Using Social Web (Web 2.0) Activities for Student Assessment: Resources for University Learning and Teaching

About this Wiki

The web2assessmentresources wiki has been developed for university staff who are interested in using the social web (also known as Web 2.0) to assess learning, especially where marks and grades are involved.

The resources in this wiki distil the findings from this project into introductory concepts (section 1), case studies (section 2), checklists (section 3) and further resources (section 4). They can be explored by using the sidebar menu, the tag cloud and the search box, on the left side of each wiki page.

Resources can be downloaded and printed in sections using the "page" tab on each page. The most recent collected edition of these resources can be downloaded as a single PDF: web2assessmentresources_20110923.pdf

Alternatively, a complementary printable version of the resources is available here: ASW2A_ResourcesDocument_Sep22.pdf (Note this document is 1.12 MB)

About the project

This wiki is a product of a project "Web 2.0 Authoring Tools in Higher Education Learning and Teaching: New Directions for Assessment and Academic Integrity". This project was undertaken as a partnership by the University of Melbourne, Monash University and RMIT University and supported by the Australian Learning and Teaching Council between 2009 and 2011. The project team comprised Kathleen Gray, Jenny Waycott, Celia Thompson, Rosemary Clerehan, Judithe Sheard, Margaret Hamilton, and Joan Richardson. More information about the project team can be found here.

The project had three main stages: examining current practices; inviting discussion about the issues raised; and developing and field-testing resources to improve practice. An advisory group assisted with project conceptualisation and broad dissemination. A reference group advised on integration of the project within the partner universities. A pilot group contributed case studies and workshopped ideas about good practice. A full list of acknowledgements is provided here.
