    1. 1. CREATIVE APPROACHES TO ASSESSMENT AND FEEDBACK USING ICT IN THE HIGH SCHOOL CLASSROOM Lorinda Bruce | ASV eLearning Development Officer Scott Westray | VCE English Teacher Gilson College Link to this presentation: http://goo.gl/lL1ubQ
    2. 2. GROUP DISCUSSION What is the purpose of assessment? What kinds of assessment do you use? What is the purpose of feedback? What kinds of feedback do you give your students? How do they give you feedback?
    3. 3. WHAT IS ASSESSMENT? What is the primary purpose of assessment? To improve the learning of students and the teaching capability of teachers? Assessment "Comes from the Latin verb ‘assidere’ meaning ‘to sit with’. In assessment, one should sit with the learner. This implies it is something we do with and for students and not to students (Green, 1998)
    4. 4. WHAT IS FEEDBACK? The challenge is to provide feedback that students can access, understand and use to inform their studies and future performances. To achieve this Boud and associates (2010) claim feedback should be: A. Informative and supportive to encourage positivity towards learning; B. Timely, allowing feedback to be used to inform other learning and work; C. Frequent and specific enough to guide students learning and work.
    5. 5. WHY SHOULD I USE ICT FOR FEEDBACK AND ASSESSMENT? Organisation (Folders, tabs, labels, notebooks) Track Progress (See progress live, check revision history) Collaborative (Peer editing, students can respond to and edit comments) Versatile, accessible Cloud based/does not get lost Streamline/save time
    7. 7. HOW DO I KEEP FEEDBACK MANAGEABLE USING ICT? Organised/Paperless/Timely/Frequen t/Specific/Manageable Look at changing your assessment tasks Develop or use existing electronic rubrics/marking guides. Rubric Generator: Rubistar Develop or use existing electronic quizzes, which can provide instant feedback
    8. 8. PROVIDING TIMELY FEEDBACK The comment feature: Microsoft Office, Google Docs, Presenter notes in Google Docs presentations. PDF text editing tools. Not using Google docs? Have students submit their work to you digitally using the LMS at your school or through your through DROPitTOme portal that sends the docs directly to your Dropbox account and use the traditional commenting feature in Office Podcast your feedback. Use comments sections of YouTube/blogs/wikis for comments/self/peer reviews
    9. 9. TIMELY FEEDBACK Pull up any assessment item on your screen and create a screencast as you go through their assessment. Provide specific and detailed feedback on each part. Email the screencast back to students for them to watch and rewatch. http://goo.gl/DQCPO Use Evernote to create audio notes. Create a public link and send it to the student. Create audio feedback in Google docs with https://kaizena.com/ Computer assisted testing. Use your LMS (Blackboard/Moodle). Apps such as Socrative, Quizlet. Use Google docs/forms
    10. 10. ORGANISATION IN GOOGLE DOCS Clear folders/file structure Create a template for the assessment Name the doc in a systematic way (LorindaBruce_Map Readings_Yr9B) Set sharing settings to ‘anyone with link can view’ Share link/student makes copy of template/renames and shares with you
    11. 11. PLAGIARISM Prevention better than the cure Create assessment tasks that are creative/open ended rather than Know students well so that you know what they are capable of Formative marks allocated for draft process using Google docs etc.
    12. 12. ICT TOOLS FOR PLAGIARISM Search Google and Google Scholar. How to use Google search more effectively: http://goo.gl/FLDcJ Turnitin.
