This is a practice-oriented course, which will provide you with resources you can use in your courses. You will work on real assessment, design, review and improve them. You will learn, or refresh your learning of a wide range of factors coming into play when designing effective assessments and will be pushed to think more creatively about assessment and to review your own assessment practices.
Don’t miss this chance to improve your assessment skills.
Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:
- to recognize the purposes and characteristics of formative and summative assessment, their link to the intended learning outcomes and the role of feedback in each of these assessment types;
- to critically evaluate different assessment formats in terms of learners, format, channel, duration, frequency and feasibility;
- to design summative or formative assessments for a specific group of target learners using the most appropriate assessment format.
This course targets, in particular, all EIT Food educators, both experienced and new to course designing, but it is open also to educators of other KICs. The learning can be applied to courses of any kind, short or long, in professional education or higher education, courses for children or courses for experienced professionals, as well as students. This course is therefore aimed at any educator who wants to learn how to design and use assessment effectively in any of their courses or who is experienced and would like a refresher.
