Exploring a touch-driven foundation for assessing immersive learning with data: Direct Measurement of Graphing Performance

by Ben Erlandson (VESIC Institute)

This paper explores theoretical and practical foundations for the development of measurement instruments embedded in interactive digital graphing tools for use in unobtrusive automated formative assessment of learners’ performance when plotting and/or visualizing data as all or part of a learning task.  Practical matters of data plotting and manipulation as formative performance assessment are addressed.  Exemplary artifacts are provided as a basis for further examination and discussion of identified practical matters.
