Traditional Approaches to AI were designedfor the Analog Assessment Analog Digital Assessment Assessment Limited, high-stakes Frequent, varied opportunities for opportunities for assessment assessment Feedback: Feedback: comprehensive, but outcomes-specific, infrequent and slow frequent, fast
Emerging Environment for Assessment,Feedback, and LearningProliferating opportunities for learning beyond the classroom • Open Educational Resources (MOOCs, etc.) • Competency-based learning (prior learning, etc.) • Badges and alternative certificationsAssessment increasingly embedded in process of learning (rather thanseparated between “study” and “exams” • Learner analytics • Realtime feedback for learners and instructors • Adaptive or dynamic learning / mastery learning (e.g., OLI, Khan Academy)Proliferation of data on student performance and behavior • Data mining and predictive modeling • “Authentication” increasingly built in to process of teaching and learning online
Redefining Academic Integrity for theEmerging Learning Environment • Academic integrity = demonstrated student learning • Designed for digital assessment • Focused on mastery of learning outcomes • Integration and alignment of learning and academic integrity
Emergent Models• Your record of learning is who you are• Reflects changes over time with a dynamic record of learning (analytics, eportfolio)• Ongoing application of learning and collected artifacts, informal and formal (badges, certifications)• More collective and less individual learning (MOOCs, peer networks)• Engagement in learning is form of assessment
Competing Pressures Legacy approaches Emerging approaches • Regulatory pressures • Open learning resources • Demand for alternate certification • Proliferation of digital assessment and high-stakes testing • Explosion of data on learners • Institutional culture / resistance • Fast, frequent, continuous to change assessment and feedback • Faculty expectations • Needs of adult learners
Discussion• What else is on the horizon that will redefine institutional approaches to academic integrity?• What are some of the challenges to creating an approach to academic integrity that focuses on assessing the whole student?• How can an organization like WCET help?
