E-Assessment of, for and as Learning in the 21st Century
Professor Magdalena Mo Ching MOK (Co-Director, ARC; Chair Professor, PS)
With the introduction of computers and information technology in the classroom, there are many emerging opportunities for educators to enhance student learning. This project focuses attention on the opportunities offered by digital tools in computer-based learning environments for educational assessment, including summative assessment to evaluate student learning, formative assessment in which feedback is generated to inform students’ subsequent learning, and self-assessment whereby the learner makes judgment about their own learning progress. A number of sub-projects have been conducted between 2011 and 2014.
The projects benefitted around 5,000 local & overseas educators by the invention and promotion of assessment package; organization of training workshops, conferences, short courses and seminars; provision of consultation services; and development of new measurement scales.
In this sharing session, we will give the audience a general picture of the sub-projects while putting the focus on the design and findings of sub-project one, “Personal Best: Effective Use of Magical iPen for Self-directed English Learning.” (presentation PDF)
