Adapting Assessments for Online and Remote Teaching

Resources for Adapting Assessments

For many classes, assessment strategies may need to be shifted suddenly to unproctored, open-book online exams.  Students can still learn, and sometimes can even learn more when testing is done this way.  If you usually use proctored exams, you do not have to turn them into quizzes.  Unproctored online exams can be effective, they just will take students longer to complete.

Peer Grading of Homework in Large Undergraduate Engineering Courses

The attached paper is “Peer-graded individualized student homework in a single-instructor undergraduate engineering course.”

From the author: “If you are switching a large engineering course online with a tight human budget, this might be a useful tool: it allows students to work on meaningful, regular assignments while keeping the instructor load relatively low.”

Remote Learning Tool Kits, Tips, and Templates

The following are resources for Online and Remote Instruction:

  • A Tool Kit for Online Instructors – taken from Stanford’s Tomorrow’s Professor Listserv, the file provides a series of practical guidelines, and perhaps most importantly an inventory of activities, that can help you in the next two weeks as your courses are reconfigured.
  • Tips for Moving to Online and Remote Teaching on Short Notice – from Dr. Beth Brunk-Chavez of the UT System Academy of Distinguished Teachers (UTEP), this set of tips and best practices is specifically designed for instructors who are adapting to the move online with little advance notice.
  • Online Learning Readiness Survey Template – you might come up with terrific online materials and resources, but students won’t learn if they can’t access them or don’t understand how to use them. Remember that not all students have wifi access at home (some are even homeless) or have the technological sophistication to master some approaches. This file is a sample survey from Karen that you could revise and send to students in your classes via Qualtrics or other mechanisms.
