How to Facilitate Assessment in Your Online Course

We interviewed Clarke University instructor, Teri Zuccaro, about bringing assessment into your online Accounting course.

How would you recommend a new faculty member get started?

“Connect provides many useful reports that can be generated from the data.”

What specific Connect tools would you recommend using?

The most common reports I use are:

  • Assignment Results (Grade book)
  • Student Performance: This report is useful since I assign algorithmic problems, and I can view assignments in progress and view the number set each student received.
  • At-Risk Report: I use this report after my first exam (generally the third week of class). This report tells me which students are having difficulty in the course.
  • SmartBook® Reports

Other tools I recommend using include:

  • Concept overview videos are included with most accounting texts and are a good tool to reinforce learning objectives
  • Use videos to demonstrate how to use the Connect tools
  • Use videos to communicate with students
