Online Teaching: Assessment, Feedback and Honesty

November 9 - December 6, 2020 | Online

Online Teaching: Assessment, Feedback and Honesty


In Online Teaching: Assessment, Feedback and Honesty, you will learn how to reinforce the expectation that students will engage in ethical decision making in their professional lives, how to develop an online culture that includes explicit ethical dimensions, and how to identify best practices to limit unethical behavior. You will be guided through a critical reflection on how academic honesty is encouraged in your own institution's online programs, how courses and individual assignments can be structured to encourage academic honesty, and how technology can be used as control measures to both encourage honesty and document ethically problematic work. You will also learn how assessment differs for online environment, and then you will have an opportunity to translate some of your current assessment methods from the face-to-face to the online environment. You will have access to instructor-level permissions to create assessments, and will then receive and provide peer feedback, as well as instructor support on your assessments.

Topics for Discussion:

  • Encouraging academic honesty: setting expectations and communicating processes relating to academic honesty
  • Individual and group accountability: techniques for building a culture of responsibility in an online environment
  • Controls for online classes: understanding why people act unethically and structuring courses and assignments to encourage honesty, ethical decision making, and using technology to establish controls that verify honesty of work
  • Formative and summative assessment strategies
  • Responding to students
  • Preventing and detecting cheating

Learning Objectives

  1. Implement mechanisms and policies that encourage academic honesty
