Because Digital Writing Matters Week #2 Chapter 4 It's multimodal so how do I assess it?
Multimodal Is Complex...computers have dramatically expanded options for writers and have probably made writing, and learning to write, more complex (p. 21). And it certainly hasn't made the job of assessing any easier for the teacher! Between Modes: Assessing Student New Media Compositions by Madeleine Sorapure in
but technology can help too... (p ) 1. Collect extended writing over time (blogs, wikis, Google docs) 2. Help students write in multiple genres o different digital tools for different audiences o personal memoir = digital story 3. Appropriate rubrics continue to evolve (NWP Multimodal 2011) 4. Writing across content areas (see #2 & my hist. fiction) 5. Gives us avenues for teacher-student conversation about the writing.
Chapter 4 & Chapter 3 Because Digital Writing Matters
Define your goals and criteria for the project Use the... approach that focuses assessment on how effectively the project addresses a specific audience to achieve a specific purpose. Digital writing...does not mean that teachers must entirely change what they know and do in their classrooms; rather, teachers must explore how their strengths transfer to different tools and emerging genres (p. 14). Paula added this 1/12/2012
Define your goals and criteria for the project -- Ch 4 What goals/standards you want to achieve? -- Ch 4 What project will produce the desired achievement? -- Ch 3 What digital tools support the goals?
Technology and Standards p "Teaching writing is more than just the technical act of saving a document on a computer... more than just being able to...put words down in a certain order." Think about what it means to be "literate in a digital world." Techology literacy = 21st Century Skills = digital literacies = technology expectations
Technology and Standards Technology Literacy for Michigan defined: p 96 "the ability to responsibly use appropriate technology to communicate, solve problems, and access, manage, integrate, evaluate and create information to improve learning in all subject areas and to acquire lifelong knowledge and skills in the 21st Century."

Assessment - meet the writing goal? Digital records in portfolios.... ideal, but realistically Part "Knowledge" Framework, (Yancey, 2009) - p Self-Knowledge - individual writer's practice knowledge - baseline skill comparison and connection to topic 2. Content Knowledge - does writer know subject matter 3. Task Knowledge - use of process, strategy & voice 4. Judgement - ability to use self-reflection - best, weakest, why -- (Reflective Knowledge)
