CANCELLED: How Do We Find Out What Students are Learning? Considerations for Classroom Assessment

April 7, 2020, 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Intended audience: 
Faculty, Instructors

This event has been cancelled due to guidance from public health officials and campus leadership re: COVID-19. For a consultation on this topic, please contact the Center for Teaching and Learning: We hope to see you back in the AIS soon.

Looking for new assignment ideas or wondering why students are getting stuck on the same concepts over and over again? In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore approaches to (and limitations of) assessment in undergraduate education, consider alternative methods (including students’ responses to them), and discuss strategies for using assessment activities to drive teaching and learning. We’ll also discuss distinctions between grading and assessment and explore ways that student ideas and misconceptions can influence teaching decisions.


Registration is unavailable. Registration closed on April 6, 2020 - 12:00pm.
