Integrating assessment for learning strategies into online learning environments: A case study of teaching secondary ICT

Research output: Contribution to journalArticles

Abstract

Research findings show that Assessment for Learning (AfL) have great potential in regard to teaching and learning (Assessment Reform Group, 1999, 2002). On the other hand, Lai and Ng (2010, 2011) confirmed that Web 2.0 tools such as wikis can facilitate different forms of feedback and self- and peer-assessment, in addition to multidimensional assessment methods that are advocated in AfL. These online tools allow students to work together outside school hours in order to explore common interests and feed back to each other regarding their experiences. On a practical level, teachers hope to discover how Web 2.0 tools can make AfL strategies applicable to learning activities. This study aims to explore the ways in which AfL strategies can be integrated into wiki-based learning activities for teaching ICT in secondary schools. By the end of the study, guiding principles for using AfL in wiki-based activities will have been developed. The research design and implementation will be able to provide an exemplar of good practice of e-learning implementation in schools.
