Outcome Assessment Strategies
In a program of high academic quality, evaluation plays a vital role in the implementation of the model. Given the characteristics of online learning, the evaluation is done through a combination of methods that vary according to the characteristics and objectives of the module where it is applied. It will mainly be a summative and integrative evaluation to ensure the expected learning.
In some subjects, online assessments are incorporated that provide the student with instantaneous feedback on their performance, and or feedback from the teacher. Some alternatives for online assessment of learning are short answer tests, projects and papers, quizzes and self-evaluation systems.
