Abstract

In this paper we describe our research and development efforts to integrate assessment and instruction in ways that provide immediate feedback to students and meaningful data for our Digital Dashboard for Learning (DDL). The DDL is an instructional tool that collects learning data as students work through online instructional activities, summarizes the data, and displays meaningful indicators of students’ progress so that (1) faculty can monitor students’ progress and intervene where necessary and (2) students can monitor and adapt their own progress through their learning. We will review the importance of embedding ongoing formative assessment and feedback into online instructional activities and aligning the student data collected from these activities so that it can be used to inform and modify the learning activities of the students as well as the teaching activities of the instructor. We will also describe our new assessment platform that enables course designers to construct feedback customized to the students’ needs.
