How Will I Assess Students in an Online Course

By the time I became an instructor, I had taken hundreds of test and written almost as many papers, and occasionally handed in projects like a diorama or model.  In comparing a test and a model, it is harder to determine with a test whether a student can apply their knowledge. Tests tend to measure knowledge, not application of knowledge.
