Alternative/Flipped Finals – Beyond Blue Books and Bubble Sheets


Tired of the traditional blue book and bubble sheet final exam? Instead of having students cram and recall what they learned, why not try a culminating ePortfolio that has students returning, reflecting, and reconstructing the course work and goals to synthesize, culminate, and demonstrate mastery with evidence to tell their learning story. The goal is to shift from an instructor audit to student ownership and make an assessment as learning a meaningful experience.

Learning Goals:

After successfully completing this workshop you will be able to:

  • state reasons for incorporating an alternative/flipped final
  • describe at least one way to conduct an alternative/flipped final
  • apply best practices in designing an alternative/flipped final
