Classroom Assessment Explorer

Use this tool to explore ways to assess different types of learning. Get started by clicking on the blue box with the question, "What kind of learning would you like to assess?"

This project is a combined effort between Michele Larson and Sydney Brown. Larson improved and expanded the database of techniques and Brown did the JavaScript coding. Many of these techniques are described in detail in Angelo and Cross (1993). If you are a UNL instructor and would like assistance implementing any of these techniques in your class, please contact an instructional designer assigned to your college.
