1. Analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of technology tools for quantitative and qualitative data collection, providing relevant details. 2. Delineates a full process, including relevant research and best practices, for choosing technology tools for data collection. 3. Analyzes one quantitative data collection tool to collect valid, reliable assessment data on student learning and engagement. 4. Analyzes one qualitative data collection tool to collect valid, reliable assessment data on student learning and engagement. Introduction Vila Health: Developing an Operating Budget To complete this activity, please observe the scenario, then answer the follow up questions and click “Complete Activity”. Madison Middle School has implemented a new one-on-one-laptop program. The program is controversial, and both fans and opponents feel like they have “evidence” to support their position on how students are actually using the laptops. So is the program successful or not? Instead of relying on personal experience and hearsay, a better approach in situation like this is to collect data based evidence. Faculty Weekly Meeting Principal Heather Ramsey “The agenda for this week’s meeting is to discuss how the one to one laptop program is going. What do you think?” Steve Figueroa, Math Teacher “Well, I think the kids really like them! They seem to be using them a lot!” Victoria Garcia, English Teacher “I think they’re checking Instagram and playing games. Seems like we spent a lot of money to entertain, rather than educate!” Principal Heather Ramsey “So, you’re saying that we may not be getting a professional return on our investment?” Jenae Monroe-Keller, Social Studies Teacher “I’ve seen some changes in my class that seem to indicate that the kids are more engaged in learning something but it’s a feeling more than anything else.” Principal Heather Ramsey “Sounds like we need to go at this professionally and collect some evidence that can show us if we are getting educationally sound returns on our investment.” Steve Figueroa, Math Teacher “Hey remember the exercise we did last week where we found out about technology tools we can use to collect real data? Why don’t we try one or two of those?” Victoria Garcia, English Teacher “I really liked Kahout. It looked like fun. What kind of data can you get with Kahout?” Jenae Monroe-Keller, Social Studies Teacher “I think that one gives us quantitative data – you know, numbers or scores on quizzes.” Steve Figueroa, Math Teacher “What do you say we each check out a tool we can use for quantitative data and a tool that will give us a qualitative look at how the kids (and we) are doing? We can use the info we got from that demo last week?”

Description

 

 

Collection of reliable assessment data on student learning and engagement using appropriate technology tools (6-10 pages).

Instructions

View the Riverbend City media simulation attached below to use as the context for your assessment:

Once you have completed the simulation, imagine yourself as one of the 8th grade teachers at Riverbend City Middle School who is collecting data to answer the question presented by your school principal. Complete and submit the following components:

  • Articulate the strengths and weaknesses of technology tools for quantitative and qualitative data collection. Briefly annotate the characteristics of at least two qualitative and two quantitative data collection tools. (Walk through the different technology tools available to collect data, what they can do, what they cannot do, and whether they might work for your particular needs—formative assessment or summative assessment data collection, quantitative or qualitative data, et cetera.)
  • Describe the tools you chose and the process you used to choose the right technology tools for data collection to answer the questions. How is your decision supported by research and best practices to choose the right data collection technology?
  • Apply at least one qualitative and one quantitative data collection technology tool to collect valid, reliable assessment data on student learning and engagement. Submit cleaned up data that is ready to be analyzed.
