The special interest group on Technology Enhanced Assessment and Feedback (SIG TEA) of the European Association of Technology-Enhanced Learning , together with two representatives of the L3S Research Center (Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany) and from the Centre for Educational Technology Institute of Informatics (University of Tallinn, Estonia), are organizing the Workshop on Technology-Enhanced Formative Assessment (TEFA) 2013 in conjunction with the Eight European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL) 2013 .
The goal of the workshop is to develop the notion of technology-enhanced formative assessment (TEFA) as a component for extending existing or new TEL approaches, further combining expertise from pedagogy, educational measurement, cognitive science, and information technology. A trend from /dedicated to integrated/ and from /sporadic to continuous/ formative assessment is envisioned. Challenging research questions will be addressed such as: /How are established forms of formative assessment changing with the inclusion of technology and what new forms of formative assessment become possible? How is this reflected in new pedagogical approaches? How can today VLE support the provision of elaborated feedback?
Call for papers
Position statement submissions are solicited (6 pages max. in Springer Format) that deal with approaches and innovative assessment technologies that support the transition from current assessment scenarios towards the development of e-assessment forms through which high level of meta-cognitive skills are evaluated, on-going feedback is provided, and students are more engaged in the learning process.
