Pedagogical and Related Practices

Sound pedagogy assumes that the course includes a range of assessment methods that essentially “identify” the student. Examples include:

  • Using discussion boards in ways that include personal reflections on reading, work submitted, and so on.
  • Assessments used allowing faculty to identify sudden changes in academic performance or a change in writing style.
  • Asking students follow-up questions to assignments, such as, “Expand upon this statement you made,” “Tell me why you chose this,”
