MetaLogic's assessment tools and custom solutions are available and customizable as interactive learning tools for use in higher education courses or for professional development workshops. An example of each is highlighted below.
Example in Higher Education
Several professors use MetaCat's customizable item authoring and review tools in their classes of pre-service teachers. A class assignment using the tool is to create several constructed response questions and scoring criteria, aligned to the Common Core Standards. The students share and discuss their draft items online. They can then revise and resubmit their test questions with scoring rubrics to the instructor, who can then review and provide feedback online.
Customized Item Development Template
Students found the course, and using the MetaCat Assessment Tools, very valuable. Of course, success was achieved because of a smart, highly-innovative and experienced professor who understood the value of the tools and how to use them to engage the students. Read student feedback.
Example in Professional Development
The State Department of Education in Mississippi offers their health teachers professional development workshops in health literacy. They use the HEAPHealthLiteracy.com
HEAP of Books resources, created by health literacy experts, as models. Workshop participants use the Book Resource Development Tool to create and review resources for books available in their schools. Completed book resources are reviewed and then made available to other classroom teachers.
