Assessment lecture

I attended an early morning lecture on assessment in Edinburgh today. Professor Dylan Wiliam of the University of London gave a Masterclass on the role of assessment in the education system. It was a fascinating talk from one of the worlds leading experts on assessment theory.

During my recent secondment, I produced a paper on Assessment 2.0 [PDF], which described how we can use Web 2.0 technologies to generate evidence for assessment. It would be interesting to know how practitioners are responding to Web 2.0 and if/how you are using these tools in the assessment process.

    Very interesting, particularly the points on the wide IT useage gulf between the tutor and the informed student. The suggestion/prediction that Web 2.0 tools could be used for teaching looks promising.

  3. I can't comment on the take-up of the eNABs Tom since it's not my sector. If you're correct about low take-up then that would be disappointing.
