About the course

Quality assessment involves moving beyond ‘seek and destroy’ comprehension questions and into tasks that require higher order thinking. Our workshop will show you how to link assessment to learning and develop tasks and quizzes that engage and stimulate your learners.

You will take a piece of your eLearning, develop a clear set of assessment criteria, then design tasks that push your learners to show deep understanding of the material.


This course is for learning designers at beginner or intermediate level who are looking for ways to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of their assessment tasks.


By the end of this course, learners will be able to design tasks and write assessment questions that elicit responses to show deep understanding of content.

Please bring

  • An internet capable device with keyboard, laptops preferred
  • A piece of eLearning you are working on
