Moving Beyond Exams

July 14, 2020 | July Workshop Series

Quizzes, exams, and other forms of "traditional assessments" are the standard for assessing student learning. But an assessment of student progress can be completed using other research-backed methods. In this webinar, we discussed how the use of alternative assessments can foster unique experiences, a conducive environment for academic growth, and supports the Flexible Hybrid model (a way in which a course can be delivered to both face-to-face and remotely.) Moving away from the traditional path may be daunting, but with different assessment techniques come additional benefits such as improving student learning and ensuring academic integrity.
