Very intriguing 5 weeks indeed. You need to literally spend at least 4 hours a day, otherwise, you will be staring at a backlog. Personal experience, but I managed to pass. Happy for that!!
I had a great opportunity to learn more about the assessment and its structure. I am sure the skills that I have learnt in this course will be helpful for me in future. Thank you !!!!!

Overall, this is a very well structured course insofar that it provides learners with a strong foundation in creating assessment plans. Learners who complete this course will walk away with the ability to create learning activities that are aligned with clear CABD learning objectives. Assignments are straight-forward and give ample opportunities for learners to apply the various knowledge and skills gained through the various modules in this course. One key drawback of this course is that it relies on a peer-reviewed system. In my experience, I saw a number of students who did not provide any feedback on my assignments. As such, I did not find the "peer-review" aspect of this course to be helpful at all. A second key drawback is that there appear to be a large number of students who will try to "cheese" their way through the course. I wanted to provide meaningful peer feedback for my fellow classmates. However, my ability to do so was limited by classmates who submitted blank assignments — as if expecting that no one would flag them. Thirdly and lastly, the final quiz in Module 5 is difficult in that several of the questions ask learners to judge the quality of multiple choice questions. I found the quiz itself to be a bit ironic, given that many of the educators leading the modules in this course stressed that it is important to issue assessments that accurately test what a learner learned during the course. There was minimal emphasis on how to evaluate multiple choice questions in this course, which was why I found the final quiz so difficult.

This was my second online course and I found this course excellent. As a student I liked the step-by-step learnings and interactions, especially the videos where you can add your thoughts at certain stages on the videos. Some builds more actual case-studies to view to see rather than verbally discussed would have been useful for me personally. I also liked the interactions with my peers too. The platform is robust and clear with good nav UX (User Experience, Navigation) So important for the online student. A few glitches using from iPad to mobile but that's minor. Word of caution the final 25 multiple questions is hard even with studying and going over the content again, a few questions were tricky :) Overall very good and would recommend, so much so I'm now looking for another course. So thank you.

A lot of this course was reviewing what I have already studied when I was in university. Since having been an educator for five years since having earned a Masters degree, and having worked with many talented people in the field, assessment makes a lot more sense. It seems like night and day, in terms of selecting the right answer, but there is so much more to it, especially with item analysis. I really enjoyed this course. I do wish there were more interaction with others also enrolled in the course.

I liked the course very much, but some of the course materials where difficult to follow. The first half, on the assessment plan and constructive alignment were great. More examples would help, especially where we are supposed to learn "judgment calls" - this is difficult without a larger peer group to discuss with. If you can take the course at the same time as one or more colleagues, that would help. There is also a lot of focus on multiple choice questions, which may or may not be relevant to you.

I accidentally signed up for this course however, I do not regret taking part as it has really deepened my cognitive development of how Assessments can be chosen and the different types of assessments one can choose from. I have learnt the do's and don'ts when creating multiple-choice questions and much more. I did this course in the "nick of time" as we will be dealing with Assessments within my course of study!

The course work is good and quite interesting, however the final exam is very challenging. It was noted the University stated a very high fail rate (84% of people on their first attempt at the exam) This should be reviewed, as suggested by the course content.

Excellent course. Relevant material (videos and readings). Although, the final exam had many questions that required more information and analysis that not necessarily was covered in the previous weeks (i.e. statistical analysis).

Thanks a lot, it was a good course and added a good value to my knowledge in my carrier field as a trainer and the progress and sequence of the material was helpful and was in good sequence.

the course was great and i did learn alot, but sometimes too much has been said just to give the core of the specific information, great overall grazieeee

Great course. The peer review assignments may take a while to complete, since you need to wait for other participants to review your submissions.

it was great. i have learnt a lot more on how to provide assessment questions to students and the varying forms of assessments. thank you.

Good course but at times too theoretical. It would be better to have a single main instructor to guides us through the whole course.

I enjoyed the material and all of the different techniques used to go through this course. It was a new experience for me. I felt I had learned a lot during the session. It was a lot of work into the course, but that was good because it did help me learn. What I did not like about the course is the way it was assessed by peers. The reason for this is, I feel that the peers did not fully read my assignments as I was told I was missing information. I had doubled checked and all the information was there, but it is on a second page, so if they do not see it, they just gave me a 0, with my only feedback being that I did not complete the assignment.... Part of this course was learning about how to provide constructive feedback, but if they do not look at the whole assignment, they are not able to provide the constructive feedback that would benefit me. Therefore, the peer assessment did not work very well in my case.

Probably, the course is good for some people. But, for me, it is no so motivating. The videos are very long.
교육 기관: Vanessa R•
Yes, the ideas are great. You learn a lot from the videos and some of the readings. However, many of the readings require you to purchase them. That, however, is a small thing. The main reason I give this certificate class 2 stars is that the peer review assignments and the final quiz suck. We are asked to grade for things that weren't presented in the lectures, readings or the assignments themselves. The final quiz asks a LOT of questions about our interpretations related to statistical data; this was NOT covered in the lectures. I didn't do much of the readings on this because statistics isn't something I know or understand, so doing those readings wouldn't have helped me to pass the first time. Yes, I had to retake it; my second result was 83%, but most of the questions I missed were related to these interpretations of statistics (no surprise there, right?). There was a clear lack of alignment, something they emphasized in the lectures. It suggests that the teachers who created this course don't practice the things they're asking us to do, and the best evidence for that is the graded assignments. This certificate was free to me due to CourseraPlus; if you're thinking about spending money, don't. Just audit this certificate class, as you'll get more out of it that way. Spending money on this is a waste of money unless you need to have the certificate for your institution. I feel my learning was cheated.

This course has a good content. However, I cannot give it more than one star due to its assignments, peer-grading and misleading information. Firstly, the course is not self-paced as announced. You will have to deliver within given dates to pass the course. Thus it is not really self-paced. Secondly, the first assignment is massive. One of the questions in the assignment asks you to create a feedback plan for the entire course you will teach...for every week!! That will be a huge undertaking if your course lasts for a whole semester. And this is just one of the questions. Thirdly, your fellow students will be grading you!! Better cross your fingers and hope that they have understood the curriculum or you will be in trouble. When I pay for a self-paced course I expect it to be self-paced. I also expect the grading to be fair, and not randomly set by a student that may or may not be competent. In summary, I did not bother to finish this course, and I cannot recommend it to anyone else.
