Title    DIY (Do It Yourself) Online Assessment 






With the quick development of technology in education there has come a fervent need for applying different assessment techniques regularly whether formative or summative ones. Yet what kind of assessment should we use? Thus I would to help the attendees to work with me online through their mobiles or ipads to share in applying different apps to see how easy it is to use them and apply them at their schools. 



Session Objectives


By the end of these sessions, the participants would be able to:

**  Understand the idea of Assessment, its types and kinds

** Know how to apply  Assessment inside/outside class with the least possible obstacles. 

**  Use different Technological Assessment Apps

**  Prepare their own Rubrics according to students' needs  



Target audience

Teachers whether novice or experienced ones, Teacher Trainers 





Weekly Content



Week 1   (Jan 8-14, 2017)

After getting introduced and ice breaking. I will start by giving Critical Thinking Questions to open a discussion on Assessment. The Discussion would be the warm up to introduce kinds and types of Assessment. First the kinds of Assessment are to be introduced. Then an application on a lesson for Young Learners would take place about Shakespeare's life (link attached). After that the results would be analysed to deduct the types of Assessment through the work done. A sum up of the relation between the kinds and types of Assessment is to be introduced in the form of a mind map.  The teachers would be asked to do a similar exercise themselves at home and present it next time. (Pdfs of the worksheets attached on the sidebar )   http://learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/en/short-stories/william-shakespeare



Week 2  (Jan 15-21, 2017)

The main concepts of Assessment with the difference between kinds and types of Assessment would be revised once more. The Teachers would present the assignments done.  The idea of Rubrics would be introduced. Then once more an application would take place for a Teens and Adult Learners lesson.  These would then be revised against the previously introduced Mind Map.  A preliminary Rubrics would be formed together with the attendee teachers. The teachers would be asked to develop a Rubric on their own at home and present it next time. 


Week 3   (Jan 22-28, 2017)

Again a revision of all the previous work is to be done. The Assignment would be checked, then the preliminary Rubrics form  introduced last time would be developed into a good /reliable one. The attendees would be introduced to some technological Assessment tools/apps that can help them and their students whether inside or outside class. Two Apps would be introduced, namely Socrative and Kahoot, the details would be explained. Then the teachers would  get online with the Trainer and apply the two tools themselves and then analyse the work done using the types of Assessment previously introduced. The teachers would be asked to do an exercise themselves at home and present it next time. (slides for the two Apps was uploaded on the sidebar)


Week 4  (Jan 29-Feb 4, 2017)

The same steps of Week 3 would be followed here as well after checking the assignments done. These would be followed by the introduction of two more complicated Web tools, namely Wiki and Edmodo. Again the attendee teachers would be helped to open accounts on these two apps, have a tour through them. The teachers would be given an assignment to do a lesson or exercise or project through one of these tools and be ready to present it next time.  



Week 5  (Feb 5-11, 2017)

The final assignment would be checked and the teachers would present and discuss the projects prepared. The teachers would be asked to analyse two of the  lessons/projects presented (to be chosen by the trainer) according to the kinds and types of Assessment explained. This would be followed by a sum up for the work done all through the month with an analysis of the advantages and disadvantages deducted. Conclusions would be finally stated. More Discussions would be encouraged on Moodle 4 Teachers platform.
