Toward a Revised Assessment Model: Rationales and Strategies for Assessing Students' Technological Authorship
De Hertogh, Lori Beth
Composition Forum, v30 Fall 2014
I argue in this article that digital composing practices require composition teachers to rethink the way we articulate learning outcomes and conduct classroom assessment. To accomplish this, we must revise the language we use to talk about outcomes and assessment in the context of new media. We also need to better understand how technologies are changing student compositions, thus driving the need to change our learning outcomes and assessment practices. The purpose of this article is to provide rationales and strategies for doing so, as well as classroom activities that can be used to assess new media compositions.
