This workshop is designed to help participants choose and use a variety of tools and techniques for assessing student learning in STEM courses that can help us better understand our students’ performance in the classroom, and also contribute to assessment needed for specialized accreditation such as ABET or NAAB. We will discuss important concepts underpinning successful classroom assessment of student learning, describe a variety of tools and techniques for STEM courses, and note connections to helpful literature. During the session each participant will have an opportunity to select several potential new assessment tools or techniques for their own course, and plan for potential initial implementation for one or two of those tools and techniques.

This webinar addresses how performance criteria can be used to help learning objectives (which can sometimes seem static and impersonal in nature) come alive in the classroom. Performance criteria are the expectations given to learners before a performance that define the characteristics which make up a high quality performance related to achieving a learning objective. Participants attending this webinar will be able to articulate the value of writing and using performance criteria, practice using a methodology for writing performance criteria, and assess performance criteria to improve quality.

Peer coaching is a form of feeback that uses other faculty/staff to collect and provide assessment about areas you have targeted in your teaching. Benefits of this type of collaboration include: obtaining valuable feedback on your classroom performance, introducing others to new educational practices, modeling the value of assessment to the learners in the classroom, and quick propagation of ‘best practices’ within a community of educators. In this workshop, participants will learn about the principles behind peer coaching, tips on implementation, and get to see the process for producing and reporting peer coaching feedback.

One of the biggest challenges we face is how to turn the grading process for our students into a constructive learning experience. This workshop will focus on how to generate effective feedback that is frequent, timely, based on clear criteria, encouraging, and targeted. During the workshop, we will explore some of the research about what makes feedback effective. Also, Dr. Mir Atiqullah will share an effective methodology for how he helps his students take the next step from their current level to the next achievable level of performance. Participants will leave with a plan to enhance the feedback we provide to our students.
