In this module we will focus on the basic principles of student assessment. To set the stage, we introduce two online course evaluation tools:
- Quality Matters™ Rubric for Online and Hybrid Courses
- K-12 iNACOL National Standards for Quality Online Teaching
Both documents provide an overall robust set of standards for online courses and for instructor evaluation. They define what constitutes excellence in all facets of online course development and instructor best practice.
We will highlight what both documents have to say with respect to assessment practices in the online classroom. Along the way we will provide practical tips and strategies that can help both teachers and students find success.
