Developing Effective Assessments


Dr. Rick Moore, Assistant Director of Assessment and Evaluation

  • 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
  • via Zoom

Event Description

Assessing student learning is a critical component of effective teaching. Effective assessments provide both the student and the instructor with important feedback for determining if students are meeting the established learning goals. Assessments can be formative (lower stakes and ungraded) or summative (high stakes and graded). Participants in this workshop will discuss key principles of assessment design for both formative and summative assessments. Participants will also consider principles of effective design for specific kinds of assessments including multiple choice questions, group work, writing assignments, and oral presentations.
