Assessment in Digital Learning (21SP-ADL-1)

February 1, 2021

Feb 1 – Feb 28, 2021
3.0 credits


Assessment is not just for testing anymore! This course explores the concept of assessment as a design tool that allows you to build a course centered around student learning. In this course, we’ll explore a design process called the assessment loop, looking at the ways clear learning outcomes, thoughtfully designed assessment, and analysis of assessment results can help you engage your students and build a better course. The course covers writing clear unit-level learning goals, aligning assessments to learning goals, developing authentic summative assessments and developing formative assessments that provide rich and meaningful feedback for students. In addition, we’ll explore various assignment options in Canvas, and develop an overarching plan for using assessments in digital learning environments.


To successfully complete this course, participants will:

  • Create assessments aligned to the OEI Course Design Rubric
  • Develop unit-level learning objectives in student-centered language with demonstrable learning outcomes;
  • Design a variety of valid and authentic formative and summative assessments aligned to the course objectives;
  • Design student self-assessments;
  • Write clear and detailed assessment instructions;
  • Create clear descriptive rubrics that support desired outcomes;
  • Develop an assessment plan for one unit of your course that supports regular assessment with timely, meaningful feedback.


This course is part of the Online Teaching & Design Certificate, and fulfills Section C: Assessment.
