Assessment
A presentation by Ruari MacGibbon
We need to know where we are going and where we have been
My Assessment Tool
Create a short video to describe what is needed to safely climb a tree.
Could be used as formative or summative assessment
Use of appropriate Blooms Taxonomy for levels of learners. Create (higher order skill) and describe (lower order skill).
It's

- assesses appropriate tasks covering al learning outcomes.
It's
Authentic

ing body.
Need to supply standardised equipment
Sufficient
- shows clearly that students can carry out tasks and are familiar with equipment.
Equality
- assessment fair for all. Translate assessment briefs to make them easier to understand. Select easier trees for less compotent students.
Inclusive
- assessment can be carried out outside of classroom.
Minimum core
- numeracy, literacy and ICT skills included.
Differentiation
- select pairs so that a more compotent student is working with a lesser compotent student.
Analysis of my tool
The Assessment Cycle
Plan to assess
Assess skills and knowledge
Make assessment decisions and give feedback
Contribute to Quality
Assurance procedures
Evaluation and Feedback
Peer Assessment
- students work in pairs. Video can be used for peer evaluation. Watching same video and discussing improvements and errors. Sadler (1989) highlights how students can be hard on themselves and need clear targets to feel that they are progressing.

Evaluation
Videos used for self, peer and tutor evaluation. Students asked to fill out a short answer evaluation sheet based on assessment criteria highlighting possible areas for future learning.

Feedback
- Positive statement/praise, precise observation, impact, request suggestion, conclusion (positive and motivating)
Formative Assessment

"Transmission mode of learning doesn't work" (Black and Wilian)

FA helps low attainers see how they are progressing (Fuchs et al, 1997)
(Tummons, 2005)
Video worked really well.
Students enjoyed using ICT. They were motivated and engaged.
Problems were encountered when transferring videos from student phones onto college computers. To overcome this it was decided to share videos on social media sites.
