Assessment

"If we always do what we've always done, we will get what we've always got."


-Adam Urbanski
 


















Assessment in this course has two elements:

  1. An assessment of effort (Log of Learning Activities) that is based on completing tasks and not determined by criteria; and

  2. An assessment of capability (Portfolio of Learning) that is based on performance evidence as measured against set criteria.


Each module in the course provides opportunities to complete assessment of your learning, with some set requirements depending on course.

There are seven modules provided for Digital Pedagogies and seven modules for Educational Technologies and modules will be made available in the following schedule:

The first module* in each should be considered required as they cover the fundamentals of the course, with the remaining modules providing a mix of educational technologies and pedagogical approaches.

Each module contains details of assessment tasks at each level: Level 1 tasks are online quizzes, Level 2 tasks are relatively simple contribution activities generally involving showing evidence of having performed an activity (Level 1 and Level 2 activities form your Log of Learning Activities, Level 3 learning activities and Level 4 Advanced Learning Activities are more substantial assignments that have set requirements and criteria to be addressed (Level 3 and Level 4 activities form your Portfolio of Learning). In some cases modules will describe higher level activities that can be explored through future studies.


  • Level 1 and 2 assessment is by completion and contributes 50% to the marks for enrolled students. These levels assess your understanding of the course content and the development of relevant skills. 

  • Level 3 and 4 assessment receives a level of achievement and contributes 50% of the marks for enrolled students. These levels assess your initiative, interpretive and analytical ability and are assessed by tutors.
