Evaluating Technology to Enhance Assessment
Assessment in the Digital Era
Assessing With Technology
Nancy, Beth, Joe and Joni
Available Technologies for Assessment of Learning
Collect, manage, and report data related to student learning outcomes assessment. It can range from Adding in technology to designing assessment in a digital age

Involve learners in the design of assessments and feedback utilize the ability of technology to assist in instruction while at the same time assessing needs of the learner as in “assistments”
Blending instruction and assessment. Uses data as an indicator to what additional support for learning is needed.

Give students more authentic tasks that require students to manipulate the world to explore a topic. (Science ASSISTments,
WISE and Phet)

Offers a way to archive what the student has learned. Evidence of learning can be shared and veiwed through a variety of media types.

Blogs are natural tools for reflection and self-assessment.
Helps to improve personal communication, and is a way to archive learning, which helps to show growth over time.

Why Do We Assess?

How Can Technology Enhance Assessment?
There are many ways in which Technology can support assessment . Technology can aid and enhance assessment from the administration of individual tests and assignments to the management of assessment across a school district or other institution. It can also provide assistance from automatically marked on-screen tests to tools to support human marking and feedback. "Clearly, though, for technology-enhanced assessment to be effective, pedagogically sound developments need to be supported by robust and appropriate technology, within a supportive institutional or departmental context.” (JISC)

When speaking about 'Technology-enhanced assessment' we are referring to the wide range of ways in which technology can be used to support assessment and feedback. It includes on-screen assessment, often called
Does the technology have elements of the following:
Interactive tools like voting devices find out what students are thinking, check for understanding, and provide a high level of engagement. Examples are Clicker6 and PollDaddy

Utilize the ability of technology to assist in instruction while at the same time assessing the needs of learners
Dialogue & Correspondence- Users can receive feedback and share thoughts through forums, blogs, community posts etc.

Authenticity- Users can participate in vitrual simulations to help practice real world skills.

Immediacy- Rapid feedback helps to corret misconceptions and inform practices

Self-Evaluation/Regulation- Reflection and collection of evidence can generate ownership of learning

Explore the power of embedded assessment technologies such as simulations, virtual worlds, games and cognitive tutors can be used to engage learners while assessing complex skills

Can be used not only for assesment but also for self reflection of the learning.

Although students' digital products are often impressive, a portfolio of student work should be linked to an analytic framework if it is to serve assessment purposes.

The portfolio reviewer needs to know:
what competencies the work is intended to demonstrate
what the standard or criteria for competence are in each area,
what aspects of the work provide evidence of meeting those criteria.

Social Media Sites
Immediacy- The students receive instant feedback for correct/incorrect answers.
Authenticity- Allows students to pactice reading skills witihin virtual worlds.
Provides norm-referenced reporting for teachers to see how students are performing within the context of their class, as well as age group.

Immediacy- Provides instant feedback for students
Self Evaluation- Students can view themselves and reflect on the learning in which they partake
Authenticity- Learning is "portable" and can be done anywhere
Technology Enhanced Assessment
For All Rubrics
This software is free for all teachers and allows you to import, create and score rubrics on your iPad, tablet or smartphone. You can collect data offline without internet access, compute scores automatically and print or save the rubrics as a PDF or spreadsheet.
Dialogue- This technology allows teachers to communicate expectations and criteria for success
Immediacy- Students can access their scores instantaneously
Self Evaluation- Students can use this tool to evaluate whether or not they have met the goals of the assignment
E-Portfolios can be used to upport Self Monitoring and E-Portfolio Development
Blogs and wikis can play a vital part of formative assessment. "When we do a project like our virtual museum wiki, I get students to read and comment on each others' work before they submit it for marking. That helps them enhance the final work." (Hoare, 2008)
