Multimodal Learning and Assessment in 1:1 Classrooms (MuLVu)

The MuLVu project investigates how pupils in lower secondary education (age group 13-15) compose multimodal texts, and how teachers assess these texts in one-to-one classrooms.

About the project

The main purpose of MuLVu is to strengthen teachers' formative assessment practices of multimodal texts. Multimodal texts are diverse in content as they often combine elements such as sound, pictures, text and animation. The digital density in one-to-one classrooms contribute to this development. As a result, teachers need to review and renew their assessment practices. 

The MuLVu project aims to assist teachers in their development of new assessment and feedback practices on multimodal composing and texts. 

During the initial stages of MuLVu, the researchers will study the teaching and assessment culture at three schools in Bærum. Based on the knowledge acquired in this initial stage researchers will develop models of good assessment practice. These models will later be distributed through a web resource made available by the Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training. 

Financing

FINNUT (research and innovation in the education sector) and Bærum municipality finances the projects. FINNUT innovation contributes 6,9 million kr and Bærum contributes 4,3 million kr. FINNUT is a part of the Norwegian research council.                                                     

Cooperation

MuLVu is a collaborative project between the University of Oslo (UiO) and Bærum municipality.                         

Reference group

The reference group consists of national and international experts with academic experience of technology and formative assessment. Representatives from Bærum municipality and UiO are also members of the group. The project's reference group will contribute advice and critical perspectives to aid the research development.
