Exploring Online Student Assessment Systems: Part 1 – Learning Catalytics

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

In search of a faster and more efficient way of assessing student comprehension of topics addressed in class, Anna Dera stumbled upon Learning Catalytics. Diagrams, graphs, pictures and data analysis are all essential for assessing student understanding in biology, and many assessment systems are limited with respect to using this type of material. Anna’s research has taught her quickly that not all classroom response systems are made the same.

In Search of a Successful Second Act

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Angie Stevens started the English for Tourism wiki as a project to create a usable, user-friendly dictionary for students to learn tourism vocabulary in English. It was created by the students for their own use but also for future students to use. She is now looking at how to use these features to keep the excitement at the level it was when the site was under development.

While our team has worked closely together over the past few months to ensure coverage of college network activities and to translate a number of the French articles, some of the publications are available in French only. These are very worthy of your attention and we have prepared the following summary with hopes that it will inspire you to read on.

Transition to Electronic Marking with iAnnotate

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Are you feeling ready to make the move to correcting assignments electronically? Are you overwhelmed by the number of tools that exist? This article will explain one teacher’s experience with an application she has been using for several years. Anna Dera, a Biology Teacher at CEGEP Champlain St. Lawrence wanted a tool that made the transition to marking electronically simple; something that allowed her to continue writing notes, “by hand”. She began marking electronically on a laptop with a touch screen and a special stylus pen. Soon after, she started using an iPad, and in her search for an application that would allow her to continue this new electronic marking technique, she discovered iAnnotate, which has remained her marking tool of choice for over 6 years.

I am therefore suggesting that you take a second look at 6 publications put online during the second half of the fall semester 2016.
