Assessing transferable skills

3.2    

The embedding of digital technology across all forms of subject-assessment creates opportunities for developing learners’ transferable skills over and above vocational expertise that is at the core of their learning programmes.

This module looks at how you can make transferable skills development an explicit planned outcome of your assessment strategy and at ways to work together with colleagues to deliver it as a shared goal.

Aim

This module aims to help you review and develop innovative teaching approaches when assessing transferable skills

Objective

After completing this module you will be able to:

- Critically reflect upon the ways in which subject-specific assessment can help to develop learners' transferable skills
- Choose appropriate digital tools to support and assess learners' development of transferable skills
- Work with colleagues in other subject areas to build practices that promote the development of transferable skills

Digital Teaching Professional Framework

This module covers the DTPF component - E1a : Assessment and feedback with peer feedback illustrations

  • Use digital assessment tools to monitor the learning process and obtain information on learners' progress.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative assessment strategies, e.g. using classroom response systems, quizzes, games.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative and summative assessment in tests, e.g. through computer-based tests, implementing audio or video (e.g. in language learning), using simulations or subject-specific digital technologies as test environments.
  • Use digital technologies to scaffold learners' assignments and their assessment, e.g. through ePortfolios.
  • Use a variety of digital and non-digital assessment formats and be aware of their benefits and drawbacks.
  • Critically reflect on the appropriateness of digital assessment approaches and adapt strategies accordingly.

The example in the video is very useful, and I like the line 'digital skills are no longer optional'--not just relevant for employability for students... but also for teachers!  Report this review
