Monmouth University features an array of Information Technology courses for most majors [IT 100], Math and Science majors [IT 102], and Business majors . These courses feature problem based assessments across a variety of platforms. Pearson MyITLab assesses students on simulations and projects. Students are also assessed by the instructor by completing various assessment tools and submitting them to the Learning Management System, called eCampus. Additionally, MyITLab and TurnItIn [on eCampus] examine student submissions for plagiarism. This presentation intends to articulate ways to prevent students from being overwhelmed due to multiple assessment platforms, how to use the analytical data from assessment submissions to help students or modify instruction, and the role scaffolding plays in the learner assessments.
