Effective assessment, meaningful feedback and a clear grading policy are fundamental to the success of any online course. They are also some of the most challenging things to get right.

In this workshop, you will look at some essential considerations in assessment, feedback and grading and examples of good practice from MOOCs and SPOCs at PolyU. You’ll also explore the new edX revenue model and what it means for your course.

By the end of the workshop, you'll be able to:

  • use appropriate tools to design effective assessment tasks for your course
  • ensure participants receive meaningful feedback on their learning
  • establish a grading policy to suit the needs of your course
