Description
For STEM and other technical subjects, our assessments often have a very similar result from every student (at least when they solve the problems correctly). When we were able to give proctored in-person assessments, we provided some reasonable oversight that each student was performing their own work. Last March, when the whole education system moved online, everything got harder.

While we can assess with digital proctored systems, there are drawbacks: the costs are high, there are valid concerns about student privacy, and the exam design for proctored online tests is not ideal for the complex concepts we need to assess. We've been needing a redesign of assessment in STEM for a while, and the events of 2020 have made that more evident. In this interactive workshop we will focus on creating a balanced, fair, authentic, and transparent assessment strategy for STEM courses.
