What does it take to deliver thousands of different assessments to thousands of students each year?
Rio Salado College, one of the largest online colleges in the United State – with 67,000 students — knows the answer: collaboration.
The people who run the college’s Questionmark assessments wear many hats. They are instructional designers, authors and programmers, as well as networking and IT services staff. Teamwork between people in these varying roles is essential. And since the college delivers more than one million assessments each year, external collaboration – with Questionmark staff – is essential, too.
A team from Rio Salado explained their cooperative approach during this year’s Questionmark Users Conference, and we’re happy to share the handouts from their presentation with you: It Takes a Village – Collaborating for Success with High-Volume Assessments.
This presentation includes an overview of how the college uses surveys, quizzes and tests within its extensive online learning programs. It also focuses on some of the many lessons gleaned from Rio Salado’s many years of involvement with Questionmark.
