Welcome to the 21st Century Student Workspaces at Innovation Assessments
21st Century Workspaces
The discussion forum is a specialized digital workspace designed for structured academic discussions in a middle and high school context.
It's an ideal space for moderating formal class discussions online. Built-in features that promote more effective participation include a citation generator, logical fallacy flag system, and easy grading.
Scoring participation in online discussions is difficult.
It's important to see the thread and the replies. At Innovation Assessments, scoring is very easy. The app shows you the student's posts and replies to all other threads. There are two rubrics installed already that are good measures of discussion quality.
Students can work out their thoughts in draft form and save to Innovation Assessments before posting to public view.
