Although very similar to online assessments, the differences in in-class exams are important to consider.
- [Instructor] The most common learning assessment used…is the written exam.…Whether these are short answer, multiple choice,…or some other variation, they all need to be designed…for the most effective outcome.…As with any format, the first thing to consider…is whether the exam is to be formative or summative.…With that major decision in place,…the rest of the design is heavily guided…by the content and the environment.…For example, a Biology course…is not likely to require essays.…Multiple choice might work better.…
A History course's exam might provide more feedback…for both the instructor and student if it were short essay…instead of multiple choice.…Remember that any format can be effective…as long as the goal is clear.…Is it meant to be a final evaluation…or as a learning step for the student?…
