Assessing Learning in a Technology-Supported Genetics Environment: Evidential and Systemic Validity Issues
Educational Assessment Volume 6, Number 3, ISSN 1062-7197
Developed a system for assessing students' reasoning proficiency in introductory genetics in the computer-supported environment GenScope (tm). Studied whether the assessment system helped students develop the understanding it was designed to assess. Results from 11 high school classes showing strong evidential validity and limited consequential validity were used to develop new formative assessments. (SLD)
