Alternative Assessment Techniques for Blended and Online Courses
Litchfield, Brenda C.; Dempsey, John V.
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on e-Learning (Prague, Czech Republic, Jul 23-26, 2013)
Alternative assessment techniques are essential for increasing student learning in blended and online courses. Rather than simply answer multiple-choice questions, students can choose activities in an academic contract. By using a contract, students will be active participants in their own learning. Contracts add a dimension of authenticity to blended and online course and students can learn, retain, and transfer more of course content. Guidelines and an example of a contract are given.
