Enhancing Learning with Low Stakes Assessment and Mastery (Faculty Panel)
A panel of faculty from Math, Chemistry, and Neuroscience will share lessons learned when moving from a few high stakes assessments (exams) to more frequent low stakes assessments (quizzes) and in one case providing a mastery-based learning opportunity. Panelists will discuss why they made the shift, how it worked, and what they will do next. Ample time will be reserved for Q&A.
