In this workshop, participants will learn how to use cognitive diagnostic modelling to better understand students’ needs and apply CDM to their own educational activities, particularly in terms of formative assessment.
Test scores often drive learning in a negative, demotivating manner. Furthermore, students with similar scores might have a very different set of strengths and points that need further attention. Cognitive diagnostic modelling (CDM) is an emergent psychometric paradigm that aims to extract more information about students’ misconceptions and knowledge gaps from test results, helping teachers and students prioritize remediation efforts. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to understand this novel approach and learn how to apply CDM to their own educational activities, particularly in terms of formative assessment.
