  • 6. We’re Only Talking About Assessments, Right? • Exams can be the easiest place to do so, BUT • • • Papers/Essays Discussion Posts Labs/Assignments (MyMathLab, Aplia, etc) • So what should you do about it?
  • 7. Focus on Mastery, Not Performance… THEN Don’t Make It Easy • Make the content inviting, collaborative, and give some freedoms to learn rather than “regurgitate” • • • Give multiple attempts and average their attempts Use stories, examples, and specific items from class when creating questions Develop questions that require reading and interpretation, not just facts >> You’re the instructors, share your ideas!
  • 8. Those Common Mistakes I See • Giving WAY too much time on a quiz (rule is = your attempt time x 3) • Same questions for every student (randomize at least) • Not using question sets (even better randomization) • Content never changes over semesters (passing around past tests) • Easily “Googleable” questions (change the wording slightly) • Answer is in the question title (whoopsie!) • Give answers away while test is still available via feedback (oh no!)
  • 9. So What Do We Do? • Review your course using a fake student • Improve your course design • Meet with me and/or your peers • Form a cohort via the community?
