Workshop: Why and How to Assess Students Authentically

Sponsored by Faculty Development and Instructional Design and Learning Technologies


Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Time: 9:30 AM - 10:45 AM
Location: Lovejoy Library Room 0033b

Emily Keener and Wayne Nelson


Assessing what students know can be a much richer (and more engaging) experience than a simple formula of "read, test, repeat." In this workshop, we will talk about what it means to assess authentically, discuss some potential approaches, and redesign a few sample assessments to align more with "real life." 

Topics covered: 

* Key elements of "authentic" assessment

* Problem-based learning, projects, service and experiential learning

This workshop meets the Assessment requirement of LCT certification.
