Assessments & Activities

When building a course, the assessments and activities are as important as the content, since they are where students are going to engage strongly with the content and demonstrate that they’ve achieved learning outcomes. Recent concerns about AI and other forms of cheating—as well as enabling students to truly demonstrate learning—emphasize the need to use relevant activities and assessments when possible.
