Lisa Coulson (HEFi) discusses the Assessment Support Hub.
The upcoming Assessment Support Week begins on 13th December. The Assessment Support Hub for staff aims to support you to run activities for your students within, or on the run up to, the week. It contains templates, ‘how to’ guides and workshop outlines that are easy to adapt to your context to make your planning and preparation as quick and easy as possible. The resources can be accessed through Canvas.
Within the Hub you will also be able to sign up for the following HEFi support sessions:
Building Online Assessments / Exams
This session will cover how to build online assessments using Canvas assignments, and using canvas quizzes for exams (both classic and new). This session will also include strategies to promote academic integrity, incorporating reasonable adjustment plans, using Turnitin for plagiarism detection and the migration of questions from classic to new quizzes.
Creating Rubrics / Grading Schemes for Online Assessments and Exams
This workshop will cover how to create a rubric and marking scheme with canvas assignments and canvas quizzes, to aid in a shared understanding amongst markers on how to apply the performance criteria in the grade descriptors to students work. The use of rubrics can ensure that marking decisions align with the learning objectives and help to make the marking decision transparent and reliable for students.
