A study of online evidence-based assessment system to promote collaborative and cooperative learning in group activities

Research output: Contribution to conferencePapers

Abstract

Many courses involve group project and activities, but it is not easy to motivate all students will actively contribute and collaborate with each other. Teachers usually collect the final outcome, so it is difficult to assess the group work fairly even though the workload is unevenly distributed. To solve these problems, an online evidence-based assessment system called “GMoodle” is used as a centralised platform for students to work on group activities such as discussion, sharing resources and providing feedback for each other. Detailed reports were generated for both students and teachers in real-time. Students can know their daily progress and the contribution of the other members. Whereas teachers can access the activity log of all students in the class, which could be used to assess the group work and identify free-riders. To study the effectiveness, GMoodle has been adopted by six courses in semester 1 and 2 in 2018-19. Copyright © 2019 Learning and Teaching @EdUHK Festival.
