Students use assignment activity to record an audio defence – Principle 11

October 15, 2019 0 By Kailee Schamberger


including a defense component in an
assessment can be an effective way of encouraging student authenticity and
promoting good academic integrity. students will be unable to defend their
work successfully if they did not prepare the assessment themselves adding
a defense component to an assessment means they must complete the work
themselves let’s look at how you might do this by taking DC’s virtual learning
environment loop as an example the assignment activity in loop can accept a
variety of files and file formats so in addition to requesting students to
submit their assessment be in a written paper a poster a presentation and so on
you can also ask them to submit their defense which could be a written defense
reflective defense from their e-portfolio a video or an audio clip and
so on on your loop course page click turn editing on
and click add an activity or resource and select assignment use the name and description fields to
give a title for the assignment and directions to students as to what they
should do in addition to asking students to submit
a written paper I am going to ask them to record an audio clip in which to
defend their work configure the date settings for the
assignment and then proceed to the submission types area there are three
types of submission available a loop reflect page where students can submit
work from their e-portfolio a file submission where students upload one or
more files to loop and online text where students can type directly into the
assignment but also use the features of the HTML text editor to record audio and
video I’m going to select file submissions in this instance because I
want them to upload a written paper and I’m also going to select online text
because I want them to use the HTML text editor to record an audio clip for their
defense loop reflect could be another submission type to utilize if you wanted
them to write a reflective defense of their work in their e-portfolio and then
submit that proceeded to configure the rest of the
settings as per your needs you may want to give some thought as to how you grade
the students using a scale perhaps or by using a grades and a particular
grading method like a marking guide or a rubric
the advantage of that is that they can see the grading criteria in advance of
their assessment and this links to principle four click Save and return to
course when finished students submit to the assignment as
normal in this case uploading their written paper and also recording an
audio clip using the online text editor and when the deadline passes you as the
teacher can go into the assignment to retrieve the submissions and start
grading click great the gradient screen for the first
student opens and on the left you can read their submission and a notice and
on the right you can access their audio clip and also the rubric collapse the submission by clicking the
collapse review panel button on the bottom right clicking the play icon in the audio clip
will allow you to listen to the defense of the work this is my audio defense of my written
paper on Parnell at Home Rule you
