2 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | slide 2 Aims of project To facilitate informed decision making by FEIs and HEIs about adoption of e-assessment for both formative and summative purposes (with the emphasis on the former) To provide FEIs and HEIs with a starter guide addressing the effective and sound implementation of e-assessment, with links to further information To update the JISC community on recent findings from JISC projects on e-assessment development and research To complement recent JISC guides: Effective Practice with e- Portfolios (2008) and Effective Practice in a Digital Age (2009)

3 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | slide 3 Effective Practice with e-Assessment Published in 2007 informed by an e-Assessment Roadmap project and series of case studies An overview of the current drivers and barriers to e- assessment in post-16 education, covering summative (or high stakes) assessment, formative (or low stakes) assessment and diagnostic testing Incorporated JISC/QCA Glossary of e-assessment terms Attempted a development timeline Offered case studies under three perspectives: learner, practitioner and institution Highlighted the challenges still experienced under each perspective

4 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | slide 4 Dilemmas….

5 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | slide 5 And challenges Greater knowledge and understanding of learners views of assessment in HE (NSS) and of learners experience of e-learning (JISC e-Learning programme) Increased focus on student-centred teaching and learning strategies: impact on assessment Greater range of technologies empower both practitioners and learners e-Supported assessment techniques are now more within the reach of the technically less expert practitioner In a Web 2.0 world, evidence is emerging of greater use of some form of technology-supported assessment practice by a wider variety of individuals Increasing range of locations in which assessment can occur effectively eg with the support of mobile technologies

6 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | slide 6 Focus on effective assessment design and delivery Learners learn more effectively when: –They are actively engaged –Their existing capabilities are brought into play –They are appropriately challenged –They have opportunities for dialogue with tutors and peers –They have opportunities for formative assessment –They receive timely and effective feedback –They understand the criteria for assessment –They have opportunities for self- assessment and reflection

7 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | slide 7 Focus on effective assessment design and delivery Teachers teach more effectively when: –They have access to results of formative assessments –When assessment designs capture learners attention and time –Learners develop one anothers understanding –Learners act on peer and tutor feedback –Learners can build on what is learned

8 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | slide 8 Consultation activity 1 In two groups, discuss which of the following you would like to see in a new JISC guide on e-assessment Group 1: Discussion of what constitutes effective assessment design Discussion of issues related to the use of technology in diagnostic, formative and summative assessment Principles of effective practice in the use of technology in assessment and feedback Glossary of terms Group 2: Case studies illustrating different perspectives eg learner, practitioner and institutional Case studies illustrating the embedded use of different types of technology in degrees of complexity Case studies representing different contexts eg first-year HE, work-based assessment, vocational and academic courses

9 Joint Information Systems Committee 01/04/2014 | slide 9 Consultation activity 2 In the same groups, share examples of good practice in using technology for assessment and feedback. These may encompass diagnostic, formative or summative assessment Identify principles for the effective application of technology to assessment and feedback JISC resources on e-assessment
