Abstract

In this paper, we describe several methods of formative assessment that instructors can use to inform their own teaching. The first of these is the Online Course Assessment Tool (OCAT), an instrument designed at Western Carolina University for use by faculty in voluntary peer- or self-assessment of online courses. We also discuss issues raised during the beta testing of this instrument. The second half of the paper describes several specific techniques for ongoing assessment of student learning within a course, drawing from literature on classroom assessment in higher education.
