Supporting assessment in Semester 2
AUT has made the decision that all teaching and learning activities will remain online for the duration of Semester 2, regardless of changes in the COVID-19 Alert Level. This decision includes no in-person assessments or in-person exams for Semester 2 courses.
altLAB is here to support Faculties and their staff with online teaching and assessments.
Professional learning events
2020 was a bootcamp in standing up alternative assessments appropriate for online delivery. This panel brings together examples from across a range of disciplines to explore alternative models, but with a view to lessons learned. Specifically, the panel will address three assessment types that can be challenging: 1) online exams, 2) non text based (visual, symbol, numerical) and 3) presentation based. Colleagues will have an opportunity to explore a number of front of mind questions and where possible we’ll have ‘real time answers’.
Session title: Rethinking summative assessments: Perspectives from practice Robin Hankin, Anna Jackson, Patricia Lucas and Ginz Xu
