PORTLAND STATE UNIVERSITY
Whether your learners are engaged in simulations, community projects, placements, or work integrated learning contexts, PebblePad can support your learning and assessment design with functionality for a range of assessment activities – reflection and analysis, portfolio assessment, competency-based assessment, video tasks, peer review… and more.
Learning opportunities happen in a wide variety of contexts and being able to capture evidence of learning and skill development that occurs beyond traditional lectures or tutorials is crucial. The PebblePocket app allows learners to record evidence of stages of skill development – anytime, anywhere it occurs, even offline.
Currently, around 84,000 external assessors, mentors and supervisors regularly and securely access PebblePad to support students on placement, internships and undertaking work-integrated learning. Even when students are being assessed off-campus, real-time insight allows university staff to track progress, with the ability to support students while they are still in situ. And for the bigger picture, our reporting functionality lets you see at a glance how a cohort is tracking.
PebblePad supports processes like blind and double-blind marking, moderation, external examination, assessment sets, peer-review and dialogic feedback, along with some very unique features like pausing, the ability to view submissions in previous stages and feedback templates. And supporting this at scale is no problem. If you'd like to see how PebblePad stacks up against other platforms in the way it supports feedback and assessment, then our comparison toolkit with over 300 areas for consideration is a must-have resource.
