Assessing Student Online Learning During a Coronavirus Pandemic

ESA Water Cooler Chat #3

Now that you have made the switch to teach your courses online, the next thing on your mind are student assessments. How will assessing student learning differ from what you have done before? In what ways are your assessments the same? In what ways do your assessments reflect meaningful and inclusive pedagogical approaches?
