Q&A: Toward Better Assessments in Online Courses

Does anyone really know the definition of a “good” assessment? Does such a thing even exist? The second question has no clear answer (which means it’s not likely to show up on an assessment any time soon). As for the first, the jury’s probably still out, but Dianne Conrad and Jason Openo are closer than most. Openo serves as director of the Centre for Innovation and Teaching Excellence at Medicine Hat College in Alberta, Canada, and Dianne Conrad teaches in Athabasca University’s Center for Distance Education. Conrad has long wanted to write on this topic, and in early 2016 she convinced Openo, then a doctoral student with similar perspectives on assessment, to join her. The final product is Assessment Strategies for Online Learning (Athabasca University Press), which came out this summer.
