Michael Neal: a nice discussion of the challenges of rubrics for new media and multimodal composition. Referenced Broad's Beyond Rubrics--a programmatic discussion of new media texts would be interesting.
Michael Day has posted his presentation on e-portfolios at Northern Illinois U. Showed / emphasized an online scoring form used--could be a useful addition to our assessment, even if we don't use e-portfolios. Sounds like only the TIs at NIU use e-portfolios; looks like only a handful of people read and score the portfolio. Helps me understand what it might take to develop e-portfolios more effectively. Using Mozilla composer and FTP to compose.
The third speaker, Brittany Cottrill, was not able to attend, but she sent her paper to be read: "E-portfolio alternatives, blogs, and academic showcases."
Discussion afterward had some emphasis on the role of prewriting and drafting in assessment. We have been discussing this in our program, and interestingly our teachers aren't particularly interested in seeing student drafts. I wonder if there is a place for a post-process analysis of portfolio assessment?
