Assessments can be stressful for both teachers and students, and the transition to virtual education has added to the complexity of creating experiences that allow students to demonstrate their strengths while maintaining evaluation integrity.
To assist educators as the school year begins, WGU Vice President of Evaluation Operations Maureen Oâ€™Brien and her colleagues will present a four-part online seminar entitled â€œOnline Assessments: Planning for Ease, Efficiency, and Integrity.â€
Session 3: WGUâ€™s approach to verification of competency.
Western Governors University has been verifying competency at scale since 1996. Last year, more than 1.6 million student submissions were evaluated by more than 1,200 faculty evaluators. Learn how we establish competency standards, calibrate a large faculty, and provide a consistent approach to the student experience. Takeaways will include thoughts on how to use these approaches in a classroom setting.
