Abstract

New technologies are making it possible for instruction, both face-2-face and online, to be more interactive. This paper discusses ways to apply six time-tested face-2-face formative assessment strategies in online settings. The strategies are: One-minute paper, opinion polls, one-sentence summary, peer instruction, student-generated questions, and embedded learning. The techniques were selected because they can be used in any classroom delivery format and any subject or domain, they are easy for faculty to deploy and quick and easy for students to complete, and they enable faculty to provide quick feedback to students while they monitor student progress. The strategies will be helpful to all instructors in both online and traditional classrooms and improve the quality of instruction in both.
