Assignments and Assessment

Sharpe, N. R.

We cannot discuss assessment of students without also discussing student assignments. Why? The content of a course depends on the customized curriculum of each individual instructor, department, or even, in some cases, the institution. Therefore, here I am going to focus on what we might choose to assess, how we might choose to assess our students, and how we can design our assignments to assist us in our assessment strategies. Finally, I will present an example from my applided multiple regression course.
