Creative formative assessments

Abstract

This showcase shares our experiences with creative formative assessments using affordances of the digital, including reflective blogging, ePortfolios, student-chosen assignments, Twitter games, alternative CVs, and student-created liquid syllabus. We also discuss lessons learned as faculty developers when looking at formative assessment as an opportunity for deeper understanding of student learning and support participants in brainstorming creative assessments for their context.
