DML2012 - ECDemocratized

  1. 1. A DESIGN TO CHANGE ASSESSMENT: EVIDENCE CENTERED DESIGN & DEMOCRATIZING LEARNING Adam Ingram-Goble, Ben Shapiro, Ben Stokes, Yoon Jeon Kim, and Peter Wardrip adamaig@gmail.com www.ecdemocratized.com DML 2012
  2. 2. THE CURRENT STATE OF ASSESSMENT: EFFECTS OF NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND• Positives • Increased use of rubrics makes assessment more open • Increasing content alignment at both local and national levels • Disaggregation of data
  3. 3. THE CURRENT STATE OF ASSESSMENT: EFFECTS OF NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND• Positives • Increased use of rubrics makes assessment more open • Increasing content alignment at both local and national levels • Disaggregation of data• Negatives • Increased stress on everyone: School Admins, Teachers, and Students • Some Admins game the system by reclassifying students, encouraging them to skip school on test days, etc. • Some students drop out rather than confront the expected failure, or participate in something they don’t see the value of
  4. 4. INNOVATIVE COMBINATIONDemocratizing Evidence Centered Learning Design In Combination, We hope... • Students gain control in their learning • Assessment becomes openly accessible to both the Assessed and the Assessor(s) • Shifts debate on assessment to include creating value for the learner

  12. 12. iPad 7:11 PM The Rube Goldberg Machine: The Challenge EditOverview You are challenged to create a "mousetrap car" that can be entered into a classroom contest. The spring of a mousetrap can store a considerable amount of potential energy when it is pulled back and its tension is increased. When released, this energy can be transformed into the kinetic energy of movement, making the mousetrap the perfect "motor" for a homemade car.

  15. 15. THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING• Underlying design principles of ECDemocratized Assessment• An illustrative case of our idea• A few other things we are thinking about: • Game play mechanics around evidence collection and sharing • How would this integrate with other data sources?• How does yours differ?
