- Maximize the use of onQ, then other Queen's supported tools before considering other technology.
- Assessments should, above all, be designed with intended learning outcomes in mind, and should be linked with clear guidance and communication to students about learning and expectations. For more best practices on assessment, visit the Transforming Teaching Assessment Guide.
Assess participation using onQ Discussions by asking students to post and reply to peers postings.
This could include:
