This assessment focuses on the facts around first aid and CPR. Students will demonstrate their knowledge by answering questions in a variety of forms (true/false, fill in the blank, multiple choice, open response and a case study). This assessment satisfies Massachusetts Health Framework 9.19 which states that “through the study of Emergency intervention students will be able to demonstrate appropriate first aid for stings,bites, broken bones, bleeding, chocking, shock, poisoning, burns and cardiac arrest.”
Even though Schoology has a lot of the same great tools as Haiku, Google Classroom and Desire to Learn, it goes above and beyond making online learning easy for students. Students are already used to its Facebook style allowing them to dive right into the Content Management System. Teachers and students can log in to their accounts through multiple electronic devices making learning happen everywhere they can get internet connection.
I believe that Schoology's assessment is the perfect system to handle this assessment because of it's flexible options. For example, because the students are taking this assessment prior to their final, I will allow the students to take the assessment five times so that they can retake the quiz. However, the program, will take the average of all the quizzes and give it a final score. This allows students to retake the quiz and hopefully help them learn from their wrong answers. Although the questions will not change, the order of the questions and answers can be customized so that way students do not copy or share answers. I can break down the stats and see how each student answered each question. If a majority of the students got question #4 wrong, I can take a look to see if it is a fair question and either throw out the question or spend more time on the topic in class.
