Using comparative judgement and online technologies in the assessment and measurement of creative performance and capability

Using comparative judgement and online technologies in the assessment and measurement of creative performance and capability | Digital Forms of Assessment | Scoop.it
In this paper we argue that comparative judgement delivered by online technologies is a viable, valid and highly reliable alternative to traditional analytical marking. In the past, comparative judgement has been underused in educational assessment and measurement, particularly in large-scale testing, mainly due to the lack of supporting technologies to facilitate the large number of judgements and judges. We describe the foundations of comparative judgement and dispel many of the old issues regarding its use in regards to time, cost and training for large-scale assessment. Studies in the use of comparative judgement and online technologies for the assessment and measurement of practical performance conducted by Edith Cowan University provide a context for further promoting its use in educational testing.

CORE ELA Performance Assessment Modules

These ELA Performance Assessment Modules were developed by cross-district design teams during the Summer of 2012, piloted during the 2012-13 school year, and revised based on feedback from the Pilot.  They are directly aligned to both the Common Core State Standards and the SMARTER Balanced assessment specifications, and can be used in a variety of means–as diagnostic pre-assessments, as mid-instruction formative assessments, or as mini summative benchmark assessments.

I have looked at several of these modules and am seeing really good results. Especially appreciate that they have been field tested and revised. They are all aligned to the Common Core, and the beauty of the #CCSS is that it doesn't really matter which testing group you choose to use, if the instruction and assessment is aligned to the CCSS, you should be good to go.

Paul Newhouse's insight:

To make a real difference we need more than just individual teachers using digital forms of assessment, we need schools, school systems and awarding bodies to support them with courageous political decisions and robust digital infrastructure.
