AQA wins a NAACE ICT Impact Award through a project utilising TAG's e-assessment technologies
The Assessment and Qualification Alliance (AQA) has just won a prestigious NAACE ICT Impact Award within the Post Compulsory Education Award for their developmental work on AQA Baccalaureate Enrichment Diary.
The award was presented to the AQA Baccalaureate Team by Lord Knight at a Gala Dinner at the end of the first day of the NAACE Annual Conference in Reading.
The AQA Baccalaureate Enrichment Diary was developed for AQA by TAG Developments and is based on TAG's multi-award winning MAPS e-Assessment platform. The Enrichment Diary is provided to all schools and colleges delivering the AQA Baccalaureate to provide students with a means to capture and reflect on their extra-curricular activities relating to this qualification. The Enrichment Diary has proved to be highly popular with students, providing them with familiar social media style tools that enable them to upload digital evidence of learning from a computer or directly from a mobile phone via SMS/MMS, to a blog where they can reflect on their progress and achievements. The diary has also proved very popular with teachers, enabling them to gain a far greater insight into the achievements of their students and also reducing the time and effort in maintaining paper-based portfolios.
