“Managing Assessment within a Personal Learning System.”

Many institutional tools, such as Learning Management Systems (LMS) now contain assessment management tools enabling students to submit assignments and receive electronic feedback and grades in return. However, these institutional tools can often result in a blurring of boundaries between institutional and personalized learning approaches.

This demonstration will show how the Personal Learning System (PLS), PebblePad, successfully combines both personalized learning and institutional assessment processes using a component tool of PebblePad, known as the ‘Gateway’. The concept of managing assessments within a personalized learning system is based on examples from our customers across Europe & Australia.
