À propos du cours

For several decades now, assessment has become an increasingly pressing educational priority. Teacher and school accountability systems have come to be based on analysis of large-scale, standardized summative assessments. As a consequence, assessment now dominates most conversations about reform, particularly as a measure of teacher and school accountability for learner performance. Behind the often heated and at times ideologically gridlocked debate is a genuine challenge to address gaps in achievement between different demographically identifiable groups of students. There is an urgent need to lift whole communities and cohorts of students out of cycles of underachievement. For better or for worse, testing and public reporting of achievement is seen to be one of the few tools capable of clearly informing public policy makers and communities alike about how their resources are being used to expand the life opportunities for their children. This course is an overview of current debates about testing, and analyses the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of approaches to assessment. The course also focuses on the use of assessment technologies in learning. It will explore recent advances in computer adaptive and diagnostic testing, the use of natural language processing technologies in assessments, and embedded formative assessments in digital and online curricula. Other topics include the use of data mining and learning analytics systems in learning management systems and educational technology platforms. Participants will be required to consider issues of data access, privacy and the challenges raised by ‘big data’ including data persistency and student profiling. -------------------------------- Recommended Background -------------------------------- This course is designed for people interested in the future of education and the "learning society," including people who may wish to join education as a profession, practicing teachers interested in exploring future directions for a vocation that is currently undergoing transformation, and community and workplace leaders who regard their mission to be in part "educative." -------------------------------- Related Resources -------------------------------- Additional online resources are available here: https://newlearningonline.com -------------------------------- Take this Course for Credit at the University of Illinois -------------------------------- This course has the same content and anticipates the same level of contribution by students in the e-Learning Ecologies course offered to graduate certificate, masters, and doctoral level students in the Learning Design and Leadership Program in the College of Education at the University of Illinois. Of course, in the nature of MOOCs many people will just want to view the videos and casually join some of the discussions. Some people say that these limited kinds of participation offer evidence that MOOCs suffer from low retention rates. Far from it – we say that any level of engagement is good engagement. On the other hand, if you would like to take this course for credit at the University of Illinois, you will find more information about our program here: https://newlearningonline.com/kalantzis-and-cope/learning-design-and-leadership-program And you can apply here: https://education.illinois.edu/epol/programs-degrees/ldl -------------------------------- The Learning Design and Leadership Series of MOOCs -------------------------------- This course is one of a series of eight MOOCs created by Bill Cope and Mary Kalantzis for the Learning Design and Leadership program at the University of Illinois.

Supports students in rethinking norm-referenced standards for assessment, in comparison with mastery learning. Also introduces educational data mining and whole-program evaluation.

I enjoyed this course a lot and benefited from each portion of it, I am working in education as well as program evaluations, so it served both purposes. Especially at the time of a world pandemic and having to shift to online learning, this helped me a lot get an overall idea of where to start with program assessment and utilizing the newly available tools (analytics) for the purpose of program assessment and course assessment and evaluations. Thank you so much for this, will definitely enroll in other Illinois courses on coursera.

I am rating 1 star due to the pathetic instructors of the course. Dr. J Greene is worst of them all. She is unable to figure out teleprompter from where she is just reading out stuff. Please appoint some good instructors, this is not expected from Coursera

The course provides a broad-brush overview of assessment. The course material is at the knowledge level, but many of the assignments ask for analysis. The assignment rubric was not viewable prior to posting the first assignment. I did not receive my first peer review, where I could actually view the rubric until I had already submitted 5 of the 7 assignments. The info on data analytics was enlightening. The final section, on program evaluation, was very generic and not specific to education. I could make the leap to see how it could be relevant, but since this was billed as a basic level course, I should not have had to make that leap. I was somewhat surprised that there was absolutely no reference to Kirkpatrick's four levels of educational evaluation. I did learn a few things I didn't know before, but I do not believe I developed any new skills.
