A range of eAssessment practices take place within Anglia Ruskin (ie assessment that in some way involves a computer), and this is an intense area of development and support.
Currently, three platforms are centrally provided to support assessment activities:
We are also moving over to our new Learning Management System, Canvas (to replace our VLE). The move to Canvas opens up a number of opportunities that have not previously existed, and in due course we hope to extend existing use and offer more varied eAssessment possibilities. Of particular immediate focus are issues such as more flexible submission options (eg larger file sizes), portfolio assessment and peer assessment.
We are also keen to expand how eAssessment is seen and practiced at Anglia Ruskin (eg through blogs, Twitter).
For more information about the Staff development and support programme, please visit our Canvas LMS page.
Aside from the centrally available platforms, there are a range of tools out there that can energise learning and support formative assessment.
