Interactive assessments in open source textbooks
December 9 to December 13, 2019
American Institute of Mathematics,
San Jose, California
and Oscar Levin
This workshop will be devoted to improving the quality of open educational resources and increasing their adoption. Specifically, the workshop seeks to transform open textbooks to better support instructors in the assessment of students.
The main goals for the workshop
- Draft specification for interactive elements,
including assessments, that seamlessly integrate into the textbook allowing dynamic updating of content throughout the text to create a customized learning trajectory for individual learners.
- Identify best practices for creating and selecting
pedagogical features within open textbooks, such as reading questions, graphical manipulatives, animations, videos, and scaffolded multi-step problems.
- Investigate methods of storing and analyzing
learner events in a decentralized and scalable manner so that instructors can freely and easily assess their students and authors can universally assess their textbooks.
