Tuesday, March 19 12:00-12:15 PM Location: Wilshire B
Abstract: Online assessment is always an important portion in the design and teaching of an online course. Very often, the contents to be assessed would require different assessment methods. Technology tools can be used to perform the online assessment. This paper (at a poster session) will introduce our experiences in a western state university to use Web conference and a content analysis program MAXQDA to assess the quality of visual productions that teacher education students created in an online course. The design, methods, preparations, and procedures of conducting such web conference based assessment are presented. Online assessment activities and results are used to (a) improve the quality of students ongoing projects, and (b) examine the consistency of students’ performances between their ongoing learning performance and the learning outcomes from the web conferences with the instructor. Issues, tips, and research directions on this topic will be presented.
