Online National Standards 3: Assessment

You prioritize incorporating accurate, quality assessments and delivering important feedback in your classroom, but are you wondering how to maintain those efforts in an online setting? In this course, you will review the National Standards for Quality (NSQ) Online Teaching and Online Courses to dive deeper into the teaching standard for Assessment & Measurement, and the online course standard for Learner Assessment. You will explore indicators and examples of these standards in both online teaching and courses through topics including variety, alignment, student progress, and student needs.

In this course, you will:

  • Describe what the NSQ Standards are and identify the particular standards for learner assessment and measurement,
  • Examine indicators that support assessment variety, alignment, learner progress, and learner needs,
  • Identify examples at the elementary and secondary level that portray ways to apply the standards to learner assessment and measurement, and
  • Reflect on your current practices and begin to determine ways the standards might help you to grow professionally.
