CCC | @ONE – Authentic Assessment in STEM Courses

Friday, March 22, 2024`11:00 am - 12:30 pm

How can we design classroom assignments that accurately assess learning and are flexible in times of emergency? Authentic assessment design minimizes confounding variables by allowing students to clearly demonstrate their learning. Students are encouraged to use their strengths and contextualize what they have learned. This helps remove barriers for assessing knowledge and is particularly helpful for marginalized student groups. Authentic assessments also provide flexibility in times of crisis because they are focused directly on learning outcomes. This in turn helps courses adapt to changing requirements and modalities. This workshop includes examples of authentic assessments and strategies for that participants can use to adapt their current assessments.
