  4. Inside the Black Box: ICT

    In the ever-evolving climate of ICT education, formative assessment practices have an essential role to play, since their purpose is to enable teachers to sift the rich data that arise in class discussion and activity so that professional judgements can be made about the next steps in learning. In this book, the authors offer advice to ICT teachers on how to use formative assessment to interact more effectively with students and promote learning. They set out in detail four main ways of practising formative assessment in an ICT setting, outlining assessment techniques that encourage learners to bring their ideas to the fore. Using these methods, teachers can gauge what students already know, while assessing learners’ analytical skills and how they approach a design task.
