Questions for Ksenija: 1. What kind of questions (multiple choice, open-ended, true/false) do you use? 2. How much time do you give for each type of questions? 3. Do you reuse the questions from quizzes on your midterm?

4. Do you notice any cheating? I have heard from other instructors that students are taking tests together (over the phone) or post questions on chat apps to source the correct answers. How do you deal or may deal with these situations?

Q for Ksenija --- with the 34, 45, 12, 9 % … how does that reflect the balance of what's "important"... are tests 3x more important than mini-quizzes? Are tests 4x more important than homework?

As an instructional support staff person, faculty are freaking out about cheating. Lots of these examples are things we tell them to do but they seem to spend more time trying to police students than changing the way they teach. How do we encourage faculty to change? Any ideas besides group work for faculty teaching LARGE courses?

I really like Ksenija's approach in which she counts only a subset of a larger group of assignments towards the final course grade. That "wiggle room" is really valuable to both the instructor AND the student.

I'm going to go back through this recording and make a cheat sheet for change!

We’ve been talking about instructors assessing students. Are there any practices in these virtual environments to enable students to assess themselves?

There is a way to insert simple code into that first question that Ksenija just mentioned that will insert the student's name by the way!

Tip 1: Adapt Assessment Strategy to Fit Course SizeTip 2: Frequent Assessment that allows for “drops” (the value of retrieval practice)Tip 3: Create Assessment Strategies that encourage “studying” (striving, pushing, knocking)Tip 4: Difference Between Learning to Learn and Learning to TestTip 5: Remove motivations for cheating!
