    1. 1. IPADS AND E-ASSESSMENT Impact on efficiency and convenience
    2. 2. PROJECT AIMS <ul><li>Aim: to compare and contrast the use of the Ipad for e- feedback across a range of assessment tasks for students on a range of modules. </li></ul><ul><li>Modules are taken as part of either a pre-registration midwifery degree programme or a post-registration nursing degree programme or as stand alone CPD. </li></ul>
    3. 3. OBJECTIVES <ul><li>To assess the impact of the use of the Ipad on efficiency (i.e. little wasted effort) of the assessment feedback process when compared to traditional methods of feedback </li></ul><ul><li>To assess the impact of the use of the Ipad in terms of convenience (ease of use) when compared to traditional methods of feedback </li></ul>
    4. 4. ASSESSMENT TASKS <ul><li>Critical review of professional development summary/plan (formative) Year 1, BSc (Hons) Nursing Studies </li></ul><ul><li>Critical Review of professional development. Year 1, BSc (Hons) Nursing Studies </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Programme Planning Proposal. Year 1, BSc (Hons) Nursing Studies </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Key Skills Reflective Essay (1,000 words). Year 1, BSc (Hons) Midwifery </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
    5. 5. ASSESSMENT TASKS (CONT’D) <ul><li>5000 words written essay. Stand alone Post-registration Nursing CPD module </li></ul><ul><li>Reflective Account of OSCE (1,000 words).

Year 1 BSc (Hons) Midwifery </li></ul>
    6. 6. RESULTS: E ASSESSMENT – GENERAL POSITIVE <ul><li>No need to attend to submit </li></ul><ul><li>Developmental learning from use of Turnitin </li></ul><ul><li>Opportunities to submit drafts via OASIS+ </li></ul><ul><li>Easy access to submitted work as moderator </li></ul><ul><li>No need to go to student office </li></ul><ul><li>The 10, weekly on-line submissions created a vibrancy in the classroom as students spoke about their learning and what they had submitted on each log. </li></ul><ul><li>The 10 weekly logs reduced student drop out. </li></ul>
    7. 7. RESULTS: E ASSESSMENT – GENERAL NEGATIVE <ul><li>Not it easy to read the feedback sheets. </li></ul><ul><li>I had to request that the feedback be re-produced on marking sheets where I could clearly see what mark was been given to each of the marking criteria . This delay had a knock on effect of delaying feedback to students. </li></ul>
    8. 8. THE USE OF THE IPAD – USER COMMENTS <ul><li>Ability to use a drop box and down load scripts on to the IPAD made it easier to read long documents on screen . </li></ul><ul><li>Also then able to have Audacity and marking criteria on lap top but then issues around portability </li></ul><ul><li>Need 3G rather than wifi. Could not use anywhere other than home or on Hendon Campus </li></ul><ul><li>No flash so no Turnitin access on IPAD </li></ul>
    9. 9. COMMENTS CONT’D <ul><li>It took a long time to get to grips with </li></ul><ul><li>Needed mini tutorial, download an apple account and upload apps including Apple’s version of Word. </li></ul><ul><li>IPAD use could make e-assessment a more mobile process but it is worth considering the 3G i-pads. </li></ul><ul><li>The i-pad has a very easy to read screen, a good back light and splits pages into manageable, readable sections. </li></ul><ul><li>Training would definitely be needed by anyone new to apple. </li></ul>
    10. 10. COMMENT’S CONT’D <ul><li>I did not find the Ipad of benefit to me in the assessment process. </li></ul><ul><li>It is only beneficial if you have on line access, therefore no benefit to me on University premises I was able to use my normal computer. </li></ul><ul><li>Marking off site was not an option as I do not have internet access. </li></ul>
    11. 11. EFFICIENCY? <ul><ul><li>Faster access to Oasis+ </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Time needed to access Turnitin on lap top then download a set of scripts to drop box before opening on the IPAD </li></ul><ul><li>Yes </li></ul><ul><li>No </li></ul>
    12. 12. CONVENIENCE? <ul><ul><li>Not needing to carry heavy dissertations/laptop </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>E reader function on IPAD convenient </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Could not even use in my office at AW so had to wait until I was at home to use with wifi </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Less convenient for me without internet access off site </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Yes </li></ul><ul><li>No </li></ul>
    13. 13. RECOMMEND? <ul><li>The 3G i-pad would be highly efficient as it has wide network coverage and is faster than traditional wi-fi’d lap tops. </li></ul><ul><li>In terms of health & safety, it would be preferable to the traditional laptop as lighter and the screen brighter. </li></ul><ul><li>For reading long docs on screen – implications for dissertation marking </li></ul><ul><li>Can’t say, it wasn’t beneficial to me but that isn’t to say it wouldn’t be to others. </li></ul><ul><li>Yes </li></ul><ul><li>No </li></ul>
