Online Assessment & Grading

Online Assessments

In online teaching, your role as instructor often shifts toward guide and mentor. By using online assessments, you have the opportunity to use a test as a teaching tool, rather than purely as an evaluation mechanism. In contrast to a traditional face-to-face setting, different techniques and criteria must be used in assessing students’ progress and outcomes in an online course. Online learning is inherently more student-centered, and other forms of assessment can be much more appropriate and accurate in measuring to what degree the learners accomplished the instructional objectives.

Pedagogy MUST drive content delivery choices ….not the tool. 
You are encouraged to look at the pages and examples below before you explore the tools, but these links are provided for your convenience once you are ready to design and develop.
