Tools to Enhance Assessment in Moodle Tools to Enhance Assessment in Moodle Presentation Transcript

  • Tools to enhance Assessment in Moodle Matt Wingfield Managing Director – TAG Developments Paul Langdon Head of ICT - Oldham Hulme Grammar Schools
  • The evolution of TAG’s e-assessment solutions
    • Portfolio Builder (1997) – developed by TAG in partnership with TERU specifically for The London Borough of Newham and Apple;
    • e-scape (2004 - present) – Ground breaking pilot project for TERU, BECTA/DCSF, and several UK awarding bodies – led to LiveAssess.
    • Red Pen Tool (2010 - present) – Highly intuitive, award winning, on-screen marking tool for digital coursework evidence .
    • MAPS (2001 - present) – Multi award-winning Formative and Summative Assessment ePortfolio solution for curriculum & qualification coursework;
    • There are 4 key problems when it comes to marking digital files:
    • How do we view all the different file types without lots of software?
    • Files can be very large – e.g. PowerPoint?
    • How do we actually mark/annotate the files without changing the work?
    • How do we track different users’ annotations clearly?
    Marking/Annotating Digital Files The Challenges
  • An award winning Web 2.0 on-screen marking tool called the ‘Red Pen Tool’ for marking and annotating any digital coursework file;
    • The Benefits:
      • Mark and annotate a variety of file types completely online;
      • No need for a multitude of software - just a Flash plug-in;
      • Does not alter the work;
      • Links to mark schemes and assessment criteria;
      • Provision for student self, peer, teacher and verifier assessment.
    Marking/Annotating Digital Files Introducing Red Pen Tool
  • TAG has just released a new version of the Red Pen Tool that will allow users to annotate and mark-up video and audio files:
    • The Benefits:
      • Same interface design as existing version;
      • Intelligent switching between interfaces;
      • Automatically converts files to a streaming format;
      • Allows the user to ‘book mark’ the file with an annotation and assessment criteria.
    Marking/Annotating Digital Files Introducing Red Pen Tool – version 3
  • Case Study – Red Pen Tool for Moodle Oldham Hulme Grammar School
    • Using Moodle to support work at KS3 & 4;
    • Found that there was still too much printing, especially for marking work;
    • They started using Red Pen Tool in February 2011;
    • Primarily using the Red Pen Tool to support coursework for GCSE ICT (Module 2: controlled assessment - WJEC)
    • Proved to be a huge success and as a result they are planning to extend use this coming year.
  • Case Study – Red Pen Tool for Moodle Oldham Hulme Grammar School
    • The students use it by default now – they really like the quick and contextual feedback;
    • The teachers love it as it saves time, and gets the students motivated;
    • It’s also saving the school money!
    • ‘ Red Pen Tool has the potential to be the most useful bit of software I’ve bought over the past two or three years and at a sensible price too’
    • Paul Langdon – Head of ICT
  • ‘ Awesome’ ‘ Red Pen Tool works a treat. The pupils also like the ability to self assess which is also good news for me.’ Ivan Langton, Budehaven Community School ‘ The Red Pen tool has solved all of our issues with marking digital work as now the work and the comments/marks come together on the same screen, displaying these in the context of the work just like in any other subject’s exercise book.’ ‘ Red Pen Tool provides a platform for Assessment for Learning: a pupil’s comments and the teacher's marking will enable the pupil to see what they have to do to make progress and then keep track of their progression.’ Mark Harrison, Sinfin Community College Marking/Annotating Digital Files Red Pen Tool – what existing customers think

    Red Pen Tool in Moodle Let’s have a go at using it!
    • When supporting collaborative coursework or project based learning we want to:
      • See evidence of the whole process from beginning to end;
      • See evidence of the contributions of all group members and how this influences individual and group learning;
      • Capture evidence dynamically as it happens;
      • Provide a level playing field for all learners.
    Capturing Project Based Learning The Challenges
    • How does it work:
      • The teacher uses an activity authoring tool to define the content and number of steps within the project;
      • The students access the activity through a web-based client (on or offline);
      • Evidence is captured on the fly using in-built tools, including:
        • text & drawing capture;
        • photo & video capture;
        • audio capture; and
        • mind maps .
      • The Evidence is dynamically sent back to a ‘storyboard’ portfolio for review.
    Capturing Project Based Learning Introducing LiveAssess
      • Real-time capture of student evidence – progressive storyboard format;
      • Controlled assessment – structured, timed, no need for other software;
      • Ideal for supporting the assessment of 21 st Century Skills;
    Capturing Project Based Learning Introducing LiveAssess
      • LiveAssess is a Web 2.0 module that can be added to any web-based Virtual Learning Environment, and will be available for Moodle during late 2011/early 2012.
      • The VLE module is available from £1.20 per user, per year (site licence)
