This article, Where There’s a Willing Educator, There’s a Way on Edsurge is framed as a response to the pandemic, but, really it’s just about effective personalised assessment (as opposed to efficient volume processing).”
“Most have found that traditional modes of monitoring progress and improving academic performance do not suffice in this unique crisis. Students have been experiencing challenges with access to instructional content like never before. As such, the current educational climate requires unique considerations for assessing progress.”
I don’t think the experiences of the 3 leading teachers in the article reflect most teacher’s experiences which were more about making do, and struggling with the imposed limitations. It also doesn’t comment on the major limiting factors associated with these types of assessments – logistics and workload.
Having said that, the issues and principles like ownership, personal relevance and self reflection, are elements we should all be considering when designing assessment.
