Assessment for Learning In Research Methods
  • To be addressed:
  • Traditional assessment
  • New ways of assessing: New media opportunities
  • Maintaining systematic and critical ground rules necessary for academic rigour
  • To be presented:
  • A range of examples from classroom practice, use of technology for collaboration and assessment, practices of students using computers in a multimodal environment
pilot research
Pilot research
  • Setting: Teachingresearch methods module to Level 4 Undergraduates. [Degree and Higher National students]
  • Rationale: Experimentation with different delivery, collaboration and assessment methods
  • Questions:
  • How can Web 2.0 and emerging technologies used in everyday literacy practices be acknowledged and built on in the Higher Education Curriculum?

how to assess
How to assess
  • Traditional Assessment methods do not account for the many different modes
    • Not recognising the full nature of multimodal communication used in social media may impact on assessment techniques
  • Communication can be assessed through different modes (Jewitt, 2009)
  • What is a mode?
    • A mode can be defined as a socially shaped semiotic resource used for making meaning for example image, writing, speech, layout, colour and space (Kress, 2010).
multimodal framework
Multimodal Framework
  • Creation of Multimodal Transcripts ( Baldry and Thibault (2006): Multimodal Analysis:
  • Provides tools for analysing and describing the resources used by students. Multimodal frameworks can add justification to using new media opportunities for assessment
