Title: Using ICT for Assessment

Using ICT for Assessment
  • Teacher observation
  • Screening checklists
  • Curriculum profiles
  • Running records
  • Standardised screening tests
  • Diagnostic tests
  • Rating scales

Teacher Observation
  • Value of observation of pupil using reinforcement
  • Teacher is free to observe and record
  • Computer is non-judgemental
  • Pupil unaware of assessment
  • Assessment will be skill-specific and not
    hindered by other difficulties

Features of software suitable for teacher
  • Clearly defined skills in each activity
  • Easy access to particular skill areas
  • Graduated levels of difficulty
  • Teacher facility to add additional material
  • Facility to record childs progress

Teacher designed Assessment
  • Screening Checklists
  • Rating scales
  • Screening profiles
  • Curriculum profiles

Value of teacher designed assessment using ICT
  • Skill specific
  • Objective
  • Clarity of print and graphics
  • Teacher is free to observe and record
  • Information can be used for short term planning
  • Review made easy
  • Consistent approach to assessment and recording
    in a school

Dedicated Assessment Software
  • Used to assess student attainment and identify
    learning difficulties
  • Consist of variety of tests to identify students
    strengths and weaknesses
  • Benefits
  • Can be helpful in early identification of
    learning difficulties
  • Use results to individualise instruction and
    develop individual education plans
  • Monitor progress on a regular basis

Features of quality assessment software
  • Quick and easy to administer and interpret
  • Pinpoint strengths and weaknesses
  • Facilitate early detection
  • Explore weaknesses through automatic branching
  • Suggest instructional groupings
  • Generate individual reports

Assessment Software
  • Examples include
  • Lucid COPS (Cognitive Profiling System) 4-8
    years old
  • LASS 11-15 (Lucid Assessment System for Schools)
  • Accelerated Reader / Accelerated Math
  • Star Reading
  • Star Early Literacy
  • Lexia Quick Reading Test
  • Lexia Comprehensive Reading Test
  • Ten Minute Numeracy Tests 7-9, 9-11
  • Spot On Games

Integrated Learning Systems (ILS)
  • System will
  • Assess the childs level of skill
  • Provide a sequence of learning activities to meet
  • Childs ability will determine pace
  • Automatic branching

Integrated Learning system (ILS)
  • Computer-based system that manages delivery of
  • Presents learners with a question, records the
    response, gives instant feedback and
    automatically selects new questions
  • Provides feedback and detailed records

Integrated Learning system (ILS)
  • Results are highly context dependent
  • Level of teacher intervention is critical factor
  • Teachers involvement with system is major factor
    to student gains
  • Where pupils use ILS in isolation from their
    teacher and from the rest of the curriculum, both
    learning gains and motivation are likely to be

Integrated Learning system (ILS)
  • Examples include
  • The Academy of Reading
  • Global Integrated Learning System
  • RM Maths
  • Tomorrows Promise
