• Design Origins
• Feature Overview
– Focus on pedagogical flexibility using
templates
• Short Demo
• Futures
www.sakaiproject.org
2
Where did the design originate?
• Formative Assessment (Homework)
– Stanford Assignment Tool for Human Biology
– CourseWork CMS with Language Tools
(Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded)
– OKI Tools Workshop to Specify Functionality
(Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded)
– OKI Formative Assessment Tool
(Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded)
• Summative Assessment (High-Stakes tests)
– OnCourse Quiz Tool
www.sakaiproject.org
3
Where did the design originate?
• OKI Tools Workshop
– Many schools met to define needs for a CMS
– One group specified the needs for an
Assessment Tool
– Several hundred functional requirements
identified
www.sakaiproject.org
4
Where did the design originate?
• Assignment and Assessment Manager
– Supports teaching and learning in
large lecture science courses and in language
instruction
– This OKI Tool was developed at Stanford
– Andrew W. Mellon Foundation funded
www.sakaiproject.org
5
Where did the design originate?
• AAM design combined with OnCourse
Quiz tool design “Navigo” (2003)
• Stanford and Indiana join Sakai project,
Stanford rewrites tool to Sakai Style Guide
TPP, tool renamed SAMigo (2004-present)

Templates
• Create assessment “types” for different
disciplines, different uses
• Hide complexity by selecting what which
settings are visible to the instructor.
• Pre-set defaults by making setting choices
for the type (e.g., Self-study always has
immediate feedback)

T&Q 2.1 Highlights
• “Section-Aware” grading - assessments
filtered by section (e.g. discussion, lab)
• Workflow improvements (based on 2.0.1
usability testing)
• Code refactored to expose tool API
– looser coupling to Sakai (or other CMS)
– clean stand-alone build
www.sakaiproject.org
61
T&Q post-2.1 Future
• Audio-recording question type (Stanford)
• Others
– Export assessment results
– Release assessments to specific classes and
sections
– Department/school-level templates
– Question Pool sharing by group, import/export
www.sakaiproject.org
62
NEW! Assessment Tools DG
• First BOF
– Time: Thursday 7:30-8:30am
– Location: Salon J
• Possible Topics
– current usage and best use recommendations for assessment tools
within Sakai
– assessment pedagogy (both formative and summative)
– user interaction and tool design
– assessment tool interoperability with other tools (e.g. Tests & Quizzes
with Gradebook) and standards compliance (e.g. IMS-QTI)
– process for feature requests and prioritization
– future plans for assessment tools
