Instructor Comments on your course -- Jz833665 18:50, 29 November 2009 (EST)

Hi Mary,

Great to see your course taking a good shape. A few comments:

1) Objective consistency: One of your course-level objectives states: After viewing literature on formative and summative assessment, participants will state the similarities and differences in the two concepts. This objective is addressed in unit 2 but is stated differently focusing on formative assessment.

2) Enhance the conceptual/pedagogical framing of each learning activity. Your unit 1 contains a self-reflection activity. You may think about if you can say something (e.g., contexts of educational reform; related educational thoughts such as teaching for understanding as a process) to background the activity and/or highlight key message after the activity (e.g., current practice and the need of formative ongoing assessment. The same suggestion applies to your other activities.
