Best Practices and Advice for Online Learning Assessment

The COVID-19 crisis is not only going to disrupt the delivery of course content, but also the way student learning is assessed. Learning assessments will need to take place online and they will not be proctored - which could result in significant impacts on academic integrity.

Building high-quality online courses would take these factors into account from the very earliest stages in planning the overall design of the course. Given the crunch time in moving courses online because of COVID-19, we ask instructors to do their very best to balance the learning needs of students by providing formative feedback and to fairly judge their overall performance while minimizing academic dishonesty.
