Creating meaningful assessments using p bworks (blue)
Group 5 –Alfonso, Rachel, and Karla
Provide examples of assessments Utilize a user-friendly platform (Pbworks) Illustrate how to use Pbworks Provide sources for digital/online assessment support
The main goal of our project is to illustrate that effective assessments can be produced for online/digital learning. The central theme is that effective online/digital assessments provide opportunities for greater collaboration and feedback, as well as higher levels of learning.
Provided tutorials for setting up assessments Compiled resources to assist with implementation Provided instructions for how to set-up Pbworks Created our own Group 5 Pbworks portfolio
Transition : Initial Project to the Final ObjectThe Initial Project : The objective was to design anassessment using a Power Point presentation todeliver the instruction. The idea was to make thePP interactive, so the users can select actionbuttons in the PP. The project had some problemswhile recording audio, and we tried to “lock up “the slides, but the transfer from PP to the MP4artifact failed. One can’t transfer the “hotspots”and its functionality to images.
Transition ( Continue)The Final Object: Our team created a newperspective for the final object. A tutorial program tohelp users to create their own assessments online.Based on the Pbworks platform, my team and Iselected the most important features; in order to helpusers to create their own designs, we also revealedthe most powerful capabilities of the site. Thetutorials (3) are different but they cover most of thefeatures. The design was in PP as planned, but usingCamtasia Studio 7.1 my team solved the audioproblems (because one can record audio w/pause inone or more slides, or continuously).
Group Collaboration: Team workAs a group we started with the wrong foot. To select ourtopic, we couldn’t visualize the big picture at once. Aftersome discussions, and several emails, we agreed toresearch information about “assessments.” Afterwards,we selected only (4) related articles about our subjectmatter, but we hit the wall when we found that face-to-face assessments are ineffective in multimediaenvironments. Moreover, our team started a new quest,this time our focus was towards educators andinstructional designers. The effort paid off very soon,because based on the new findings, we realized that weneeded to select our learning environment, and deliverymethod. Finally, we decided to design our project usingpbworks.
