Enhancing E-Learning Assessment and Evaluation Strategies.
Reeves, Thomas C.; Aggen, William D.
Setting unresolved technical issues aside, there are three other changes that are needed before e-learning realizes its fullest potential. First, the basic mental model of what e-learning is must be expanded. Second, the quality of assessment within e-learning products must be improved. Third, there must be rigorous evaluation of e-learning initiatives. This paper first discusses the different mental models of e-learning, depending on the person's relationship to it. It then focuses on new directions in e-learning assessment and describes an example of alternative assessment in e-learning, specifically the innovative assessment approaches found in the e-learning courseware developed by LearnWright of Rockville, Maryland. Finally, discussion moves to ways advancements in assessment strategies lead to better evaluation of e-learning. (AEF)
