Experiment title: Using Microsoft Forms to elicit evidence of research / confirmation of learning
Intent: Require learners to submit a completed form through Microsoft Forms which will be compiled into an Excel spreadsheet for tutors.
Setting up a Microsoft form that directly links with task evidence, this particular form had questions that used the criteria command words and asked learners to produce short statements for answers. The purpose for this was to check if learners were assessment ready, but particularly checking if they were ready for attempting the higher criteria. The questions themselves are not taken from the assignment brief, they are simply derived from the criteria command words so a tutor can assess if the learner can demonstrated the commanded skill prior to assessment.
This helps both tutors and students assess their current progress and readiness for formative/summative assessment.
This helps both tutors and students assess their current progress and readiness for formative/summative assessment. The tutor can decipher which learners may need further input or support from the completion of the task, students are also able to receive informal feedback. Evidence can also be collated into spreadsheet format for auditing and evidencing purposes. This method has helped me understand and ensure the timing of my assessments are suitable with the learners progress. It has helped me to decipher if the learner is assessment ready and encourages confidence in evidence generation from the learner as they have had an informal practice of the skill application.
Further implementation of assessment readiness forms to help with learner progress and development, encouraging better achievement when generating evidence. Trying to build consistency and confidence with staff around digital formative assessment. Trialling other ways to use forms to support learner development and progress.
