When you are creating a course, strive to design with the end in mind. After you have established a set of measurable learning objectives for your course, work to develop assessments that are aligned with your stated learning objectives.

Then consider the assessments as a way for the student to prove they are capable of that mastery.

Students often commit acts of academic dishonesty not because they are lazy, but because they did not understand that what they were doing was considered cheating. This video will explore various definitions of cheats in order to help you communicate clearly to your students what you define as cheating. [Read more…]
