Assessment is about more than just grading. It's about gaining insight into student progress, getting feedback to improve teaching and learning, and measuring the effectiveness of a course.
In this article, you can learn about features in Blackboard which can support you in performing the following tasks:
Set up online assignments for students to reflect on what they have learnt in class.
Review student performance in the online assessment. Through the review, you can have an idea of students' understanding of the topic. You will provide them with feedback. You may then reiterate some points in the coming lesson if necessary.
Send reminders and provide feedback based on students' performance. You could then remind students or encourage them to keep the good work up depending on their participation.
