Another round of Feedback -- Dbyrne (talk) 12:00, 13 November 2014 (EST)

Hi Alycia,

I've included some feedback below in bold within a copy of the text from your portfolio.

• In a classroom setting, learners will create three assessments utilizing GradeCam, Grade Ninja, and ZipGrade applications and providing feedback for all given a checklist.[This is a good start, now set the conditions and desired outcomes from the ABCD model in the ID text]

• In real world classroom application, learners will grade assessments in a more timely manner leaving room in their schedule for added analysis of assessments. [This would be considered a benefit of this course – perhaps add it to the introduction. To be a learning objective, this should be based upon an activity that is observable to you within the mini-course (if the course is interactive), or is measurable in some other way (quiz, self-assessment, etc.) if the mini-course is self-directed]

• Within discussion forums, learners will discuss pros and cons for each application for grading with a camera.

• In a written response, learners will predict how this technology can be added to for future use.


[same comment for the last two – set the conditions and desired outcomes]

By voting at the end of the mini-course, learners will determine which application for grading with a camera they prefer to use based on research given.

[Think about the learning objectives for having your students vote at the end of the course or predict future developments of the technology – does this help to achieve understanding of the content in some way? Reinforce it? Show the transfer of skills? I don’t immediately see a pedagogical connection…]


  1. 1. What Exactly is Grading With a Camera?

Learners will be able to answer frequently asked questions about the topic.

  1. 2. GradeCam

Learners will establish and discuss the pros and cons of GradeCam specific to their classroom use.

Learners will create an assessment utilizing the GradeCam application and provide feedback for it given a checklist. [Same general comment about the use of checklists – are you checking for understanding, or are they giving product feedback?]

  1. 3. ZipGrade

Learners will establish and discuss the pros and cons of ZipGrade specific to their classroom use.

Learners will create an assessment utilizing the ZipGrade application and provide feedback for it given a checklist.

  1. 4. Grade Ninja

Learners will establish and discuss the pros and cons of Grade Ninja specific to their classroom use.

Learners will create an assessment utilizing the Grade Ninja application and provide feedback for it given a checklist.

  1. 5. All of the Possibilities

Learners will rate the applications in order from most preferred to least preferred with the use of a rating scale. [same comment as with the vote above]

Learners will identify all possible uses for the applications.

Learners will analyze future use of grading with a camera in classrooms.


[perhaps you can create a quiz or other type of activity to check for understanding?]

Good start - I think you will have a much clearer path as you fine-tune your learning objectives. Deb
