“ often did not address intended learning outcomes”
those who wish to cheat will always be one step ahead; better to “build and maintain supportive and effective relationships with learners”; design negotiated, collaborative assessment tasks
often poorly constructed; teachers underestimate the skills and effort required to design good quiz questions
Is a video created by an apprentice using POV technology somewhere in remote Australia sufficient to prove that s/he is competent at fitting service gauges? WHAT CONSTITUTES FAIR AND VALID E- ASSESSMENT? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrGbfYkuu8E
Are voice recordings of a student engaged In a scenario posed online on a voice discussion board enough to show a lecturer, and auditor, that they have the customer relationship skills required for a unit of competence in hospitality? WHAT CONSTITUTES FAIR AND VALID E-ASSESSMENT?
WHAT CONSTITUTES FAIR AND VALID E- ASSESSMENT? Is an assignment conducted entirely in a Learning Management System (Blackboard, Janison, Moodle) where there is no paper record of the task, or the assessment activity, acceptable?
Is a video created by a student of one of his peers to demonstrate their competence in the safe use of hand and power tools sufficient evidence for an auditor? Is a video, or photographs, created by a student on their mobile phone showing the various stages of cutting someone’s hair sufficient to demonstrate competence?

How do I know that written report is the student’s work? I know because it is one piece of several pieces of assessment. I know in particular because I have developed a relationship with that student. I talk to them by mail and phone, and also I talk to their employer when I can. Any good teacher seeks such validation.”
Our philosophy determines how we perceive and deal with our preferred teaching methods – which includes how (or if) we choose and use e-learning technologies. (http://www.aupress.ca/books/120146/ebook/04_Anderson_2008_Kanuka-Online_Learning.pdf)
Give your students the opportunity to create media for assessments and assignments. You don’t need to know how to create movies, podcasts, etc, but you do need to be aware of what options are out there that may exploit students’ abilities with new technologies.
