Designing Digital Formative Assessments

Formative assessment strategies are helpful during the learning and instructional process, providing feedback to both instructor and students that allows for adjustment of ongoing teaching and learning practices. Assessment in online learning contexts often differs from assessment in face-to-face contexts, mainly due to the asynchronous nature of student and instructor interactions. 

This 90-minute interactive workshop will provide an overview of formative assessment strategies for online and blended learning environments. It will include demos of quiz, survey, and polling tools (specifically Google Forms, Qualtrics, and Lessons questions and the Tests & Quizzes tool in NYU Classes) and strategies that support formative assessment. Participants will have an opportunity to engage in discussion of formative assessments and related strategies as they apply to their own courses in a 30-minute Q&A immediately following the workshop.
