Repertory Grids for Formative Assessment (RGFA)
In this paper, we present a short description of RGFA, a web-based software implementation of the Repertory Grid method. RGFA facilitates the study of the personal constructs of students for spatial diagnosis of their knowledge levels. Repertory Grid is a method for eliciting personal constructs of learners about elements belonging to the topic of study. Repertory Grid and RGFA are a pedagogical method and a computational tool respectively of the NEXT-TELL EU project (www.next-tell-eu) that is concerned with technology enhanced formative assessment and pedagogical decision-making. System description, use cases, and an illustrative screenshot of RGFA are presented. The paper concludes with an outline of future work on the research and development of RGFA.
