What You Need To Know About Assessing Your Students' Learning But Were Afraid To Ask
Wednesday, October 17, 2012    9:30 am - 11:30 am
Teaching Support Centre, Room 121, The D.B. Weldon Library

In this session we will discuss the fundamentals of assessment; topics that are necessary to address in order to create effective examinations and assignments. We will discuss why you assess, what your goals should be with a particular assessment, how your assessments should align with your objectives and teaching; all necessary questions to answer to effectively assess students' learning (and submit grades that you can be confident reflect that learning). We will also collect your questions about assessment and answer them.
