A FACT2 Innovative Assessment Symposium: Helping Your Students Demonstrate Learning

Held April 7-28, 2022

Schedule of webinars:

  • Week 1: Webinar: Ways to Assess Students Using Multiple Pathways through a Course
    These assessments use non-traditional methods that allow students multiple ways to progress through the course depending on their preferred learning methods or assessments. The group identified four main groups of methods for allowing students to do this: 1) Specifications Grading, 2) Contract Grading, 3) Gamification, and 4) Adaptive Learning.
  • Week 2: Webinar: What Can Real World Assessment Look Like?
    Authentic assessments is when students create or compose something that is intended for a real audience for a real purpose in a real forum and that receives real feedback from a real audience outside the classroom (so the student gets feedback from a person or people other than the teacher and other students in the class). The teacher and other students may also offer feedback and assessment at any point during the creation or composition process, but the outside audience’s feedback is required and is taken into account in the grade, even if the teacher disagrees with the judgements of the real audience.
  • Week 3: Webinar: Strategies for Creating Socially Just Assessments
    Social justice assessment considers factors such as race, culture, language proficiency, socioeconomic status, and ability while working to dismantle systems of power, bias, and oppression in evaluation of student learning. Symposium participants will learn specific approaches, including equitable assessment, labor-based grading, and ungrading, in addition to strategies for applying these best practices in their courses.
  • Week 4: Webinar: Re-examining Assessing Classroom Learning using E-portfolios
    Learning Recognition is the process by which learning, regardless of source, is acknowledged, validated and credentialed. Individuals continue to learn through work, life experiences, and personal study. Some of this learning can be recognized, regardless of the source of learning or the method by which that learning is evaluated, verifiable learning is valid learning. By recognizing learning acquired by all students, we provide more opportunities that enable students to be successful within the classroom.

FACT2 Online Symposium: Responding in real-time at SUNY to a global crisis

Managing the COVID-19 Crisis in the Spring and Planning for Fall

Held May 28, 2020

Confronted with a worldwide pandemic mid-way through the academic year, the SUNY Community responded by quickly pivoting to remote learning.  This special event critically examined the many challenges and decisions that comprised the response and looked ahead to how we move forward learning from the process and how this experience has changed higher-education.
