Online assessment and, more broadly, the entire online learning environment provides expanded opportunities to actively and creatively engage the learner. The approach the authors have taken in this book is to work from the established fundamentals of assessment, applying these principles to the online environment. The authors emphasize basic issues of assessment such as establishing the evidence of validity for assessments, but the context of the discussion is always that of an online environment. Written by leading technology experts, this clear and practical text serves as a training guide for assessing online or distance learners. Readers learn how to select what should be assessed, how to use written tests and projects to evaluate the skills learners have achieved, how to provide feedback to learners, and how to efficiently use course management software. The authors believe educators involved with online training and education must have the same assessment expectations and standards as those in conventional, face-to-face environments.
This book is appropriate for instructional designers and educators involved with online training and education as well as for college courses concerned with the design and delivery of distance or other forms of online instruction. It also has utility as a personal reference for instructors of courses that assess students online.
