Assessing online learning: strategies, challenges and lessons learned

Alex Blair outlined how two years ago, through his Faculty Partnership Program (FPP) project, he moved from face-to-face to online assessment.  Economics as a discipline traditionally prefers paper based exams. Alex experienced trepidation initially and wondered how assessment integrity could be maintained. With a little creativity, flexibility and help from the FPP, Alex addressed these concerns successfully by:

  • modeling assignments using animated presentations slides

  • conducting an early ‘practice test’

  • final open book exam

Faculty Partnership Program Applications open on April 21 – Closes May 23.
