Determining Acceptable Evidence (Canvas Summer Road Trip Series)
From Adam Cohen
Today’s plan is to discuss some strategies for aligning assessments to course objectives. That is, how do we create an assessment that actually assesses what’s stated in the objective? How do we select the most appropriate assessment? What choices do we have? We will also identify some formative and summative assessments.
We will also determine the criteria for authentic assessment. First, what is authentic assessment? We’ll define it. Then, we’ll talk about what we need to make our assessments authentic.
Finally, we will look at Canvas and see how we might integrate an assessment and associated rubric using our Canvas tools.
Throughout the session, I will also be sharing links to resources that you might also be interested in exploring.
