Learning Outcomes and Assessment
This article talks about measuring learning outcomes in MOOC settings. It does have some good points. They pointed out that current peer grading is like producing teacher clones which might not be the best approach. It is problematic that we ask peers to rate each other like a teacher would. I was thinking that instead of giving peers holistic scores, learners would simply extract features that would be helpful to predict or classify learning outcomes. It is pretty funny they mentioned "teachers grade students in the way the USDA grades beef." The image is just hilarious.
