Assessment Design Café (CTE7529)

Friday, November 20, 2020 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm EST (GMT -05:00)

Location: Online

As you continue to plan your fall term, or look ahead to winter, 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 required (if this is your first time using GoSignMeUp, you will need to set up your account first). If you have changed roles at the University (e.g., graduate student to faculty) please updateyour "Participant Profile" in your GoSignMeUp account.


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.
