Yishay Mor :: Blog :: call for expressions of interest: software developers practical enquiry day on formative e-Assessment, Dec. 9th, IOE (London)

November 17, 2008

The JISC-funded project on formative e-assessment (http://feasst.wordpress.com/about/) is being carried out by the Institute of Education, University of London. Using the Planet methodology (http://icanhaz.com/planet-methodology), the project is building a series of case studies, design patterns and scenarios of formative assessment involving a variety of electronic tools and software. These aim to describe the processes involved in formative assessment in a variety of learning contexts - HE, FE, work-based and adult and community learning. A main outcome will be the development of models which can inform the future development of tools to support formative assessment.

As part of this project, we are holding a software developers enquiry day at the CETL for Work-based Learning, Institute of Education, University of London, on Tuesday 9 December from 10.00 - 14.00. A key task for the project has been to identify processes which take place around formative assessment where technologies play a significant role. These processes are contextualized in a variety ways (e.g. purposes, curriculum goals, phase of education, technological affordances) which need to be understood in order to design process models for software developers which have high relevance for users. Design patterns are key to achieving this.

The day will have a practical orientation and we are intending to present to and discuss with the group the patterns we have worked on and analysed. We intend to work with colleagues on 'translating' patterns into a modelling language / specifications.

If you wish to participate in this day, please email: Caroline Daly, C.Daly@ioe.ac.uk.
