An initiative from the Thomas A. Edge Archives, asking for the AU community’s help to create an archive of our individual and shared experiences during the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We want to encourage all AU students, staff, and alumni, and the residents of the Town and County of Athabasca, to share your story with us. For more information see the article in The Hub about it: COVID-19 Memory Archive Project.
Assessment Strategies for Online Learning
by Dianne Conrad and Jason Openo
For many learners assessment conjures up visions of red pens scrawling percentages in the top right-hand corner of exams and feelings of stress, inadequacy, and failure. Although negative student reactions to evaluation have been noted, assessment has provided educational institutions with important information about learning outcomes and the quality of education for many decades. But how accurate is this data and has it informed practice or been fully incorporated into the learning cycle? Conrad and Open argue that the potential in many of the new learning environments to alter and improve assesment has yet to be explored by educators and students.
