2017: Getting it right: guidelines for online assessment

Presenters: David Snell and Jane Terrell (Massey University, New Zealand)

This session explores findings and tools developed for an Ako Aotearoa project on developing guidelines for assessment in higher education as well as an online tool that provides guidance to teachers in deploying online assessment tools.

Effective online assessment can offer a range of benefits to both students and teachers and getting it right is critical in supporting students' learning and ensuring their retention and success. Two resources; the Guidelines for Online Assessment and Online Assessment Tool Selector (OATS) have been developed as a way to help teachers to review and redevelop their online assessment practices using a range of tools and in contexts that NZ tertiary teachers will be familiar with. Drawn from the New Zealand context, the guidelines are designed to either stand alone, or to be used in conjunction with the web-based OATS, available at http://oats.net.nz.

The session will discuss the development and use of both tools which were part of a multi-institutional Ako Aotearoa project in 2016.
