Two Takes on Assessment

I have been thinking a lot recently about assessment. First, I’ve been thinking about it because, you know, it’s a lot of what we do as teachers–we try to figure out what students are learning and what they are struggling with. Second, I was part of Nick Roster’s Hacking Assessment Learning Community last year and working with that interesting group of colleagues really got me thinking about grading in a new way. Finally, the idea of teaching all livestream this semester means that I–and many of us–are going to have to do things differently. And that includes assessing students differently.

If you, too, are thinking about assessment, here are two recent articles that I found interesting. Check them out!
