簡介

為開展討論及推行果效為本的評核模式,學能提升研究中心主任秦家慧教授獲邀主持是次通識午餐聚會,就成績等級描述的製訂作分享。講者將簡介大學引用果效為本教學法及標準參照評核的背景和脈絡,並就不同類型的課業,解說製訂相應成績等級描述時的考量。講者將援引學能提升研究中心的成績等級描述範例,以及一些通識老師現正或行將採用的成績等級描述作解說。各個教學單位及書院的老師及行政同事均歡迎出席是次的通識午餐聚會,參與討論。

Brief Description

To start off the discussion and the process, the Director of the Centre for Learning Enhancement And Research (CLEAR) is invited to conduct this GE lunch seminar on devising grade descriptors for the implementation of the OBA to assessment.  Apart from outlining the general background and context of OBA and criterion-referencing at CUHK, the various factors to be considered in devising suitable grade descriptors for different types of assessment components will be discussed. Reference will be made to the sample grade descriptors put up by CLEAR, as well as to some examples of grade descriptors already adopted or to be adopted by some GE teachers. Teachers and staff members of the teaching departments/units and of the Colleges are most welcome to attend this seminar and join the discussion.

背景

配合大學教務會2016年12月有關實施新修訂的大學評核政策之議決,大學各科系須自2017/18學年起全面推行果效為本(Outcome-based Approach, OBA) 的評核模式,伴隨而來的措施,包括在所有科目中引用標準參照及成績等級描述。

教務會通識教育委員會考慮到全面推行標準參照及成績等級描述可能面臨的困難,遂議決於2017/18學年採用標準參照及常模參照並行的評核模式作為過渡安排。近日大學通識教育部已請求各教學單位及書院同仁為現有的通識科目訂立成績等級描述,為邁向全面落實標準參照評核踏出一步。

Background

In line with the revised University Assessment Policy approved by the Senate in December 2016 for implementation with effect from 2017-18, the outcome-based approach (OBA), accompanied by criterion-referencing and grade descriptors, shall be in place for course assessment across the University from the 2017-18 academic year.

The Senate Committee on General Education (SCGE) reckons that full implementation of criterion-referencing and grade descriptors at once would be difficult and thus supports that a mixed model of criterion-referencing and norm-referencing would be adopted during the interim year of 2017-18. To pave the way for full implementation of criterion-referencing in General Education (GE), teaching units and Colleges are recently invited to develop grade descriptors for their existing GE courses.

評分準則與不確定性皆為吾師:透過自我評鑑和自我提問改進學生認知能力
Rubric and Uncertainty be my Guide: Fostering Better Thinking with Students’ Self-Evaluation and Self-Questioning in the Classroom

日期 Date : 2017-12-04 (星期一 Monday)
時間 Time:12:30 pm to 2:00 pm
地點 Venue: 香港中文大學許讓成樓 701, Hui Yeung Shing Huilding, The Chinese University of Hong Kong
講者 Speaker: 

高莘博士、吳俊博士、楊陽博士 (通識教育基礎課程)
Dr Gao Xin, Dr. Wu Jun and Dr. Yeung Yang (General Education Foundation Programme)

簡介

由通識教育基礎課程老師組成的敘說質性評核Narrative Qualitative Assessment (NQA)研究小組,採用Wolcott-Lynch 名為“Steps for Better Thinking”的理論,以質性研究的方式,了解學生解決開放式問題的學習表現。受此理論啟發,參與的老師亦設計了學生自我感知和自我評價的課堂工具。
 
高莘博士和吳俊博士在是次通識午餐聚會上,將就她們有關學生修讀通識教育基礎科目前後自我評估之認知程度的比對,作初期研究成果之匯報。通過比較老師的分析與學生的自我評價,他們迄今已收集資料,將提供線索,協助老師改善教學。

楊陽博士的分享,將集中在認知複雜程度中「辨識不確定性」的主題上面。她提出學生可透過自我提問顯示他們辨識問題不確定性的能力。通過列舉學生就科目內容提出的問題,楊博士會分享老師可以怎樣把學生的自我提問的問題分類,並匯報她就這些提問作出的回應行動。

Brief Description

In a qualitative-assessment project conducted by the Narrative Qualitative Assessment (NQA) research team formed by several teachers of General Education Foundation Programme (GEF), the Wolcott-Lynch model on “Steps for Better Thinking” was applied to study students’ performance in addressing open-ended problems. Participating teachers have been inspired to use the model in the classroom as a device for students’ self-perception and self-evaluation.

In this seminar, Dr Gao Xin and Dr Wu Jun will report on the preliminary findings of their research on students’ self-evaluation of their cognitive complexity at the beginning and at the end of a GEF course. Comparison of the students’ self-evaluation will be made with teachers’ analyses, which has so far generated useful clues as to how teachers could improve on their teaching.

Dr Yeung Yang will focus on the topic of ‘identifying uncertainty’ as a component of cognitive complexity. She proposes that the ability to identify uncertainty could be demonstrated in students’ self-questioning. With examples of questions students ask about ideas in the course content, she proposes how the questions could be classified, and reports on the action she has taken in response.


講者簡介 高莘博士、吳俊博士及楊陽博士是大學通識教育部通識教育基礎課程講師。三位老師是大學通識部Narrative Qualitative Assessment (NQA) 研究小組的核心成員。她們借鑒Wolcott-Lynch的NQA理論,評核學生的認知程度。NQA見著於以敘說方式,就學生學習成果作質性分析。
