Description

Mathematics Education Group Research Seminar Presents:

Laura Tuohilampi

Transparency in assessment criterion and the role of continuous feedback: towards mechanical learning or vice versa?

Much research have shown that transparency in assessment criterion, as well as continuous feedback support learning. In a project implemented in the Mathematics department in the University of Helsinki, these two factors are seen as a form to elicit deeper and more complex thinking. However, some researchers have claimed that too much transparency could lead to instrumentalization. In that case the students might just superficially follow the criterion, and use the continuous feedback to correct their performance instead of really deeper in their thinking. As we have found it problematic not to provide students with feedback, or to keep the assessment criterion unclarified, we wanted to investigate the desirable balance between too much or too little of transparency plus guiding feedback. In the presentation, I will describe our assessment-centred project in Helsinki, provide a tentative analysis of the data collected during the course, and elaborate the question: How did the assessment criterion and continuous feedback, combined with technology-based learning environment and tasks that support making connections affect students learning during the course?

Laura Tuohilampi is an associate professor in mathematics education in the University of Helsinki, Finland. Her research interests address affect, engagement and the social and contextual aspects of learning. She has published a book in Finland called Math Hunger, claiming that people would be hungry for learning mathematics, if that would be properly served.
