In early 2016, the Academic Affairs office at Wichita State instituted a new syllabus that requires classes have measurable student learning outcomes that are aligned with course assessments.
Whether a student requests an extension or has an ADA letter requesting more time to take a test, you are likely to find yourself needing to edit your test settings for an individual student at least once a term.
Self and Peer Assessment is very powerful but pretty tricky. If you plan to use it, watch this first.
Delegated Grading is particularly useful in large classes that utilize the Blackboard environment for assignment or test submission.
The test tool in Blackboard is a powerful thing. It can be used for “regular” tests, assignments, and even content delivery.
Wichita State relies on Blackboard Analytics for metadata, but if your course does not send “external grade” data to the system, the data for your course is not usable. Please review your grade book areas to make sure you have an external grade, and if you do not, please set an external grade today.
One of the perennial challenges that faculty face whether teaching online or face-to-face is providing timely and meaningful feedback to students on their assignments and exams.
How much do you hate assessment? Does the Bloom’s Taxonomy Wheel fill you with despair? What are your outcomes? Are they measurable?
