Assessment activities should be designed to measure students’ progress toward the learning goals you have articulated.
Creating explicit rubrics will help you analyze student work, and can also help students to understand how to be successful in the course. Georgetown’s Assessment Portal presents a guide for developing rubrics, including links to examples.
In addition to formal assessments such as quizzes, problem sets, papers, and exams, you may also consider integrating informal Classroom Assessment Techniques into your teaching. Visit this page for some ideas.
