Technology Enhanced Angles
Technology-Enhanced Items in Assessment I
Angle Sneak Peek:
With the introduction of assessment consortia in the US, the popularity for technologyenhanced items (TEIs), that incorporate technology beyond simple option selection as the student’s method of response, has increased substantially. The assessment consortia Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) and Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) aim to establish comprehensive, advanced computer-based assessment systems that align with the Common Core State Standards. With that, access to digital learning content has never been so important for teaching staff across the US, as they now have the additional responsibility of preparing students for these computer-based assessments.
