Self-assessment. Discuss!

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

Whether or not you’re coming to our seminar ‘Self-assessment: stratgies and software to stimuate learning’ on 11th June, there are lots of things worthy of discussion.

Many of the speakers have provided links that you might like to look at:

Gwyneth Hughes on Ipsative Assessment

Tony Gardner-Medwin on Certainty-based Marking and CBM in Moodle

Peerwise (Paul Denny is in New Zealand so we will be showing a video) and a JISC-funded project that is evaluating the use of Peerwise at Edinburgh University.

Jon Rosewell on ‘Assessing with confidence’

And, from Phil Butcher et al at the Open University, ‘eAssessment at the Open University with open source software.’

Self-assessment seminar

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

We have funding from the HEA for a seminar on self-assessment that we (Tony Gardner-Medwin and me) are running at the OU in Milton Keynes  on 11th June 2012.

It’s a really interesting topic and we have some excellent speakers lined up. How does testing affect learning – for good or ill? What part does ipsative assessment have to play? How about certainty-based marking? And there will be an update on the Moodle quiz engine. Click on OU_prog  for the  full programme or on http://www.ucl.ac.uk/~ucgbarg/OU_workshop.htm for more information (including booking information).

Do come!
