Assessment in Digital Learning (21SP-ADL-3)

May 24 - Jun 20, 2021
3.0 credits

Description

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.

Outcomes

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.

Fulfills

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

Duration: 4 Weeks, facilitated asynchronous

Time Commitment: approximately 10 hours per week, for a total of 40 hours

Level of Difficulty: Intermediate. To get the most from this course, you should have some familiarity with online teaching and with Canvas. For those who have never taught online, it is highly recommended you take Introduction to Course Design and Introduction to Canvas before beginning this course.

Optional Continuing Education Credit

Participants in this course can seek optional professional development/continuing education credits by dual-enrolling.  A separate fee to the university for graduate-level credit will apply.  To learn more, visit Course & CEU Information

Description

Whether you're building your first online course or revising an existing one, this 12-week facilitated asynchronous series will show you how to create the course you've always dreamed of teaching. You'll explore online learning theory, approaches to online course design, and strategies for supporting student success from within the structure of the four sections of the Online Education Initiative's Course Design Rubric:

  1. Course Design
  2. Interaction
  3. Assessment
  4. Accessibility

The learn-by-doing focus will have you building a powerful sample course in Canvas Sandbox, which you can then use as your own personal course creation blueprint. Fast-paced and innovative, this course is perfect for instructors new to Canvas and/or new to online teaching, while also providing innovative ideas for enhancing existing courses.

Outcomes

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • develop a comprehensive course plan for a fully online or hybrid course
  • use the core features of the Canvas course managements system to design an online or hybrid course
  • develop an introductory orientation module
  • develop a learning unit with clear objectives aligned to the course outcomes
  • design accessible course content
  • integrate Open Educational Resources and other material curated from the internet to support student learning
  • design formative and summative assessments to support and measure student learning
  • use a variety of communication tools, both within and external to Canvas, to support student success

Fulfills

Successful completion of this course leads to an Online Teaching & Design Certificate. Completion of this course is equivalent to completing Introduction to Course Design, 10-10-10: Communication that Matters, Assessment in Digital Learning, Creating Accessible Course Content, and the Course Design Capstone.

Duration: 12 weeks

Time Commitment: approximately 10 hours per week, for a total of 120 hours

How do you know if your online students are learning when you can’t see them? The short answer is: meaningful assessment.

While many people link assessments to grades, the real power of assessing our students is the insight we can get from the results. When we examine our students’ performance, we can identify what they’ve mastered and where they may still need help. Section C of the OEI Course Design Rubric provides a framework to help you design an assessment process that supports teaching and learning through thoughtful formative and summative assessments and rich feedback.

After registration, you will receive a Zoom link via email.
