Nursing: Summative assessment – alignment with formative class and online assessment

Lecturers Delphine Sih and Jennifer Cornelissen makes use of the iKamva platform to support 46, Health, Development and Primary Health Care[HDP116] – Nursing students.


Formative and summative assessments were designed and developed, making use of eAssessment tools within iKamva.


Formative Assessment space:

Students were expected to complete an individual assignment. This assignment was developed and placed within iKamva, with clear instructions and expectations. In addition, a rubric was developed to guide student writing and improve the quality, focus and attention of the assignment. The rubric included the structure/outline of the assignment, as well as the mark allocation for each section.


Furthermore, the lecturer and students also engaged in other formative assessments such as class presentations, a class test and a group assignment.


Summative Assessment space:

The final examination was designed within the iKamva platform through the use of various question types. The exam was divided into four (4) sections and included, Matching and Short Answer/Essay type questions. Students were expected to list, describe, define and explain variousconcepts and models linked to the discipline; consisting of different mark allocations.


**Prior to the online exam, the lecturer also shared past question papers to assist students with preparation and revision.
