Creating a Web of Evidence: Multimedia Examples of Student Performance.
Tavalin, Fern; Gibson, David
Supported by funds and technical assistance from the U.S. Department of Education Innovation Challenge, the WEB Project has built several dynamic online networks that foster professional growth and measure improvement in student learning. The classrooms and networks of teachers and community professionals involved include work in music, visual arts, history, and literature. By design, the WEB Project serves all students. Each classroom or network incorporates vital learning results like communication, problem solving, critical thinking, civic responsibility, and personal development into its use of technology. Community and statewide organizations aid in the educational process and help to set standards for quality. The project has developed successful advanced technology strategies in three broad areas of work: (1) developing and using online assessment systems; (2) achieving high quality work, including focusing of production and elaboration of ideas, and using a variety of evidence; and (3) sustaining professional growth, including adaptation of existing models to align with standards, using electronic examples of performance, articulation of standards to include evidence of performance and student work samples, demonstration of student achievement via Web-based portfolios, and general guidance for improvement while work is in-progress.
