Our Students Say. . .

""I found this class to be immensely gratifying, and I can honestly say that my mind is full with new ideas, new concepts and new ways to assess students that I either shrugged off as ‘it will never work’ or simply didn't think to consider. I think the most surprising of these was the blog and the use for self-reflection. I’ve always valued self-assessments but I kept them very short and simple with my students, never really utilizing it to its full potential.

I plan to make extensive revisions to the shorter assessments that the students currently use and will transition that into an online weekly journal of goals and reflection on personal progress.”
 ~ Kristina Vines, Technical College Instructor/Program Chairperson Surgical Technology


"This class has 'pushed' me out of my comfort zone and forced me to try new assessment tools, and I’ve learned a lot about how assessment works in the online environment. "
~ Adina Ness, Dental Hygienist


"Thanks for bringing so many new tools within reach and facilitating the proper applications/assessments in online learning. It is imperative, for authentic learning to take place, for the tool to provide a means for accurate assessment of the objective. All of my colleagues in this class so diligently contributed their expertise to the discussions, so that I might increase my expertise."
~ Traci Skog, Library Assistant


"This course taught me the advantages and disadvantages of many assessment tools that can be used in my future online courses.
~ Dora Szemborski, College Accounting Instructor
