Published on

What does a meaningful assessment look and feel like? How can Moodle be used to enhance a learner's assessment experience? In this session I will cover a few of the key factors to consider when designing assessments, as well as some of the activity types in Moodle that can be used. I will also dip into a couple of example to illustrate what can work well ... and what might not. By the end of the session you should have some additional ideas to take away and use when creating assessments in Moodle, along with considerations that will help ensure that they work for your learners and for you.
