Assessing Students Without Proctored Exams
The shift to online instruction has encouraged faculty to reconsider how they assess student learning. In this conversation, Sharon Irving of Nursing and Rob Ghrist of Math will explore how they have found alternatives for assessing students outside proctored exams. This includes considering how to incorporate more frequent low-stakes quizzes, different types of in- and out-of-class assessments, as well as ways to account for academic integrity. The discussion will focus on ways to maintain a rigorous Penn education and ensure that assessments reflect what students have learned in their online classes.
