Shifting Learning Assessment to a Virtual Environment
The rapid shift to a hybrid or virtual educational environment has presented unique challenges to the learning assessment process. Faculty, many of whom have no formal training in these new modalities, are searching for new ways to observe students from afar and assess learning without relying solely on tests. They are also attempting to engage students creatively in both individual and team-based assessments. Academic leaders are grappling with continued community engagement in the assessment process, while also looking for ways to make up for lost assessments during the spring 2020 semester. In this session, we’ll review practical solutions to each of these challenges, sharing examples from fellow institutions, as well as specific ways that the Anthology platform is positioned to support member campuses, in this unique educational environment.
