Tools Report - Assessment Tools Summary
Summary of tools
Table 2 provides an overview of selected tools and how well they are able to support different aspects of online interaction for lecturers, markers and students. Seven aspects of practice are considered. These are presented in the top row of the table. The tools are scored against these aspects as either fully supported (2); partially supported (1); or not supported (0). The tool names are in the left column.
The process of determining these ratings has involved a significant amount of subjectivity. This is particularly true for the general-purpose tools as there are an almost infinite number of ways of combining their features to meet a specific assessment need. The ratings therefore come with an attached caveat: it has not been possible to consider every possible use of a tool.
Do not let this table constrain your experimentation. Please view it as a guide based on the tool use the authors have been able to observe and as a challenge to you to discover new ways for using these tools in support of your assignment practice.
