Measuring student achievement of course outcomes through a variety of assessments accommodates diverse learners, promotes critical thinking and encourages academic honesty (and helps meet QM Standard 3.4).
In traditional assessments, such as quizzes and tests, students select responses from the options provided and usually receive automated scores. In alternative assessments, students demonstrate proficiency though hands-on application of course concepts, and grading criteria is provided.
As an Instructional Designer at Macomb Community College, I design, develop and facilitate online and on-ground workshops including online faculty certification and Canvas certification. I also support faculty in repurposing courses from an on-ground to an online learning environment, recommend course improvement ideas, and support faculty in using technology to facilitate learning. I obtained an Ed.S. and M.Ed. in Instructional Technology from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan and a B.A. in Education from the University of Michigan in Dearborn, Michigan.
