Event Description

Assessment: More than a final exam

Accurately assessing what students have learned in your course requires careful thought and being intentional in what assessment approach you choose. A good assessment plan can ensure consistent methods are undertaken, and that the results provide meaningful information to both students and the instructor. In this workshop, you will develop a course assessment plan, including both formative and summative assessment, that aligns with your intended course learning outcomes, goals or objectives. We’ll explore the value of providing students both summative and formative assessment, as well as the importance of providing regular, timely and meaningful feedback. We¹ll also discuss how breaking down or scaffolding large assessments can reduce student anxiety and produce better student products. During the workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to consider how assessment is related to learning, compare the advantages and disadvantages of common assessment practices, and consider whether promise practices and emerging innovations in assessment might address some of their assessment challenges. Finally, we’ll explore tools and resources to help make you assessment practices more efficient, provide targeted feedback to students and better support student learning. Please bring your course outcomes, as you’ll work with a subset of your outcomes to develop your course assessment plan.

Facilitators: Manuel Dias, Jared Stang and Candice Rideout.
