How to design innovative on-line continuous self-evaluation tests


About This Course

In this microMOOC, we intend to provide insights into how to design and create stimulating self-evaluation tests to measure student progress during the teaching term with the principal goal of mitigating student demotivation, which unfortunately tends to increase during the teaching semester.

The tests prepared will be evaluated by other participants on the peer-assessment principle. This last activity is paramount as it enables interactive contact with other participants and their feedback.
