  1. 1. TEFA<br />Technology Enhanced Formative Assessment<br />Presented by: Justin Long <br />
  2. 2. Goals of TEFA?<br />Motivate and focus student learning with question-driven instruction<br />2) Develop students’ understanding and scientific fluency with dialogical discourse<br />3) Inform and adjust teaching and learning decisions with formative assessment<br />4) Help students develop metacognitive skills and cooperate in the learning process with meta-level communication<br />
  3. 3. Question-driven instruction <br />Questions are used to set up fertile learning situations and to catalyze learning<br />Challenge the limits of the student, find the gaps and conceptual misunderstanding <br />Frames knowledge as tools and strategies to answer questions <br />Stimulates discussion within the classroom <br />
  4. 4. Ball A and ball B are both dropped from a height of 15ft at the exact same time. Ball A has a weight of 15lbs, ball B has a weight of 2.5lbs. What is true of ball A and ball B with respects to the force of gravity?A) Ball A experiences 6 times the force (from gravity) than ball B as it drops  B) Ball B experiences 6 times the force (from gravity) than ball A as it drops C) Gravitational force is equal for both ball A and ball B D) There are no forces acting on the balls <br />
  5. 5. The beaker is filled with 800ml with water and each rod is placed in the water to the red line on each rod. The densities of each rod are listed below. <br />Rod 1- D < water <br />Rod 2- D > water <br />Rod 3- D = water <br />1) How will the scale reading change when you add Rod 1 to the Beaker as specified above?<br />A) Nothing will change <br />B) The scale reading will go down a lot <br />C) The scale reading will go up a lot<br />D) The scale reading will go down a little <br />E) The scale reading will go up a little <br />
  6. 6. Dialogical Discourse<br />Clarify thought through the process of articulation and examination <br />Expose students different points of view and ways of thinking <br />Promote analysis and resolution of disagreements <br />Supply stimuli, context and tools for individual sense making<br />Provide practice in speaking the social language of science<br />
  7. 7. Formative Assessment<br />Making the students’ knowledge visible to the teacher <br />This optimizes the instructor’s teaching ability by allowing the instructor to change direction and focus of the topics<br />Allows for Agile Teaching <br />This requires accurate, detailed, and current information <br />
  8. 8. Meta-level Communication<br />Talk about talking, cognition, learning, and about the purpose of instructional experience. <br />Goal 1 – To improve students understanding of the these topics so they can become self aware learners <br />Goal 2 – Community Centered Learning Environments <br />This will lead to students making better decisions in accordance with learning. <br />
