The pandemic brought about many challenges to effective teaching. Chief among them may be assessment.
Many faculty members have had to rethink how they evaluate student learning, from assignments to tests to grading.
Should they stick to midterms and finals or switch to more frequent, lower-stakes quizzes? If they are online, should they consider using proctoring software to reduce cheating? Are there better ways to evaluate student learning beyond tests and papers? All of those smaller questions are often wrapped up in a larger one: What do they want students to learn and remember? And how can they tell?
Our panel of experts will discuss these questions and more during the third session of our Talking About Teaching series on March 25 at 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET. Register now to view this conversation on-demand.
