Teaching and Learning Community of Practice Sharing Series

Assessment Strategies for Online Teaching


Description

The continuation of online teaching urges the need for redesigning the assessment method. Experience sharing by our fellow teachers may give you some inspirations on how to do this for the best results. In this webinar, four speakers from different disciplines and universities will share their practice in administering various designs of online assessments:


Non-Proctored Online Assessment – Settings and Considerations by Dr. Donald CHAN, Department of Chemistry, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Hands-On Experience in Coordinating Proctored Online Exam by Dr. Josephine LAU, School of Biomedical Science, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Josephine has solid experience in coordinating proctored online exam for large classes (280 medical students). As the convenor of the task force on online exam in School of Biomedical Sciences, she is going to share hands-on experience and the good practices for running online Blackboard remote invigilated exam with 2-camera setup, i.e. Blackboard + Lockdown Browser with Monitor and Zoom.

Alternative Assessment Strategies to Promote Collaborative and Self-Regulated Learning in Group Activities by Dr. Winnie LAM, Department of Mathematics and Information Technology, The Education University of Hong Kong

Many courses include group activities with collaborations among students. However, it is difficult to assess individual effort in the group objectively especially in online mode. In a TDG project, Winnie proposed to use a Moodle-based learning platform called GMoodle that allows students to conduct different activities such as discussions, resources sharing and draft of report on a single platform. Live progress reports helped to promote active engagement among students and provide effective teaching strategy for progress tracking and assessment. Besides, teachers should adjust the assessment strategies (e.g. take-home examination, e-Portfolio and virtual tour) to accommodate the change of study mode.


Adapting a Student-Centred Learning Approach and Designing the Associated Assessments in an Accounting Subject by Dr. Bruce LI, School of Accounting and Finance, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University


Due to the rapid and unpredictable change of the pandemic, the teaching and learning of education institutions are unavoidably affected. The assessment methods and procedures must be re-designed to become online. Changing the assessment types from a purely summative assessment to a mix of summative and formative assessments can allow students to engage more within the subject and allow teachers to monitor students’ learning progress effectively. Bruce will present how a student-centred learning approach is being implemented within an accounting subject.


An open floor discussion will be arranged at the end of the webinar for our speakers to interact with audience after the sharing.
