As you prepare for the fall term, you might be wondering how you are going to assess your students. Perhaps you are teaching a course for the first time or you want to adjust existing assessments. Join us at our virtual café to spend time working on one of your assessments. We’ll start the session with a guided discussion about your anticipated challenges with assessment for the fall term. We’ll continue with some best practices around assessment design and then CTE staff will be available to answer your questions while you work on your assessment.

This workshop will be held in Microsoft Teams. Prior to the workshop, you will receive an invite to a Teams meeting via email.


Registration is required. CTE has a new registration system called GoSignMeUp. Before you can register for a workshop, you need to create an account (one time only). Once you've created an account, you can register for this workshop.


Many of our workshops have waiting lists, so if you've registered but can't attend, please cancel your registration well in advance through the registration system, so that someone else can fill your spot.
