  • From constructivist research to formative

    1. 1. From constructivist research to formative e-assessment. Terry Russell & Linda McGuigan <ul><li>Our approach to formative e-assessment has evolved from constructivist research into pedagogy & learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Our several projects address the research question: How might ICT support a pedagogy in which teaching, learning and (e-)assessment become seamless, where learners are empowered to share the agenda and take ownership of their own learning? </li></ul><ul><li>We envisage a complex and systemic solution involving: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>classroom technology (IWBs & mobile devices) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>24/7 learner access to ICT </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Digital repositories (MLE/VLE, e-portfolios etc.) </li></ul></ul>Centre for Research in Primary Science and Technology University of Liverpool

    3. 3. Becta ‘digital creativity’ project example: multimedia & IWB for peer assessment Centre for Research in Primary Science and Technology University of Liverpool
    4. 4. Formative e-assessment mediated by mobile devices (‘educational digital assistants’). <ul><li>The sample in this small study is drawn from five schools in three LAs, each with whole class sets of EDAs. </li></ul><ul><li>Learners have 24/7 access to devices. </li></ul><ul><li>Two-year study as children move Y4/5 to Y5/6. </li></ul><ul><li>Approaches include the collection of video recorded instances of real time use, questionnaires and interview. </li></ul><ul><li>Informants include children, teachers and parents. </li></ul><ul><li>Data reveals ways in which children’s ownership, control and reflection on learning might be supported. </li></ul>Centre for Research in Primary Science and Technology University of Liverpool
    5. 5. Infrastructural support for storing, organising and planning on the basis of learners’ digital products. ( Welsh Assembly Government project. ) <ul><li>A project to develop a multimedia formative assessment profiling system </li></ul><ul><li>Development of accessible Teacher online bi-lingual database offering multimedia storage capacity for learners’ outputs </li></ul><ul><li>Database structured to reflect curriculum areas (Thinking Skills) </li></ul><ul><li>In-built structure maps learner progression to Skills Framework </li></ul><ul><li>Functionality invites formative & summative narrative commentaries </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Next steps’ and ‘Best Fit’ teacher judgements recorded </li></ul><ul><li>Considerations of possible future learner and parental access </li></ul><ul><li>Manageable and flexible semi-automated report generation. </li></ul>Centre for Research in Primary Science and Technology University of Liverpool http://www.cripsat.org.uk/currentprojects/?page_id=7
