Title: Aligning assessment methods with different types of competences in Engineering
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: The TALOE (Time to Assess Learning Outcomes in E-learning) EU-funded project approaches the eassessmentconcept by using technology for assessing student's learning. The project is building onthe foundations of previous developments on this issue, an existing tool for the Alignment of LearningOutcomes and Assessment, the ALOA model, which uses the revised version of Bloom's Taxonomy toestablish the link between the LOs and general assessment methods. The TALOE project uses thesame methodology but adapted to the specific context of e-learning and e-assessment. The main goalof TALOE is to develop a web-based platform to help teachers and trainers decide on the eassessmentstrategies to use in their online courses. This tool is aimed to raise teachers awarenessabout the variety of e-assessment strategies in order to achieve better quality of the learning process.TALOE assumes that a teacher/trainer will describe the learning outcomes of the course or moduleand then use the TALOE web tool online to analyse them and provide the most appropriated eassessmentstrategy that is consistent with the set of intended learning outcomes. In order to achievethis, the TALOE consortium has:- conducted desk research and selected innovative e-assessment practices that take advantage of theuse of technology;- developed a web-based tool that is easy to use by the stakeholders;- tested the implementation of the tool with real case studies;- promoted the TALOE tool among the communities of stakeholders who have accepted to test theweb tool and give feedback.During the EDULEARN session, the TALOE web tool will be presented and demonstrated, soparticipants can see how it works.
