Abstract

The introduction of the new Informatics curriculum in the Netherlands in 2019 raises the need for new teaching material that includes practical assignments and guidelines for their assessment. As a part of our research project on teaching Computational Science (modeling and simulation), we participate in these efforts and developed a curriculum intervention and an assessment instrument consisting of a practical assignment and grading rubrics to assess student’s level of understanding. The rubrics we developed can be used both for formative and summative assessment. In this paper we describe the design of this assessment instrument and indicate further research directions focusing on validation of this instrument.
