3 Computer Applications Assessment Tools Student Use of Applications Word processors, presentation tools, databases and spreadsheets are amongst computer applications designed to manage information, increase productivity and facilitate communication and creativity. They are pervasive in homes, businesses and educational settings and mastery of them is considered one of the 21st century s essential literacies. In school settings, students can use these tools in a variety of disciplines. Teachers are challenged to find opportunities for students to learn to use a variety of applications. In Learning Phase A, students are learning about the applications under the guidance and assistance of the teacher. They develop a basic understanding of what the applications can do and their unique features. In Learning Phase B, students are developing their independent use of the applications and are increasingly putting them to use to communicate, solve problems and display their learning. They should have a solid skill set and fluency with applications prior to moving to Learning Phase C. The Applications Word Processor: MS Works Use word processing for Desktop Publishing: MS Publisher KidPix Use desk top publishing for Multimedia Presentations: MS PowerPoint Use presentations for Spreadsheets: MS Excel Students can use the word processor to create, edit, proofread and print a variety of text documents. Photos and graphics can also be added to enhance communication. The ability for students to easily review and edit their work facilitates the writing process. reports poems stories speeches letters pamphlets plays The ability to manipulate the layout of printed documents characterizes desktop publishing software. Templates help students make attractive publications with professional looking results. pamphlets fliers calendars newsletters posters invitations certificates Use this software to create onscreen multimedia presentations. Students can incorporate text, graphics, animation, sound and video to teach, report, entertain or communicate new ideas. learning tools oral presentations reports stories Spreadsheets are tables used to store data in the form of words and values. With spreadsheet software, students can perform calculations and display data as charts and graphs that make it easier for them to interpret data. Use spreadsheets for calculations tables charts graphs More ideas begin on page 23. Page 3

4 Assessing Student Work As students learn to use the applications, they are using a number of skills simultaneously. For example, when using a presentation tool, students must consider file management, layout, effects and animation all for the same assignment. Additionally spelling, accuracy of content and alignment to genre criteria are also key factors included in the final product. For these reasons, rubrics are indispensable tools for assessing student work. Using Performance Rubrics These performance charts describe student degrees of proficiency in the use of the following computer applications: word processor, desktop publisher, presentation tool and spreadsheet. The performance charts range from Primary One to Primary Six with these applications: word processing skills P1 P6 onscreen presentations skills P2 P6 desktop publishing skills P4 P6 spreadsheets skills P4 P6 Students Written from the student s perspective, the rubrics use language that students may use to describe their ability to use these applications. The can describe their performance in terms of Needs Improvement, Satisfactory (on grade level), Good or Very Good. Students must understand that in order to qualify for one description, they must have qualified for those that come before it and that over the course of the project they can always improve their grade by using the rubric as a guide. Teachers There is one rubric for each application. The rubrics measure the mastery of general application skills and those particular to that application. Teachers can use these analytic rubrics to formatively assess student performance with these applications over the development of a project. They can be used to help students identify areas to be improved and can serve as curriculum guides to help teachers to plan the skills and knowledge they will be covering for a particular project. Thus, the rubrics serve as tools for students and teachers. Teachers can design their own strategies and tools to assess more completely the products created with these applications. Depending on the design of the assignment, additional criteria can include content knowledge, the organization of ideas, and research and planning processes. Both product and performance determine the student score. Page 4

5 The Rubrics Each one has some generic elements but then others suit the features of that particular application. Here is the Primary One rubric for word processing with an explanation key. Rubric Year Level & Application Rubric elements or assignment criteria Scales: Trying to Improve = below target Satisfactory= on target; Good = at least one level above target Very Good= at least two levels above target Descriptors for criteria Final score determined by overall rating Over the course of the assignment, a student can use the rubric to focus their efforts to improve their scores.

23 Ideas for Using Applications with Core Subjects Word Processing ELA Math Science Social Studies use for independent and guided writing across a variety of genre using photographs and pictures to convey ideas; use appropriate conventions of print, font, text size and colour spelling and grammar to convey meaning; use the features of the word processor to enhance the writing process such as editing, spell check use word processing features to communicate using mathematical language; use for writing word problems or explanations to problems; writing self assessments and communicating about a topic, concept or problem solving, use to produce journals, poems, stories, reports, letters, constructed answers incorporating scientific language and graphics; use to create documents relating to scientific observations, experimentation, comparisons, exploration and collection of evidence; use to create tables for classification, log and tally sheet and other tools for investigations use to produce journals, poems, stories, reports, letters, plays and constructed answers related to historical content/events Desktop Publishing ELA use layout features to incorporate text, graphics, photographs and pictures to convey ideas; create books; calendars; photo essays; graphic interpretations; greeting cards, posters, newsletters, exploring different styles and formats of print materials Math Science Social Studies use to create a variety of documents using layouts, formatting, graphics and shapes to communicate mathematical concepts, to teach processes and to demonstrate problem solving strategies use to create pamphlets and books detailing investigations; posters, fliers, multi fold projects; use graphics, photographs, text and layout to document investigations and to organize results and communicate findings use a variety of layouts to document events and outcomes, create timelines and present research Page 23

24 Presentations ELA Science use to promote listening and speaking skills with audio/visual presentations; use for retelling accompanied by on-screen presentation including dramatization and oral reports; use presentations to support responding to questions and adapting presentations/content for different audiences use to create presentations designed to teach others about the process and outcomes of science investigations, present information gathered from research using text, graphics, animation and hyperlinks Social Studies use to create presentations designed to teach others about the process and information gathered from research and to create an online presentation illustrating a historical event including original art, text and graphics to illustrate the main points Spreadsheets ELA Math Science Social Studies use to create simple graphs and to organize information gathered from original or other texts Enter data into a table and create simple graphs; enter data to perform simple calculations; use the graphs with other applications to communicate math concepts; explore a variety of graph types using data students collect and enter into a table on a spreadsheet collect and chart data from science experiments; generate graphs and create questions that the graph may answer use survey data to create graphs; use graphs to compare data collected over time Page 24

25 Word Processing Supports Developing Writers Advanced Organizer with Cues: Create a template using the characteristics of the style of writing to create cues for students to recognize and include all of these elements. Brainstorming and Planning Tools: MS Word s Smart Charts facilitate group or independent exploration of themes or topics for informational writing. Fictional writing can be enhanced with the features of text and pictures/graphics motivating even reluctant writers. Editing features alert students to spelling errors and alternative words. Desktop Publishing Ideas for All Areas Students incorporate note taking and research with the flexible layouts of newsletter templates. Use this format for fiction and non-fiction genres. Use brochure and poster layouts to quickly create book reports that identify and discuss the characteristics of a particular style of writing as students explore similarities and differences amongst genre. Posters are also a good layout for persuasive writing. MS Publisher also has templates that create booklets for students of all ages to publish their work. They can recognize themselves as authors and share their work to get feedback from peers, teachers and family. Page 25

26 Multimedia Presentations Can Support Writing Advanced Organizer with Questions: Create a template for research reports containing the KWWL questions. Students can practice note taking, and summarizing. Add pictures/graphics to create an onscreen presentation or complete as an informational writing assignment. As a planning tool, this template helps students sequence the events on a story. Students can add graphics to describe scenes and then use those graphics to generate illustrative language. Photographs, video and animation can transform a traditional piece of writing into digital storytelling. Spreadsheet Ideas for Social Studies, Health and Science Presentation tools have the advantage of printed or on-screen projects: as backdrops for plays or aids to oral presentations that students produce and judge cooperatively. This stage can be dressed up with clip art props for class performances that bring the play genre to life. Create a budget spreadsheet that calculates the how money earned for a variety of tasks contributes to the cost of a bike. Students can explore the various ways the target price can be reached and the mathematical operations in place to make the spreadsheet work. Students can use this spreadsheet to organize data found on food labels. By comparing the nutritional value of a number of food types, they can identify the relationship between the composition of foods and their caloric value. Chart weather data in a table and then display the data graphically. Students can explore the reasons for the weather pattern they see emerging in the graph as time goes on. Using pictures and colour enhances the display. Page 26
