Summative Assessment: High Rigor – Low Stress – submitted by Sandra Gambarotto

summative assessmentOn February 25th, Katy Dornbos presented a ChemEd X Talk about how she has transformed the way she is assessing her students – particularly on exams. She was frustrated by how limited class time and text anxiety were restricting the depth of responses her students could provide.

Both she and her students are happy with the results!
