Effective Assessment in a Digital Age

Various authors, Jisc, [Sept] 17, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

What does effective assessment look like in the digital age? This post links to a guide to technology-enhanced assessment and feedback (PDF, 64 pages) as well as a podcast. There's a lot of good stuff here, including for example an articulation of four major perspectives on assessment: associative, constructivist, social constructivist, and situative (see the diagram below). This is an excellent report, full of examples, case studies, and practical guides. More case studies are available here, including for example assessing my own professional performance. The podcast is the latest in the series of JISC podcasts.
