Blended e Assessment

  1. 1. Blended e-Assessment: Capturing student learning
  2. 2. Same, Same; but Different
  3. 3. What this is. What this isn’t.A different way of thinking, Same, same; and not differentawareness and approach. thinking; status quo.Is a practical way of using the Throwing the baby out with thebest of what we currently do bathwater.and tweaking it a little with theaide of technology. Loading more on top of ourWorking smarter; not harder already busy workloads.
  4. 4. So…Do we want fear to stop us from moving forward?Or do we want to get stuck-in and have a go?Do we want to have information/data everywherethat we can’t keep track of?Or do we want to have a way of keeping it alltogether, so we can access it easily?Do we want to feel as though we aren’t quiteachieving what we want to?Or do we want to make a positive difference toour learners as well as the way we teach andassess?
  5. 5. Intentions of this workshopWe are charged with making OTJs in Numeracy and Literacy.• This workshop will showcase and assist us to further explore how we might optimize and integrate the use of technologies to capture evidence of student progress and achievement as a part of our formative assessment classroom practices.• It will also explore how technologies can be utilized within the assessment moderation process.• It will also explore how we might do so in a manner that actively involves both the student and their whanau.• Explore means of managing/storing ‘evidence’ for making an OTJ.
  6. 6. Procedure for this learning• Information on Formative Assessment• Information on OTJ Requirements• Teaching, then “playtime” with different eTools to assist us in capturing student learning in relation to the NZC Standards• Demonstration on ways of engaging whanau in the process.• Example of means of collating and storing assessment data.• Question time.
  7. 7. “Assessment is for thepurpose of improving student learning” NZC
  8. 8. Characteristics of Effective AssessmentBenefits studentsInvolves studentsSupports teaching and learning goals Is planned and communicated Is suited to the purpose Is valid and fair
  9. 9. What is Formative Assessment?
  10. 10. Knowledge of the Learner Learning ConversationsObservations Assessments OTJ
  11. 11. Making An Overall Teacher Judgment (OTJ)Making an OTJ involves drawing on andapplying the evidence gathered to aparticular point in time in order tomake an overall teacher judgementabout a student’s progress andachievement in relation to the NZCurriculum Standards.
  12. 12. Healthy OTJ Pyramid Tests/assessments Use sometimes Observations Use Often Use Most Learning Conversations
  13. 13. An OTJ also needs to made based on:What the student can do independently, most of the time.Cross text-type/strand evidenceMultiple sources of triangulated evidence.Cross curricular evidence.
  14. 14. It is not now adequate to keep all this information in our head; we need to have justifiable ‘evidence’.
  15. 15. But hang on a minute…
  16. 16. How are we going to manage all this?
  17. 17. Do we want to end up like this atthe end of each day??
  18. 18. We need to find a way of working smarter; not harder. Scrooge McDuck
  19. 19. FormativeAssessment Practices
  20. 20. Tools we will look at…
  21. 21. Wallwisher: An online noticeboard where people canshare information and ideas with others. Images, videosor audio links can be added to the wall.
  22. 22. What ICTs or eLearning tools areyou currently using within yourFormative Assessment Practices,and how are you using them?Eg: voice recordings using phone, StudyLadderAdd your contribution to the wallwisher
  23. 23. Take 3 mins to look through these examples andconsider how you could use Wallwisher to collateevidence of student learning and achievement. Shareyour ideas with the person next to you.A wiki showing different uses of Wallwisher inEducation32 interesting ways to use Wallwisher in theclassroomClick here to have a go at making your ownwallwisher.Add a comment with either audio, an image orvideo.
  24. 24. Twitter – micro bloggingTwitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging tool.Tweets can be sent (up to 140 characters + video or photolinks) via phone, instant messaging, or from a computerusing a third party application such as Tweetdeck orHootsuite.It has been used in High School contexts for students totext-in summarising notes around lessons or readings.Tweets can also be in the form of a question that studentsanswer. Alternatively students pose the questions based ontheir learning needs.Tweets can also be embedded into a class blog.Information on getting started with Twitter100 ways to use Twitter in Education
  25. 25. VoicethreadA collaborative,multimedia slideshow thatholds documents, media and videos.It allows people to navigate slides and leavecomments in 5 ways: voice (mic or phone),text, audiofile or video (via webcam).A voicethread can be shared with others forcollaboration.
  26. 26. Voicethread used FormativelyLets have a look at an exampleUse your handout to place where you think each example wouldsit in relation to the NZC Standards

  30. 30. A couple of tools for self andpeer feedback, or recordinglearning conversations.• Vocaroo• Jing• Wordle/Taxedo
  31. 31. VocarooA fabulously easy tool to use to record learning conversations,moderate running records, etc. Recordings can be easilydownloaded to MP3 without hassles. Have a little play with using it. Vocaroo.com
  32. 32. Lets have a play with usingvocaroo for running record moderation purposes. (see handout)
  33. 33. Jing can be used to:• record feedback on student learning for students to access later,• take a screenshot to share,• Record tutorials (similar to Khan Academy approach)• record learning conversations/conferencing,• Hyperlink or embed into other platforms eg: eportfolios.Nikole – maths example
  34. 34. www.wordle.net /www.tagxedo.com are sitesthat create a “word clouds” of any pasted text,with the highest frequency word appearing thelargest.
  35. 35. Play timeClick here to have a play in wordle… or herefor tagxedoTask:Copy each piece of student writing andplace it into the wordle (one at at time).What next step feedback would you give tothe student? (see next slide for writing)
  36. 36. Place each story into a wordle. What next steps wouldyou give the students?1:One morning I woke up and I was turned around in my bed. Then I fell off! I walkeddownstairs and I almost fell over my dog. Next I fell asleep in my weetbix and mybrother stole my toast!Then I had to walk to school because our car ran our of gas. I was late for schooland I got stuck outside in the rain! Guess what? I really didn’t like this day at all.2:You should never race a cheetah. Do you know why? Because you’ll always lose.That’s because cheetahs are very fast runners. They can run up to 75 miles perhour.The cheetah gets its food by running. But sometimes the lion takes over and grabsthe food. That’s mean!Cheetahs are carnivores. That means they eat meat. Their prey are gazelles androdents. The cheetah lives and finds food in Africa.The cheetah and lion eat each other. If the cheetah is weaker, the lion eats thecheetah, and it’s the same with the other.The cheetah has up to three to five babies. The cheetah has larger litters than othercats, but on average only two cubs live into adulthood. Cheetahs are amazing. Ihope you like cheetahs. I know I do!
  37. 37. Showing learning progressions inwriting.
  38. 38. Telescopic sentencesThis is a great tool that can be used within student writing tohelp them edit/extend their sentences. Information can then bekept using a hyperlink or “Jing” learning conversation to showlearning progression.Example with Ameila – via Jinghttp://ossroom1.blogspot.co.nz/2011/09/telescopic-text-model.htmlClick here to have a go at creating one of your own
  39. 39. Etherpad (no log-ins required)This is an online collaborative writing tool thatallows for “chat”/”feedback”Let’s have a look at an example of it being used.You could also have one pad per student over aterm to show their writing progress.Let’s have a look at how we make an Etherpad
