UDL and Online Assessment
Transcript of UDL and Online Assessment
Redesign an assignment to provide students with multiple pathways to show what they know
Review UDL principles
Dive further into UDL for assessment
Explore significance for online learning
Look at strategies and tools
More re: Expression
Researchers use triangulation to verify their results. UDL proposes something similar for helping students succeed.
Meaning for online learning
In some ways, practicing UDL for assessment may be easier in the online environment.
Lots of tools - many are free
Plenty of good examples
May require some time to set up
Students may not be used to choice at first
A smattering of strategies
The right tool(s) for the job
There are countless tools we can use to assess learning, such as
Campus apps (e.g., LMS quizzes/tests, assignment submissions)
3rd party apps (e.g., Turnitin, Google Picasa for math)
Publisher tools (e.g., WileyPLUS)
Digital feedback tools (e.g., digital rubric, audio/video feedback in a screencast)
Putting it all together
The many tools students use online and in the classroom are often disconnected across their academic careers.
ePortfolios allow students to collect their work, reflect on how the work relates to their academic and professional goals, and share that work with teachers, peers, employers
Multiple means of representation
Multiple means of expression
Multiple means of engagement
Provide content or materials in different formats
e.g., for a presentation post slides, audio recording, lecture notes/outline, key media (charts, graphs), etc.
Give learners different ways to show what they know
Provide different levels of challenge
Let students check progress
Use different assessment methods
Motivate learners in different ways
tie concepts to real-world events or relevant topics
create collaboration opportunities
create self-assessment tools for learners
Let students submit work in different formats
Provide different assignments
Provide alternative questions
One of the easiest strategies: give students a choice of what questions they want to answer to show they understand a concept
Going further, you can create multiple assignments that students can use to show they reach the learning outcomes.
With a good rubric, you can allow learners to complete assignments in different ways.
Example: for a presentation, let learners submit a script, online presentation, podcast
One radical way to provide choice is to provide multiple assignments and to allow learners to submit in multiple formats.
What outcome or assignment do you want to assess online?
Is one assessment strategy enough to tell you that the students have really reached the outcome?
Putting it into practice
For the next 2 minutes, discuss the following with a neighbor:
How might you redesign an assessment that you already use so that it follows UDL principles?
Use multiple strategies?
Use one or more tools?
