning that has to happen in the classroom or not.

 

You can tailor it to your needs, and do some experimentation. It is so flexible, and can be something different for each teacher, each class, or each student. One class may lean heavily on the online component and another may not, depending on the availability and appropriateness of materials available
