Digital self-administered assessments: The utility of touch screen tablets as a platform for engaging, early learner assessment


This study focused on the use of a tablet-based app as a digital means of assessment that lent itself well to the necessary considerations when assessing early learners. Based on the data collected in this study through the assessment app, observations and student and teacher interviews, students as young as 44 months demonstrated the ability to self-administer and remain engaged in the assessment activities incorporated within the app. Teachers described use of the reporting interface as instructionally informative and easy to use. The paper concludes with a discussion of supportive attributes of digital platforms in the assessment of early learners and areas for future research in the field. (author abstract)
