Hello Louise,
Hope you are enjoying your stay in London,
I have just finished including your evaluation plan notes in our project plan page (here). I did not have the images you had included in your original document; you have them saved on your beautiful slim USB flash drive. Will include them when you come back.
Take care.

Quality of the responses?

Louise - if this a draft, I am very impressed :) My question is related to your data collection method: you have stated one of your collection methods will be "Lecturer assessing the discussion board regularly over a two week period to assess participation and to assess the quality of the responses to the questions asked". Do you have a rubic[1] or checklist to enable you to check for the "quality" aspect of the student responses? e.g. must include 1 reference, states clearly the link/relationship to question, etc. I seem to remember back in the deep dark depths of my memory some references we were given but will have to have a hunt around my old study favourites & see if I can locate it ... you have done a lot of work on preparing the background and it makes for a nice easy read, especially for me as a non-medical person. Cheers, Rachel

Hi Rachel

Thanks so much for your reply.  Your rubic sounds great and I don't have one.  I would appreciate it if you can find it or if anyone else has something that could be helpful.  For me it is great to see them on the discussion board without worrying too much about the quality but if I could measure the quality somehow it would be really helpful for the evaluation process.  I hope your plan is going to time.  They are a lot of work.  Cheers and thanks, Louise

Hello Louise,

I've been using this forum rubric which is basic but might provide some ideas that might help you get started. I hope it helps!

By the way, love the wiki you've created!

Couple of questions

Great work Dana and Louise!

You've both presented really comprehensive plans. It's been great to read oer yours and re think some of the angles i am taking with my own planning.

Louise, you talked about "assessing the formative test participation and results of the students who participated" what exactly does this mean - what will this process look like?

Dana, I was looing at the questions you intend to use - how will you present these in your finl report? Will they be graphical/numerical results or will it be sort of commentary based?

Well done and good luck with the next phase!

Cheers Alex

Hello Alex,

Thanks for commenting.

I will try to include graphical and  numerical data results and written (descriptive0 analyses.

Hope I answered your question.

HI Alex

Thanks for your response.  I am not very clear with that statement and thank you for picking that up.  This is what it means.  I can go into the multichoice formative test and check how many students participated simply by adding up the numbers.  That is a simple calculation that the test does automatically in the LMS.  Second, I can have a look how those students participated - that is how many got what percentage right of the twenty questions and analyse the questions answered e.g. how many chose A how many chose B howmany chose C and how many chose D.  Then I can look at the questions to see did all the students get a question right and if so - is the question too easy?  Did all the students get the same question wrong?  If so is the question ambiguous or poorly written or are the four possible answers too close to differentiate the correct answer.  In other words Alex, I analyse the results carefully and match the students achievement against the purpose of the multichoice test to assess the students' learning.  I could graph the results to show the overall achievement.  Thanks for your positive comments and good luck with your planning.  Louise

Smiley face approach

Hi Dana, I don't I will ever create a smiley face without thinking of your topic - how's that for retention & retrieval? smileyface :) (ok, enough of the bad jokes & puns) I really like your topic, it's almost like the smiley face approach becomes a mnemonic[1] all by itself ... cool :) Rachel
