Assessment and Evaluation

Artifact: Backyard Ecosystem Adventure

Description: The backyard ecosystem assignment was an introductory learning module that built storytelling into the learning experience. We included quick assessment within sections and a final quiz to evaluate student learning.

Rationale: The design challenge was understanding building assessments that felt native to the young learner audience. We designed some assessments within learning sections to give the appearance of a game while ending the module with a traditional multiple-choice quiz. The quizzes are designed to work within a desktop or mobile learning environment to allow the learner flexibility on course interaction. The final assessment result was delivered through a SCORM connection to the LMS.

Brightspace Content Tool Asynchronous Course

Description: The course design plan is a proposal to Austin Peay State University for an asynchronous training module for new and returning faculty for the Brightspace LMS. The specific module focuses on the Content Tool within the Brightspace LMS

Rationale: In this group project, the design challenge was to replace an in-person synchronous course with an updated asynchronous online class. This was a group project and my team member also served as the SME for the project. The course uses three of the four levels of evaluation in the Kirkpatrick evaluation model. To measure basic learner satisfaction will use level one of the Kirkpatrick model by offering an optional survey to the learner as a post-course evaluation. This is a passive tool to improve the overall quality of the course and to ensure learners are happy with the overall instruction. If negative feedback is gathered, the distance education team can further evaluate to clarify the instruction and revise as necessary. A level two evaluation will ensure basic learning occurred in the course by the distance education team reviewing the learner’s online courses shortly after the course. Finally, level three, transfer and behavior, can be measured at the end of the semester to check learner behavior continued to progress as courses developed.
