This semester we are investigating the topic of assessment. We will concentrate on reading and discussing chapters from the fundamental text in the field, Classroom Assessment Techniques: A Handbook For College Teachers, 2d ed, by Thomas Angelo and K. Patricia Cross [SF: Jossey-Bass, 1993].
During our first meeting, we had a spirited discussion about chapters 1 and 3 of the text. The group wondered, what kinds of assessment are our colleagues using or have used? Please post your assessment techniques and tips using the feedback feature to share.
Recently I switched from using index cards for these assessments to having them online, but I found that far fewer students took the assessment when it was online than when they were given index cards. So I switched back to the cards. Michael, do you get a lot of responses with your online survey?
