Alternatives to High Stakes Assessments

Facilitator: Gregory Campbell, CETLI Graduate Fellow, Mechanical Engineering & Applied Mechanics & Miranda Sklaroff, CETLI Graduate Fellow, Political Science

Why are exams, long final papers, and extensive projects the norm in higher education? How do we create assignments that build the same skills and knowledge in a less stressful way? And why should we do this? Join us for a cross-disciplinary talk about lower stakes assignments either as scaffolding for larger assessments or in lieu of high-stakes tests and papers. This workshop focuses on thinking through workable alternatives and considering why we assess students in particular ways and not others. Attendees will leave with resources and tools for creating their own assignments and course structure.
