  The TLT could:
  1. Provide resouces for instructional design which focuses upon assessment e.g. a site with rich assessment resources.
  2. Have Students submit an electronic portfolio/paper which could be sent to other students for evaluation.
  3. Suggestions of other ways to assess:
    1. Prescriptive assessment (test out of sections that mastery is demonstrated).
    2. Tailored remediation session
  4. Use of software with assessment modules: "i.e. Designer's Edge"

Assessment of Learning Effectiveness

Point of View: Assessing the Learning Effectiveness of Teachers/Faculty who are learning to teach with new technologies

  • Why is there a difference in assessing classroom teaching and online teaching and why is the standard different?
  • What do we mean by teaching with technology?
      Definitions
    1. Computer literate
    2. Capability to use tools to teach
  • What is the scope of using technology in the classroom?
    • Web based course or using email and/or forums and/or other modules
  • What is effectiveness in the classrooms?
  • What preparation is available to faculty to assist them in assessing learning effectiveness?

Collaborative can help by developing agreed upon definitions and criteria:

  1. Clearly developed continuum of skills exhibited by teachers teaching with technology
  2. Computer literacy (use of computer)
  3. Use of tools to teach
  4. What effective teaching is andragogy (adult learning)
  5. prepared faculty
