Implementing assessment instruments for group work that supports student learning and provide valid and reliable results based on individual efforts, can be challenging. Within an online environment, the challenge is even more complex. Implementing electronic posters within cooperative learning elements has been proven to be an effective instrument for scaffolding collaborative assessment that enhances self-directed learning skills development during virtual excursions. Furthermore, using electronic posters as multimodal assessment instruments contributes to students taking ownership of their learning, hence developing student agency. However, for electronic posters to be successful in promoting self-directed learning skills, as well as student agency, explicit and holistic planning, and implementation are not negotiable. Rooted in social constructivism and social interdependence theory, and drawing from qualitative data, this presentation presents guidelines for the success of electronic posters as a multimodal and self-directed assessment instrument.
