Rubrics to Measure Student Learning http://bit.ly/10gcowx Rubrics to Measure Student Learning
A common question that we get with regard to technology projects is "how do I grade it?" The 21st-century communication and collaboration skills which are used with most technology based projects are, in many ways, real-world problem-solving skills. The standard, multiple-choice type tests simply are not going to be able to assess students' learning. Instead of thinking of the assessment itself as the measurement, we are going to need to examine our students' performances of understanding. In other words, the assessment is the tool through which we can gauge how much our students have learned.

The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) http://fcit.usf.edu/matrix/matrix.php The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM)
illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells as illustrated here.

e-Assessment glossary http://www.jisc.ac.uk/assessment.htm e-Assessment glossary
Assessment is a critical issue for post-16, higher education (HE) and the wider education community and is recognised within the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) unified e-learning strategy as fundamental to its success and as an important factor in delivering the new proposals. JISC recognised the importance of e-assessment for the UK education and research community in the late 1990ís as part of the groundbreaking work on Managed Learning Environments and work on standards.
A series of outputs from JISC have mapped the e-assessment domain for developers, managers and practitioners in further and higher education to clarify and illustrate the key terms, issues and achievements in this field.
Information is given below about each of these important contributions to a wider understanding of e-assessment.
