Our Students Say. . .

"Going through each piece for the final project has given me the opportunity to see how much I have changed from formal, traditional assessments to much more authentic learning activities and hands-on assessments. I have learned how to remove the lower level thinking activities and bring in the higher level thinking activities. I am much happier with my course design as I make these changes to my own thinking and processing.”
~Tracy Fleck

 

"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
