Assessment and feedback are critical drivers of student learning but they are demanding in terms of staff time and resources. The ILTA 2013 survey indicated that teachers struggled with increased workloads and less time. This innovative workshop will demonstrate how to easily make formative assessment an integral part of the learning process by creating technology rich experiences to engage learners.
Good assessment uses multiple measures of student performance (Paloff, 2009) and this interactive format will expose the participants to many different tools they can use to assess students in and out of their classrooms. The objective of this session is that the audience will have hands on experience with a variety of tools and enable participants to vote on their favourite.
The audience will see and evaluate eight assessment tools for the classroom. We will have 2 rounds of voting until one assessment tool is left standing.
Round 1 – Participants participate in 3 pre-set quizzes utilising Kahoot, Mentimeter and Quizizz
Using Zeetings the audience will vote on their preferred tool. The top two tools will make it to the final round.
Participants will review a Zaption video quiz and vote via Plickers on a question set.
Using Zeetings the audience will vote on their preferred tool. The top tool will make it to the final round.
Final three tools are posted to a Padlet Wall with supporting documentation. Participants vote via Answergarden to crown a winner!
Participants will need an Internet enabled device to join in!
