CUT Assessing Student Learning (CTE4020)

Monday, February 13, 2023 8:30 am - Sunday, February 26, 2023 11:59 pm EST (GMT -05:00)

Location: Online (LEARN)

Facilitator: Kristin Brown (CTE)


We often think of assignments, tests, and exams as the only ways to assess students’ learning, but there are many different assessment methods to choose from. In this module, we’ll consider the principles of effective assessment. We’ll then explore diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments that can be applied in different disciplines.
