Background Definition of ICT education: "the capacity of people to utilize ICT fittingly to get to, oversee, incorporate and assess data, grow new understandings, and speak with others so as to take part viably in the public eye" Three strands Working with data (hunt and recovery) Creating and sharing data (adjusting, controlling, composing) Using ICT dependably (understanding effect and outcomes)

Slide 3

Computer-based appraisal Mini-labs of PCs Six PCs for every lab (5 understudy, connected with 1 chairman) Identically arranged and stacked with all product Loaded with understudy enlistment data Purpose-created programming Simulation things (Skillcheck) Native applications with items spared Contained in a wrapper with consistent move (SoNET) ACER programming for on-line stamping and standard setting Administration Trained chairmen to every school Results sent to ACER by CD (additionally saved money on hard plate) Development Small-scale pilots – in late 2004 and mid 2005 Field trial (617 understudies/66 schools) 4 weeks in mid 2005

Slide 4

Assessment Items/Tasks MCQ – auto scored Short built reaction – marker scored Software reproduction (aptitudes) – auto scored Live programming applications a few abilities and some bigger undertakings labeled document spared and marker scored Items gathered in modules (25 min). Story subject to every module.

Slide 5

Assessment modules General aptitudes test Simulated abilities and MCQ Six cross breed evaluation modules (HAM) Seamless mixes of thing/undertaking sorts Simulation aptitudes and examination errands MCQ & short built reaction assignments Large live programming application undertaking Common and particular to year levels One Y6 just HAM One Y10 just HAM Four Y6 and 10 HAMs

50 minutes 10 minutes 15 minutes 15 minutes Any two (evaluation proper) HAM Above GST cut-score Confirmation of enrollment subtle elements and test taking directions Student Background Survey General Skills Test Two minimum testing Below GST cut-score HAM Assessment process

Slide 7

Sampling and Scaling Two-stage PPS group test 7,400 understudies 520 schools 10 weeks in late 2005 Rasch (thing reaction hypothesis) 227 things seven modules (distinctive trouble) Items/persons on a typical scale Person partition file (unwavering quality) = 0.93

Slide 10

Reporting ICT education Reporting scale Year 6 mean = 400, Year 6 standard deviation = 100 Proficiency levels Six capability levels of equivalent width (in trouble) Width is 125 scale focuses Descriptors of every level taking into account things Percentage of understudies in every level

Slide 11

Sample depictions Level 1: Students working at level 1 perform essential errands utilizing PCs and programming. They actualize the most normally utilized document administration and programming charges when educated. They perceive the most regularly utilized ICT wording and capacities. Level 3: Students working at level 3 create basic general pursuit addresses and select the best data source to meet a particular reason. They recover data from given electronic sources to answer particular, solid inquiries. They gather data in a gave straightforward direct request to make data items. They utilize expectedly perceived programming charges to alter and reformat data items. They perceive regular case in which ICT abuse may happen and recommend methods for staying away from them. Level 5: Students working at level 5 assess the believability of data from electronic sources and select the most applicable data to use for a particular open reason. They make data items that show proof of arranging and specialized ability. They utilize programming elements to reshape and give data graphically reliable presentation traditions. They plan data items that consolidate diverse components and precisely speak to their source information. They utilize accessible programming components to improve the presence of their data items.
