Recommendation 45 Online assessment
Recommendation 45. We recommend that the Government review student assessment to ensure that more online assessment opportunities are realised.
Comment: Assessment is a very time-consuming activity for teachers. There is now sufficient academic research on how eModerators can use “rubrics” to track student performance and contributions. Collaborative writing is practical on low cost tablets. Google Docs is free for schools.
eModerators can work from home freeing up school facilities and teachers and may be non-working graduates and retirees. Their comments and assessments can automatically be visible to the teacher.
We do not need a review but funding to deliver the relevant software! --Ian Mitchell FIITP 00:22, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
