Assessment 101

Whether an introduction to you or simply a reminder, the content in this “Assessment 101” section is meant to provide a very brief summary of good practice in assessment.  This is the foundation upon which the rest of this site is built.  It is divided into three sections:

1. Assessment basics

A quick summary of the multiple roles assessment plays in education, how it is used by teacher and by student, and some of the key properties of effective assessment.

2. Five assessment best practices

The assessment basics content translated into five key “best practices,” supported from the literature.

3. Online assessment basics

A brief summary of additional important considerations when employing online assessment.
