Designing Aligned Assessments
As part of the Georgia Tech Remote Teaching Academy for faculty, members of the Center for Teaching and Learning faculty created a variety of short videos on key topics related to remote teaching. All of the videos can be found on the Remote Teaching Academy Canvas site. We will highlight the videos in this series of posts over the next few weeks as well. Visit the CTL Keep Teaching site for extensive resources for teaching remotely. CTL faculty are also available to talk, answer questions, and think through pedagogical approaches with you. Request a chat here.
After using the backwards design process to think of your course as a set of learning activities that help your students achieve the learning objectives you set of them, you can then use those learning objectives to design assessments that allow students to demonstrate their progress in meeting your objectives. In this video, Dr. Carol Subino Sullivan, Assistant Director for Faculty Teaching and Learning Initiatives in CTL, share a few rules of thumb for creating aligned assessments.
