Implications for Assessment
What does this mean for assessment?
Knowing your students and teaching context is an essential step in selecting assessment tools and using appropriate assessment practices. The Resources section of this module includes a needs assessment to help you think about your own students’ characteristics and classroom needs and what these might mean for your assessment practices.
For now, here are some questions to keep in mind:
1. What types of learners do you have in your course? What are your students’ motivations and goals? What considerations must be made for assessment based on your student population?
2. What type of program are you working in? What considerations must be made for assessment based on your program type?
3. What additional considerations must be made for assessment based on your students and/or teaching context?
