Remote Assessment 3: Simple-to-grade approaches

an E-CORE webinar

online - link will be distributed in registration confirmation email
August 27, 2020 @ 11:00am to 12:30pm PDT



The shift to remote education has presented instructors with many challenges, but the one likely causing the most headaches: assessments. Based on the tremendous response to the first E-CORE Assessment Webinar (link to recording), we are following up with more assessment sessions.

In this webinar, members from the ‘E-CORE Assessment Working group’ will present an overview of some approaches and strategies for simple-to-grade assessments. The session will present strategies for creating rich online assessments that test high level learning yet are simple to grade.  Also included will be tips and strategies for organizing and streamlining student, TA, and instructor workflow.  Participants will have ample opportunity to engage in small-group discussions, both to apply concepts and to receive feedback on their existing approaches and materials.

The workshop portion of the webinar will run for 1-hour, with an opportunity to stick around afterwards for Q & A with the facilitators and for continued informal discussions with other participants.

Please note: this session is not intended to be a comprehensive breakdown of remote assessment techniques, but instead provide a starting point for instructors when considering assessment options for their courses. We invite you to bring examples of assessment issues you are having and feedback on methods that you have used so far to share.  We hope to learn from each other and help connect colleagues working through similar issues.
