In the next Virtual FLC (this Thursday, 4/16 at 10 a.m.), we will talk about how to authentically assess learning now that we’re all teaching virtually. Our guest, Ben Seipel from the School of Education, will share ideas about how we can do that online while remaining flexible and sensitive to students’ needs. Examples could include:
- Give exams that are open-book/open-note/open-internet that include high-level thinking questions that are not searchable online. Just be sure students know your expectations about academic integrity.
- Consider assessments that require students to solve a problem in the community, evaluate a situation and recommend a solution, analyze a case study, create something new like a concept map or e-portfolio, give a virtual presentation, or record a podcast with peers on a topic you assign.
