Morning Mentor: How Can I Create Assessments to Effectively Measure Student Learning?

Assessment constitutes a critical aspect of the teaching and learning process; assessments offer both students and faculty feedback on students’ learning progress and achievement of competencies. However, designing learning-centered assessments can prove challenging. This program highlights attributes of effective assessments and outlines a process to create effective assessments using these attributes. Access 24/7 in your office, on your mobile device, or at home from 9/11 to 9/17.
