OVERVIEW: The shift to remote education has presented instructors with many challenges, but the one likely causing the most headaches: assessments. From the initial E-CORE survey, participants indicated that they would like to discuss remote assessment with other educators. Areas of particular concern are academic integrity and logistics for remote assessment.
In this webinar, members from the ‘E-CORE Assessment Working group’ will present an overview from some of the best practices Quick Guides (available from the E-CORE Resource page), in addition to some examples for how these assessment techniques can be applied in a variety of class contexts. The workshop portion of the webinar will run for 1-hour, with an opportunity to stick around afterwards for Q & A with the facilitators.
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. E-CORE hopes to offer more assessment-related webinars in the near future based on demand and facilitator availability. 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.
