Using technology for self/peer assessment activities
October 4, 2012
Technology can create new opportunities for involving students in assessment, both of their own work and of their peers'. In this session, two faculty members will discuss how they have incorporated self and peer assessment in their classes, addressing questions such as:
- Why did you decide to incorporate self/peer assessment in this class?
- What tools are you using to facilitate the process?
- How did you prepare the students for the activities?
- What have you done or what do you plan to do to find out if your strategy is working?
Elaine Gale will discuss how she uses mobile devices to provide in-class opportunities for students to record and review their own and their classmates' signing skills. American Sign Language (ASL) is a visual language that depends on space and facial expressions to convey meaning. To increase their fluency in the language, students need to see their own signing. Elaine will describe an exercise in which students use mobile devices equipped with a video recording app to share video clips of their signing. Elaine will also discuss how she used Blackboard rubrics to assess student work and will give a brief demonstration of this new Blackboard tool.
