Edith Cowan Institute of Education Research is proud to present this week’s research seminar ‘Digital Portfolios for Summative Assessment’ to be presented by Paul Newhouse, who will be the sixth speaker at the Semester 2 seminars on Thursday 13 September.
This seminar reports on the first stage of a three-year project to investigate the representation of student practical work in digital forms for the purpose of summative assessment. In a number of senior secondary courses in Western Australia, such as Visual Arts and Design, students submit creative practical work for summative assessment that takes various forms dependent on the chosen context. The collection and judging/marking of this work has increasingly been considered to be problematic by assessors, teachers and probably many students. The first phase of the project involved creating digital representations of the practical creative work submitted by a sample of students in the Year 12 Visual Arts and Design courses and comparing the results of marking these with the physical forms.
Paul Newhouse (Ph.D) is an Associate Professor in educational computing at ECU. He is currently the director of the Centre for Schooling and Learning Technologies (CSaLT) in the School of Education.
