GECon 2024 announces the Workshop Session “Enhancing Learning Outcomes: Interactive Formative Assessment using Autograding via MATLAB Grader”

This workshop on Formative Assessment demonstrates how teaching can be enhanced and how student learning can be empowered using formative assessment in digitized academic teaching by means of MATLAB Grader cloud-based autograding platform. Formative assessment is a cutting-edge educational strategy that leverages continuous feedback and assessment to enhance the learning process. Unlike summative assessment, that provides an evaluation snapshot at the end of a course, formative assessment allows for ongoing adjustments to teaching and learning methods throughout the course based on continuous feedback and autogenerated statistics. In this workshop, participants will delve into how formative assessment fosters a deeper understanding of course content, boosts student motivation, and supports the development of essential learning competencies such as critical thinking and problem-solving. During the workshop, the participants will explore the role of MATLAB Grader as a pivotal tool in this process, providing immediate performance evaluations and tailored feedback that help educators tailor their instruction to meet the evolving needs of their students. Moreover, the workshop participants will discover how MATLAB Grader integrates seamlessly into your teaching workflow, enabling them to concentrate on crafting assignments that align with learning outcomes while students engage in self-directed work. This powerful platform enables innovative teaching approaches such as the Flipped Classroom format, Project-Based Learning (PBL), via the creation of reusable digital materials/tasks for autograding, allowing students to learn at their own pace. By attending our workshop, educators will learn how to harness the full potential of MATLAB Grader to streamline the formative assessment process. Workshop participants will gain insights into how automated feedback and the generation of insightful statistics can transform their teaching approach, making it easier to identify and address the specific areas where students need support. This workshop will enable educators to revolutionize their academic teaching with MATLAB Grader and formative assessment strategies that align with the modern educational landscape. Conclusively, this workshop is designed to equip educators with the knowledge and tools necessary to create a more engaging, responsive, and effective learning environment for their students.
