In this micro-course, participants will:

  • Discuss best practices to develop a variety of meaningful alternative assessments (i.e., low/high stakes, formative, summative and etc.).
  • Explore assessment strategies for maintaining academic integrity while conducting assessments online.
  • Reflect and share alternative assessment methods they plan to use in online classes.
