This workshop will build upon our discussion of backward course design and alignment to design assessments that are appropriate to achieve the learning goals in your classroom. We will examine formative v. summative and academic v. authentic assessment types and discuss when to use each. Attendees will work together to come up with examples of assessments that are appropriate for their learning objectives, with a focus on the long-term goals for student learning in the course. We will also discuss the design of fair assessments that accurately measure learning outcomes for the diverse variety of students in our classroom.
