Using Formative Assessments to Increase Student Engagement and Understanding
Student understanding can be difficult to gauge, and the familiar "Does anyone have any questions?" query often goes unanswered in both traditional classrooms and online discussion boards; however, ensuring students have a good grasp of basic course concepts can facilitate more meaningful and engaging class activities and discussions. In addition to increasing student engagement, conducting formative assessments to measure understanding throughout the course can also allow you to clarify, explain, or elaborate on that content for students in real time when it is most meaningful to them.
Interested in learning more about using formative assessment for student engagement and understanding? Join us for a presentation, demonstration, and conversation about how online forms can be leveraged to create a loop of communication audits and encourage a deeper and more practical understanding of course material no matter what modality you are teaching in.
