Reframing E-Assessment: Building Professional Nursing and Academic Attributes in a First Year Nursing Course
Lawrence, Jill; Loch, Birgit; Galligan, Linda
Learning, Media and Technology, v33 n3 p169-189 Sep 2008
This paper documents the relationships between pedagogy and e-assessment in two nursing courses offered at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia. The courses are designed to build the academic, numeracy and technological attributes student nurses need if they are to succeed at the university and in the nursing profession. The paper first outlines the management systems supporting the two courses and how they intersect with the e-learning and e-assessment components of the course design. These pedagogical choices are then reviewed. While there are lessons to be learnt and improvements to be made, preliminary results suggest that students and staff are extremely supportive of the courses. The e-assessment is very positively received with students reporting increased confidence and competency in numeracy, as well as IT, academic, research and communication skills. (Contains 6 figures, 2 tables and 1 note.)
