There are a plethora of options when it comes to changing assessment, from the smallest efforts with great results, to complete course reworks as we do in TALIDA.
As the Project Manager for Digital Assessment at UiB, addressing changes in assessment to focus on student learning has always been the main goal. Secondary, is utilizing the potential of digital tools in accomplishing this focus change. The project has been a great success, although through the past two years and hundreds of dialogues with colleges (administrative and academic), a few key statements seem to repeat themselves:
I don’t see what’s in it for me
What I want to do can’t be done here
My field cannot be digitized
I will address these issues in a series of entries, attempting to show that there are a plethora of options when it comes to changing assessment, from the smallest efforts with great results, to complete course reworks as we do in TALIDA.
There are many ongoing efforts at UiB and elsewhere that showcase change; to get started:
