Gearing Up for Fall 2020

As we prepare to offer the majority of classes online for the Fall 2020 semester, Technologies in Education has prepared some guides to help you prepare for online delivery.

Assessment Options for Fall 2020

A major challenge for instructors for the Fall 2020 semester is choosing the best method for assessing your students in an online environment. To assist in planning your assessments for remote delivery, we have created a guide on assessment best practices, found here

The challenge: How do I adapt to online delivery of assessments?

We recognize that there are many factors that influence the choices you make for assessment. We also recognize that the requirement to move your assessments online may raise many concerns and questions. We're interested in hearing from everyone who has made this transition. We want to understand what your priorities were, how you planned to meet them, and the recommendations you would have for others.


Assessment Options

The University of Alberta has announced that no final exams will be conducted in-person for the Winter 2020 semester. As a result of this, the Learning Assessment Centre has announced that they will no longer be able to accommodate your LAC final exam bookings and that all bookings for the remainder of the semester will be cancelled. With this information, it is important to consider alternatives to your final assessments.

How to Evaluate without a Traditional Exam

The answer to this question is going to vary from course to course and there are many different ways instructors might assess their students without a traditional exam. Luckily, the Centre for Teaching and Learning has created a guide to help instructors explore different alternative assessment options.
