Create assessments that promote learning for all students
Assessments inform us of student understanding and allow us to measure the achievement of course aims. In addition, assessments function as a critical component in course design and can serve as learning tools. In this resource we draw upon evidence-based practices to create a comprehensive collection of strategies for designing, administering, and grading assessments, while keeping in mind ways to support a diverse population of learners.
This resource offers concrete suggestions for instructors, examples of applications of strategies by UMN instructors, and links to additional resources and references. The content and approaches address different teaching formats so as to be useful whether you teach online, face-to-face, or in a hybrid format
