Task 2: Assessing online contributions (no more than 1 hour)
This week, our plenary discussion focuses on the assessment of students' online contributions. Specifically we ask you:
If your participation in this course were to be assessed, how should it be?
In deciding how you will contribute to this plenary activity, you might like to consider some of the following questions:
- What assessment criteria would you use?
- Would you look for quality or quantity of postings? Both? Neither? Why?
- How would you assess contributions to a collaborative online task?
- What differences do you find between assessment of online work and more traditional assessment of students' work?
Aim to post your response early in the week, to give others time to read, digest and respond to it.
