If you’ve ever felt the tension between multiple-choice tests and more complex assessments of learning, you are not alone. Read this EdSurge article on specification grading and its potential advantages over multiple choice exams for student assessment.
The grading tools in CarmenCanvas might make specification grading an efficient approach to engaging your students and finding out more about the course content they have learned and can apply to problems. The article also makes a case for the right time and way to use multiple choice tests. If you would like to explore CarmenCanvas tools (rubrics, SpeedGrader, etc.) for specification grading, please contact the mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

View our 5-17-18 Proctorio Flash “Thursday” presentation.
The Office of Distance Education and eLearning has concluded their search for a remote proctoring tool, and they are now making Proctorio available to all Ohio State faculty, staff, and students for larger, summative, CarmenCanvas-based exams. Proctorio records exam audio and video for review by the instructor after the exam, and it marks segments of the video where the computer algorithm has identified potential academic misconduct behavior.
Proctorio is available now campus-wide to all Ohio State faculty, staff, and students in CarmenCanvas.
If you would like to get started with Proctorio , ODEE has made some initial resources available. They will continue to expand these resources and communications as Proctorio’s formal introduction to campus progresses through the summer term.
