Begin with the End in Mind: Streamline Formative Assessment Using CALI LessonLink

Date: Wednesday, July 27, 2022, 2:00 – 2:45 PM ET

Webinar Description:

This webinar explains how CALI LessonLink can make formative assessment easier to administer and more effective. “Starting with the end in mind” means clarifying how learning outcomes relate to formative assessment before data is gathered and analyzed. To use LessonLink, an instructor assigns a CALI lesson, then students click through the link to access the lesson. CALI captures score and interaction data the instructor can download after students finish. The hard part of this process is not data analysis, it’s articulating how learning outcome and formative assessment relate so that data analysis provides helpful insights to instructors and students.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Attendees will be able articulate measurable relationships between learning outcomes and formative assessment tools.
  2. Attendees will be able to download CALI LessonLink data and analyze it in Excel.
  3. Attendees will be able to generate suggestions for improving instructor teaching and student learning after analyzing CALI LessonLink data.
