Assessing the Quality of K-12 Online Content: A Sample Assessment Rubric
May 28, 2008
Lara Jongedijk, University of Calgary, Canada
What factors create an effective online course from a “content” point of view? This session will highlight the assessment criteria and the review process that was used to review the content of K-12 online learning tools in BC in 2007. Content reviewed included: online courses and learning objects. To complete the reviews, the BC Provincial Content Review team researched and built a comprehensive assessment rubric for online content based on the BC K-12 DL Standards Document and on current research which highlights effective practice in online learning. This session will highlight the assessment rubric that was created and the criteria that contribute to effective content in an online environment. The session is intended as a collegial discussion on the topic of assessing online content. For maximum benefit please review the assessment documents (link are provided below) prior to the session so that the discussion can focus on practical implications and applications for your educational community.
