Collaborative Office Hours - Online Assessment for Learning Continuity


Dr. Pam Drake (Chandler/Universal Eminent Professor from COB), Dr. Emily Gravett (CFI and Philosophy & Religion), Dr. Juhong Christie Liu (JMU Libraries), Liz Thompson (JMU Libraries)


In this quick transition to online learning, student academic continuity and connection with the JMU community become the essence of learning assessment. What are some assessment strategies that can keep our students inclusively engaged, even in the sudden transition and possibly unevenly distributed technologies and resources? How can online asynchronous options like orchestrated discussion, inclusive participation in group work, open-book assessment, and place-based learning activities possibly encourage and enable student academic continuity? Strategies and practical methods will be shared, demonstrated and co-discovered with the participants.


  • Identify formative assessment for learning continuity in online environments.
  • Share formative assessment strategies in online teaching and learning.
  • Demonstrate practical methods that have been documented in online education literature.
  • Co-discover formative online learning assessment in the quick transition.
