Course Design:
Creating Assessments

Welcome to the third micro-course of our Course Design series! We are thrilled you have decided to check out our short course on creating assessments. The Course Design series incorporates course design tutorials and resources combined with self-assessment and reflection exercises focused on key instructional topics. This experience is an opportunity to build upon or enhance higher education course design skills and to create multiple products.

This one-hour course contains video tutorials, sample assessments, and a playlist of resources on how to create diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments for your course.  Participants are encouraged to rethink when, why, and how they assess student learning.  At the end of this course, participants will need to pass the self-assessment to receive the digital badge of completion.  In addition to the digital badge, participants that complete all five courses in the Course Design series will receive a certificate of completion from the Studio for Teaching & Learning Innovation at William & Mary.

By the end of this course, instructors will be able to:
-Align assessments to learning objectives.
-Revise current assessments using feedback provided by colleagues.
-Use rubrics and checklists to better align learning objectives and assessments and to communicate success criteria to students.

We hope you find the learning activities and resources in this course valuable. The folks at STLI are here to help at any stage of your journey teaching at William & Mary!
