Technology Enhanced Innovative Assessment: Development, Modeling, and Scoring From an Interdisciplinary Perspective
Assessment innovation tied to technology is greatly needed in a wide variety of assessment applications. This book adopts an interdisciplinary perspective to learn from advances in developing technology-enhanced innovative assessments from multiple fields. Specifically, the book addresses:
- The development of virtual assessments, including game‐based assessment, simulation‐based assessment, and narrative-based assessment, as well as how simulation- and game-based assessments serve both formative and summative purposes
- The critical challenge of integrating assessment directly into the learning process so that teacher effectiveness and student learning can be enhanced
- The psychometric challenges related to innovative items
WestEd’s Matt Silberglitt contributed a key chapter, “SimScientists: Affordances of Science Simulations for Formative and Summative Assessment.”
The chapter discusses the work of WestEd’s SimScientists, a project that has developed a portfolio of simulation-based assessments to supplement middle school curriculum units in life science, physical science, and Earth science.
