The university provides a few alternative options for faculty to utilize. Available tools are listed on the Digital Learning website (https://digitallearning.utah.edu/forms/request-lti.php).
Things to Consider
Consider the pros and cons of a different delivery option and how you can simplify quizzes and exams in your course.
- Can I alter my method of assessment to a more simple delivery?
- If you are primarily using paper-based, in-class exams is there any reason you are not able to recreate the exact same exam experience in an online Canvas quiz/exam?
- Could I convert an exam to a project based assignment that relies on demonstrating a competency rather than taking an exam that leans primarily on rote memory?
- Can any of my smaller low stakes exams be truncated or eliminated?
- Is this quiz/exam absolutely essential for me to meet the course outcomes?
- Can you combine quizzes/or exams?
- Can you reduce the number of questions to simplify the exam conversion process?
- Is it absolutely essential that this exam is proctored?
- Can you rely on Canvas quiz features to ensure quiz security?
- Is it possible to alter the questions to allow my quiz/exam to be open book?
- What resources do I have access to help me convert my in class exam to an online exam?
- Can TA's and/or student employees help me with my online course conversion?
- Do you have any colleagues that are familiar with Canvas and online teaching who could answer questions.
A Word about Security
The University of Utah takes the security of quizzes and Exams very seriously We encourage faculty to do all they can to uphold this commitment. We should all be looking for creative ways to protect the integrity of the testing process.
