AACTS - Development of a pedagogic model using authentic assessment to drive development of higher order cognitive skills

This is the final report from a National Teaching Fellowship project that aimed to develop a pedagogic model to enhance students’ ability to identify and discriminate effectively in their use of online resources.

Designed to maximise the use of digital resources in professional learning the AACTS model (Authentic Assessment for Critical Thinking Skills) was supported by an online tool the web-resource appraisal platform (WRAP). This guided students through a structured process helping them develop their skills to discriminate and select between online resources.

The project contributes to the knowledge base underpinning pedagogy pertinent to the use of technology in authentic assessment as well providing practical products for wider dissemination and take-up.
