LDJIT: Learning Design Just-in-Time

Online Assessment

Online Assessments

This module provides detail to help instructors implement assessment strategies in the online classroom. Assessments are useful in determining a student's comprehension and mastery of skills and content, but they do not always need to be formatted as a formal exam. There are many ways we can assess students to determine if they are learning, and we can do so in a way that is both authentic and valid (Fisher & Bandy, 2019). 

When creating online assessments, we traditionally consider three categories: formative assessments, summative assessments, and assessments with both formative and summative characteristics. Assessments can be customized to fit your course content and developed in a way to highlight the material you are covering. At the same time, they should also ensure that what you want to observe is what is actually being measured. The online classroom contains useful tools that can be used to develop assessments in creative ways.
