Title: Teaching, learning and assessment

Teaching, learning and assessment
  • Raimonda Markeviciene
  • With compliments to Dr. Helen Cameron

  • The adoption of a learning outcomes approach
    represents more than simply expressing learning
    in terms of outcomes. It entails much more due to
    their significant implications for all aspects of
    curriculum design, delivery, expression,
    assessement and standards.
  • Adam S, 2004

What do we mean by assessment?
  • A range of synonyms in English
  • Examinations, Evaluations, Appraisal, Judgements,
    Measurement, Review, Opinion, Consideration,
  • Practically
  • Taken to mean any formal review of performance
    or ability exams at any time, in-course
    assignments, practicals etc.

The purpose of assessment
Types of Assessment?
  • Summative assessment
  • Formative assessment
  • Primary purposes
  • Assessment of learning
  • Records achievement
  • Informs decisions about readiness to progress
  • Reassures clients, public, taxpayers, employers
  • Accumulative assessment
  • Primary purposes
  • Assessment for learning
  • Promotes appropriate learning
  • Feedback
  • Lifelong learning
  • Diagnostic assessment

Continuous assessment A combination of summative
and formative assessment. Usually involves
repeated summative assessments. Marks recorded.
Simple suggestions?....
  1. Clearly define the learning outcomes.
  2. Select teaching and learning methods that are
    likely to ensure that the learning outcomes are
  3. Choose a technique or techniques to assess the
    achievement of the learning outcomes.
  4. Assess the learning outcomes and check to see how
    well they match with what was intended

Tuning Links Learning to Assessment
First, needs analysis students required
performance This informs the intended assessment.
Write LOs to tell students and staff what is
intended. Use LOs to write new assessments / exams

Constructive alignment
  • Constructive alignment is the deliberate linking
    within curricula of aims, learning outcomes,
    learning and teaching activities and assessment.
  • Learning Outcomes state what is to be achieved in
    fulfilment of the aims.
  • Learning activities should be organised so that
    students will be likely to achieve those
  • Assessment must be designed such that students
    are able to demonstrate that they have met the
    learning outcomes.
  • Constructive alignment is just a fancy name for
    joining up the dots.
  • (Morss and
    Murray, 2005)

How do we join the dots???

The level (quality) of Learning Outcome
  • Rubric A grading tool used to describe the
    criteria which are used in grading the
    performance of students.
  • Rubric provides a clear guide as to how students
    work will be assessed.
  • A rubric consists of a set of criteria and marks
    or grade associated with these criteria.

Example from Music

Assessment strategy and criteria
Assessment strategy Weight in percents Time of assessment Assessment criteria
Work during seminars in the classroom 20 Teaching weeks within semester 2 points actively participates in discussions, answer questions, formulate problems and raises questions, gives critical comments 1 point participates in discussions, answers questions 0 points almost does not participate in discussions, missed more that 1/3 seminars
Written assignment (15 pages) 30 Until December 1. The following aspects of work are evaluated Structure and volume of the work structure clear and logical, shows all necessary parts (introduction, where theme, aims, goals, methods and empirical material are introduced narrative, where analysis of empirical information and its interpretation as well as conclusions are presented), work of necessary length (0,5 points) Analysis and conclusions profound analysis, conclusions based on empirical material 2 points analysis is carried out but not deep, conclusions not always well grounded 1 point, points are not given for poor analysis. Research style and culture appropriate treatment of sources and quotations formulations and style appropriate to scientific work (0,5 points). No written work 0 points
Egzaminas test (could be planned in 2 parts at the middle of the term and the end of the term) 50 January Test consists of 50 open and closed questions (various level of difficulty - from understanding to evaluation), each gives 1 point. Evaluation 5 Excellent knowledge and skills. Evaluation level. 45-50 correct answers. 4 Good knowledge and skills, minor mistakes are possible. Evaluation level 35-44 correct answers. 3 Fair knowledge and skills. There are mistakes. Evaluation level. 25-34 corrects answers. 2 Knowledge and skills are below average. Essential mistakes. Level of knowledge applicability. 15-24 correct answers. 1 Knowledge and skills meet threshold requirements. Many mistakes. Level of knowledge applicability 5-14 correct answers. 0 Minimal requirements are not met. 0-4 correct answers.

Assessment on module level
Module LO 1 LO 2 LO 3 LO 4 LO 5 LO 6
Task 1
Task 2
Task 3
Isnt the fist LO assessed too much? Is there no
need to asses LO2? Do we need to assess LO 1, 3,
4 5 and 6 during the exam? What LO are assessed
during the task 3? Is exam a real tool of
assessment? Why so many LO are assessed in in
the exam when other tasks/methods are also used?
  • Avoid too many LOs per course unit. It is
    important when it comes to Assessment
  • It is unreasonable for assessors to have to
    evaluate students against too many LOs in one
  • Too many assessments per unit is inefficient

Linking LO and activities (Deusto case.
  • The main goal of the course is to provide the
    students with a set of competences for the
    understanding and application of statistical
    concepts and techniques in engineering
    disciplines. These competences can be classified
    as general competences and specific ones
  • Specific competences
  • CE 1. Identify situations with a random behaviour
    and calculate probability of these phenomena.
  • CE 2. Know, identify and classify random
    variables from different sources of information.
  • CE 3.Identify and solve problems in which the
    studied variable follows a known probability
    distribution. To build up and validate suitable
    statistical models for real problems.
  • CE 4. Know the use of estimation and inference in
    order to study the behaviour of a model through a
    sample of the population under study.
  • CE5. Assess the importance of statistics and its
    proper use in specific engineering problems.
  • General competences
  • TIME MANAGEMENT. Distribute time equally
    depending on priorities, taking into account
    personal objectives. Define, organize and plan
  • Domain level 2 define and sort objectives and
    plan individual activity over the medium and long
    terms (from various weeks to half a year).

  • Classroom activities (69 hours)
  • - Lectures explaining the theoretical material
    40 hours
  • - Resolution of exercises and example problems
    23 hours.
  • - Continuous assessment 3 hours.
  • - Final assessment 3 hours.
  • Out-of-class activities (81 hours)
  • - Individual study of lecture material 32 hours.
  • - Undertaking of proposed exercises and revision
    20 hours.
  • - Undertaking of intermediate mileposts and final
    presentation 11 hours
  • - Preparation for exam 18 hours.

  • Exercises to be handed in at the end of each
    subject, accounting for 15 of the final grade.
  • Presentation of a course summary accounting for
    10 of the final grade.
  • Three continuous assessment tests consisting of
    medium difficulty exercises undertaken in the
    classroom during lecture time, accounting for 75
    of the final grade.
  • If a grade of at least 50 is obtained with the
    deliverable exercises, the continuous assessment
    tests and the presentation, it will not be
    necessary to take the final exam and the grade
    will be that obtained up to this time.

  • If the student does not obtain at least a 50 of
    the grades, he or she has to
  • do the end-of-term examination consisting of four
    or five problems of medium difficulty, accounting
    for 75 of the final grade.
  • deliver the failed or non-given tasks.
  • present again the course summary.

Quality Assurance Process and outcomes
  • Tuning distinguish two types of indicators to
    measure the quality of programmes
  • The process itself for (re)designing, developing,
    implementing, evaluating and enhancing degree
  • The outcome of the process the minimum
    requirements should have been met
  • For both purposes Tuning has developed
  • 1. Tuning List of Key Questions for Programme
    Design and Programme
  • Delivery, Maintenance and Evaluation in the
    Framework of the Bologna Reform (Annex 1)
  • 2. Tuning Checklist for Curriculum Evaluation

Tuning approach for designing study programmes
Approaches to Teaching Learning and Assessment

Programme and course unit assessment
  • Alumni survey and meetings
  • Graduating student survey
  • Focus groups interviews
  • Employer survey/ interview
  • Parents survey/ interview
  • Assessment that directly measures achievement of
    LO (exams, portfolios, test)
  • Analysis of the study results/marks (module and
    programme levels)
  • Drop out rates
  • Students and teacher opinion

Student workload issue to consider (input
Give me time to think, U-ty of Oulu)
  • Preliminary work before contact hours
  • Contact hours
  • Individual work after contact hours. Individual
    work will depend on study methods used.

Suggestied proportions of contact and individual
work hours depending on study methods
Time allocated for the tasks depends on the type
of the activity/task
  • Written assignment. Time calculation - 100
    words/1 hour.
  • Presentation. 1 hour presentation requires min. 6
    hours of preparation.
  • Reading literature. Students must know whether
    literature is compulsory (for passing the exam)
    or complimentary. The text will be well
    understood after third reading (three staged of
    reading perusal, analitical reading with notes
  • 100 pages of easy text requires 20 hours. 100
    pages of difficult text or text in foreign
    language requires 30 hours.

Recommendations for calculation of reading the
Complexity of the text Time Necessary for deep reading Time Necessary for deep reading
Complexity of the text Humanitarian text Technical text
Easy 100 word/min 60 word/min
Average difficulty 70 word/min 40 word/min
Difficult 40 word/min 25 word/min
