Best Ways to Assess Student Remotely

Hello all,

My name is Grant Meth and I am a 3rd year preservice teacher at Wartburg College. I am majoring in PE but I am also getting an endorsement in secondary science. I have had a question on my mind recently that pertains to remote assessment. My only experience with remote assessments has been in the traditional form as a quiz or test online, just like we would do in class. I shared in a class discussion recently that I think remote learning provides a great opportunity for creative projects like a short film to be used for assessment. Someone else shared that students could make a website about the topic that they are assessed on. I was wondering if anyone would like to share any ways that they have been assessing their students during this time of remote learning?

I use a 'Chemistry in the Real World' activity for my students. It really is a DIY experience. Some deliverables students have crafted include videos, podcasts, and infographics. It is much more fun to grade than reading 35 reports! In the era of paper mills, I love the uniqueness and creativity of alternative assessments! In mine, students are required to make connections to the course content, making an assessment of mastery quite straightforward for me!
