DeBarger, A. H., Yumoto, F., & Quellmalz, E. (2005, April). GLOBE: Using PADI templates as an alternative structure for specifying GLOBE investigation strategies. Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association, Montreal, Canada.
The Principled Assessment Designs for Inquiry (PADI) design system employs evidence-centered design (Messick, 1994; Mislevy, Steinberg, and Almond, 2003) as the foundation for guiding assessment development. As a use-case for the PADI design system, classroom assessment resources developed for the Global Learning to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) program were reverse-engineered or translated into PADI design system components. Multiple design patterns and a task template were developed to shape assessments of the inquiry skills addressed in GLOBE. This paper briefly describes the process by which the GLOBE task template was reverse-engineered from the extant design and samples for assessing the GLOBE earth science concepts and investigation strategies.
