How to Make Learning Visible through Technology: The eDia-Online Diagnostic Assessment System

Gyöngyvér Molnár, Benő Csapó

Abstract

The aims of this paper are: to show how the use of technology and the power of regular feedback can support personalized learning. The paper outlines a three-dimensional model of knowledge, which forms the theoretical foundation of the eDia system, it summarizes how results from research on learning and instruction, cognitive sciences and technology-based assessment can be integrated into a comprehensive online system, and it shows how such assessment can be implemented and used in everyday school practice to make learning visible, especially in the fields of mathematics, reading and science. The eDia system contains almost 20,000 innovative (multimedia-supported) tasks in the fields of mathematics, reading and science. A three-dimensional approach distinguishes the content, application and reasoning aspects of learning. The sample for the experimental study was drawn from first-to sixth-grade students (aged 7 to 12) in Hungarian primary schools. There were 505 classes from 134 schools (N=10,737) in the sample. Results confirmed that technology-based assessment can be used to make students’ learning visible in the three main domains of schooling, independently of the grade measured. Item bank and scale-based assessment and detailed feedback can be used to support learning in a school context.
