2022 First-Year Engineering Experience

Workshop: Introduction to Adaptive Comparative Judgement: A Holistic Assessment tool for Design Problems

Presented at Technical Session M4C

This workshop is an interactive session where participants will experience an exciting approach for holistically assessing design problems, Adaptive Comparative Judgement (ACJ). ACJ is an adaptive software tool that can be used by students and faculty to assess students’ work holistically and reliably. This tool can be used to reduce the grading load associated with project work and reduce the time taken to grade and provide feedback to students. The goal of this workshop is to introduce participants to the ACJ approach. The process underpinning the ACJ software tool will be explored, and participants will be taken through the procedure of setting up an ACJ session and given the opportunity to experience the process of assessment using the ACJ tool. Following this hands-on experience of ACJ, participants and facilitators will discuss the possible benefits and challenges of using ACJ in a formative and summative assessment capacity with first-year engineering students. Workshop attendees will require a device that is wireless fidelity enabled.
