Reilly, Erin D.; Williams, Kyle M.; Stafford, Rose E.; Corliss, Stephanie B.; Walkow, Janet C.; Kidwell, Donna K. – Online Learning, 2016
This paper utilizes a case-study design to discuss global aspects of massive open online course (MOOC) assessment. Drawing from the literature on open-course models and linguistic gatekeeping in education, we position freeform assessment in MOOCs as both challenging and valuable, with an emphasis on current practices and student resources. We…
