1 Diana Bajzek, Associate Director Office of Technology for Education Carnegie Mellon University Gordon Rule Professor Department of Biological Sciences Additional authors: Judy Brooks, William Jerome, Marsha Lovett, John Rinderle, Candace Thille Assessment and Learning Two Sides of the Same Coin.

2 Outline Content Delivery & Analysis of student responses. –OLI – Online Learning Initiative –DDL – Digital Dashboard for learning Simulator/Animation environment. –Development of authentic simulator environment –Embedding in OLI Coupling of simulator environment to assessment. –Detached –Proximal –Associated –Tightly integrated Reporting of student data by OLI/DDL.

3 Carnegie Mellon University Office of Technology for Learning Digital Dashboard for Learning (DDL): Unique feedback tool for instructors and students. OLI: Research project creating exemplary online courses using the best information the learning sciences have to offer. Working in courses which are part of Open Learning Initiative -OLI Real courses, some fully online, some blended - all publicly available. These courses are designed by teams of learning sciences researchers, technologists, and domain experts. OLI courses provide rich interactive learning environments with comprehensive activity logging tools.

4 The Course Design Triangle Tasks that provide feedback on students’ knowledge and skills Contexts and activities that foster students’ active engagement in learning Descriptions of what students should be able to do at the end of the course

12 Design of Animations/Simulations 1.Select concept. 2.Static image. 3.Movie clip. 4.Simulation 5.Student Interaction Glucose Transport into Liver Glucose Cell Membrane Hexose Kinase (G → G-P) Glucose Transporter Outside Inside

13 Design of Animations/Simulations Glucose Transport into Liver Outside Inside Cast are given x i, v i. Follow Newton’s laws & instructor defined rules. Simulator Environment: Glucose: Can’t cross the membrane, unless it encounters its transporter. Glucose Transporter: Only moves glucose across the membrane Hexokinase: Enzyme that only binds glucose. Bound glucose converted to G-P Membrane: Nothing goes through, in this example. Hexose_kinase.html

15 Providing Context for Simulations:

16 Disconnected Assessment:

17 Proximal Assessment

18 Associated Assessments

19 Coupled Assessments Context given within assessment. Student prompted to interact with the simulator to gain information to answer question. Student input passed to simulator, changing its state. Simulator can be used to drive data output. Question posed: Hints available Individual feedback for answers. Student response & assessment activity can control simulator environment. Control of flow is possible as the student progresses through exercise. Inhibitors_simulator.html
