    Comparative Pairs Assessment and e-Portfolios Comparative Pairs Assessment and e-Portfolios Presentation Transcript

    • Assessing e-Portfolios using the Law of Comparative Judgement Matt Wingfield Managing Director – TAG Developments
    • Setting the Scene Project eScape
      • Utilised MAPS e-portfolio - enabling teachers to create, deliver, manage and assess project based controlled assessments of GCSE coursework ;
      • Each student is given a portable device (PDA, Fizzbook Spin);
      • These devices are connected wirelessly to either a web-based or locally hosted e-portfolio system;
      • The students receive instructions on what they should do for each activity directly to their device;
      • As each activity is completed, the work, comments and evidence is dynamically captured by the e-portfolio to be viewed by the teacher.
      • UK pilot project, Project eScape, run by TERU Goldsmiths College, University of London and funded by the Department for Education;
    • Setting the Scene Project eScape … .the trace left behind from purposeful activity
    • Setting the Scene Project eScape
        • Real-time capture of student evidence – progressive storyboard format;
        • Ideal for supporting areas that involve project work & Assessment for Learning;
        • BUT – how do we assess the work for subjective areas like creativity, team work or problem solving?
    • Assessment vs. Evaluation Comparative Pairs Assessment
      • Teachers and Assessment:
        • Teachers are good at :
          • Relative Judgements;
          • Ranking work.
        • Teachers are not good at :
          • Absolute Judgements;
          • Scoring.
        • This is because it is very difficult not to personalise judgements.
    • Assessment vs. Evaluation Comparative Pairs Assessment
      • What is Comparative Pairs?
      • Measuring without scales;
      • Based on Rasch/Thurstone - Law of Comparative Judgement ;
      • More recent work from Alastair Pollitt at the University of Cambridge;
      • Let’s try Comparative Pairs…
    • Assessment vs. Evaluation Comparative Pairs Assessment portfolio A portfolio B TAG has created a web-based comparative pairs engine, that facilitates highly accurate paired assessment of e-portfolios for the first time on a national scale!
    • The Comparative Pairs Engine dynamically refines the ranking of the student work through a series of judging rounds. What emerges is a collective professional consensus of an expert group of judges. Produces a reliability coefficient of 0.95 Assessment vs. Evaluation Comparative Pairs Assessment
      • UK:
        • Continued research by TERU (Apprenticeships, Diplomas, SLTs)
        • Bath Spa University & AstraZeneca Science Teaching Trust to support science & technology in Primary schools
      • Scotland:
        • SQA / LTS for formative assessment to provide continued evidence of capability across transition years (11 – 12 years)
      • Ireland:
        • Limerick University to support Teacher Training
      • Israel:
        • ORT - pilot of school-based examinations – esp. practical science
      • Western Australia:
        • Curriculum Council piloting the school leaving exams in Engineering/LOTE/IT and Physical Education
