Im investigating possibilities for online assessment. Currently my students mail me the url’s to blog posts with their submittable work. It gets rid of all the paper but the amount of emailing to confirm submission and then send out results and feedback is a bit ridiculous. There has to be a better way.

So far what I’ve found around online assessment seems to revolve around software tools:
26 Teacher Tools To Create Online Assessments
Software for online testing and quizzes
Online Assessment Resources

And tips of the trade:

I have been developing some new assessment activities in Blackboard this week, a little bit beyond what i usually do and have been looking around at resources.

Both my universities: Monash and RMIT, have stashed all their Blackboard training modules behind logins, but I notice there are some fairly detailed Blackboard training modules and pdfs over at Victoria University which are freely accessible. Kudos to them.
