We all know how effective the use of digital technologies (ICT) is within lesson and unit plans, but what about when creating assessments for students? By implementing ICT within students assessments, it will create countless opportunities for learners to display their overall comprehension and skill acquisition learnt throughout the unit. Therefore, by providing students with the chance to incorporate the use of digital technology within their assessment, will ultimately increase the learners opportunity to achieve high results.
In a recent blog post by Maggie Stevens, it highlights exactly how beneficial the use of ICT within assessment is. In addition, there have been numerous studies on how effective the implementation of ICT is within assessment in order to enhance student achievements. Such studies includes Mary Lincoln’s study, focusing in the middle years of schooling.
