EdTech: Digital tools for summative assessment
Computer-based tests and digital media are widely used in formative assessment.
This module looks at their use for enhancing low stakes summative assessment activities, where the goal is to test and confirm that a learner has completed a block of work, and for programmes such as NVQ, where they can contribute to the body of evidence submitted for verification.
This module introduces the use of digital tools for summative assessment.
After completing this module, you will be able to:
• identify opportunities to enhance your professional practice by using digital tools to set and deliver summative assessments
• experiment with alternative summative assessment activities
• construct a strategy for successful summative assessment using digital tools.

Food for thought for different opportunities to use digital tools for summative assessment.
Ideal for some assessments but not for others as it depends on the subject area it is being used in.
Disagree with some of the answers - as usual!
Not a very helpful module.
I would like to be signposted to more summative assessment tools.
Some useful ideas to consider in my practice particularly around how to ensure authenticity of work
Good module....until a link to an IQ Test that it doesn't tell you that you have to pay for at the end....Oh, i failed it then?!
This unit was helpful to understand the different ways digital technology can help the learner to demonstrate recall of knowledge, authorship using the various available apps, and how this type of technology can be cost and time effective.
Clear and convincing--makes a strong case for digital summative (and formative) assessment across subjects.
