The DRF Assessment System is a collection of tools designed to enable an organization to define, organize, evaluate, and report on a folio of work products.
Preparing to use the DRF Assessment System consists of two steps. The first step is to design a Directed Response Folio (DRF) Template that defines work requirements and associated methods of evaluation.
This presentation will provide an overview of the different components of the DRF Assessment System.
This presentation will walk through the best practices for setting up the DRF assessment system for the following uses:
The DRF Template outlines the tasks or requirements that will be scored in a program to which authors will respond. Using the DRF Template Builder, the TS Coordinator determines the outline or structure for the folio, adds directions for the author, and assigns a corresponding evaluation method for each area.
This guide will provide instructions for constructing a DRF Template.
When assigning evaluation methods to requirements in a DRF Template, the following will be decided:
This guide provides information about the evaluation methods available and instructions for assigning them.
The DRF Program defines and provides the structure for how participating individuals work with a selected Directed Response Folio (DRF). When creating a DRF Program, numerous preferences are set and participants are enrolled as Authors, Reviewers, and/or Evaluators to facilitate how work will be done, scored, and distributed.
This guide provides step by step instructions for creating a DRF Program.
If the Multiple Groups option has been selected as part of the DRF Program setup, it requires groups to be manually created in order to pair Authors with Evaluators.
This guide provides step by step instructions for creating and managing manual groups.
The reporting tools available for DRF Programs aggregate student portfolio (DRF) data. This data can include student activity, student work submissions, evaluations, and successful alignment to standards.
It is possible to generate reports on both individuals and groups. Many reports can be exported to Microsoft Excel for manipulation, archiving, or both. These reports can aid in determination of individual performance and form the basis for formative Program/Unit evaluations and institutional accreditation.
These guides will provide step by step instructions for generating each of the DRF Reports available in LAT.
After the DRF Assessment system has been in use for a period of time, it may be necessary to copy the DRF Template and/or DRF Program in certain situations such as:
