Tue Feb 23 13:12:04 PST 2010
As I mentioned in Monday's conference call, Marc and I are thinking of proposing a potential group panel, including other Sakai institutions and organizations. I think we've changed our scope a bit, though, from the topic I mentioned in the call. Below is our current draft of our proposal. Would anyone like to join in?
We're thinking of proposing a longer session (potentially 2 or 3 hours), depending on how big of a response we get from the community. If you are interested in participating, please email me (teggin at vt.edu<mailto:teggin at vt.edu>) as soon as you can so we know how much time to consider and who to include in our description.
Again, this is just a preliminary draft and is subject to change :)

This panel session will focus on models of assessment cycles that employ the Open-Source Portfolio tools within the Sakai environment.

This panel session will focus on models of assessment cycles that employ the Open-Source Portfolio tools within the Sakai environment. Representatives from several schools, including Virginia Tech, YOUR NAME HERE<https://webapps.es.vt.edu/confluence/pages/createpage.action?spaceKey=EPORT&title=PUT+YOUR+NAME+HERE&linkCreation=true&fromPageId=110723117>, will discuss what tools they use, how they collect useful assessment data, how they use Sakai to analyze that data, and how they configure the Sakai toolset to communicate and collaborate on the assessment process. Each assessment cycle requires different tools and protocols, and this session will encourage an open discussion about how best to configure the Sakai environment to meet student, faculty, and administrator assessment needs. Short examples/demonstrations will be offered by the panelists, followed by an in-depth conversation with session participants about the challenges and successes of using Sakai for assessing learning.
