Assessment – Key Concepts for BUS-435 Part 1

Assessment is such an overarching concept. Regardless of the subject matter (Business Ed, English, Foreign Language, etc…) assessment will be a key component of the student’s and teacher’s experience.

So it is very important to get firmly grounded in the types of assessment, especially the difference between formative and summative assessment.

Key Concept: The first big difference is when the assessment takes place in a student’s learning process. Formative assessment/evaluation is an ongoing activity. Formative assessment/evaluation takes place during the learning process.

Summative assessment/evaluation takes place at the end of an instructional segment (concept, unit, semester, course).

Your resources for the week do an excellent deep dive on assessment so read/reread/bookmark them.

Please post questions/needs for clarification to the “Questions” forum.

Thanks!

Learning, Coaching, and Laying the Track

As We Close Our Final Day of our Final Week

“With one exception, every single writer I met likened writing for television to one thing–laying track for an oncoming speeding train. The story is the track and you gotta keep laying it down because of the train. That train is production. You keep writing, you keep laying track down, no matter what, because the train of production is coming toward you- no matter what.” ~Shonda Rhimes, Year of Yes, pp. xiii.

Tech coaches liken coaching their colleagues to laying track for an oncoming speeding train. Learning is the track and you gotta keep laying it down because of the train. That train is the school year and the students. You keep learning and coaching, you keep laying track down, no matter what, because the train of the school year and the students are coming toward you-no matter what.

 ~Adapted from Shonda Rhimes, Year of Yes, pp. xiii.

In this last discussion forum, you continued your peer support and collegiality continues. Now, at the close of the course, we are at the perpetuation and sustainability level of our PLN (Groundwater-Smith & Mockler, 2012). We are laying track for the future.

You are busy, busy tonight with so many things. But in the next day or so, please consider clicking in and returning to class. Please click over to the Class Wall, where you began our course. Scan/read the introductions we all posted there. Take just a couple of minutes to read/reread the service-oriented intros of your course colleagues. You might not have visited the Class Wall in almost six weeks, but please return there and scroll through the messages of the members of our class PLN.

It has been a privilege to learn with you… please keep in touch as you keep laying track!!

Dr. Teague

Enduring Value In Online Courses & Beyond!

For our Students in Online & F2F courses, (such as those offered by PBS TeacherLine and GCU) subuilding enduring knowledge structures together provides collaborative value & deeper learning (McTighe & Willis, 2019; Papert & Harel, 1991).

Here’s how:

In resource share assignments, after posting in the LMS, invite students to also copy/paste their resources to a Class Community document (GDoc/Slides/Sheets, etc…).

At the end of the assignment, for students have co-constructed a comprehensive learning artifact of all their collaborative shares for enduring value and use in their current/future professional practice.

Nehemiah- Example of Public Domain Photo

Hi Scholars!! As we continue our discussion of Digital Citizenship, we address the use of images for digital communication, lessons, presentations, etc…

Please look at the image below. Then, consider the question and resources listed after it.

Image Caption: Gustave DoréNehemiah Views the Ruins of Jerusalem’s Walls, 1866.

Questions: What does proper image attribution have to do with Digital Citizenship?

Why is this image labeled as “Public Domain”?

Thank you TEC-516!

Hello Practitioners in TEC-516~~

Today is our last day together, virtually. It has been a privilege to learn with you during our course. We have learned a lot and created some constructive artifacts together: word clouds, crossword puzzle collaborative completion, active research data collection from a survey, and a photographic PLN collage, digital flyer, Benchmark Guideline proposal—just to name a few things!

I hope you’ll find what we’ve done together useful and productive.

It’s been a pleasure working with you! Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Start to 2019~

Dr. Teague
