Partnership & Commitment to Lifelong Learning

Never did we think that 2020 would bring so much change to our lives! Yet, despite all of the disruptions, we as a community rose to the challenge of remaining connected, but socially-distant as we continued serving students and providing them an authentic learning experience online.

AEFIS Academy was designed to promote communities of practice where everyone can learn, teach, collaborate, and innovate among the greatest minds and thought leaders in authentic assessment, learner success, skills recognition, and lifelong learning.

Our mission is to connect assessment and education professionals to allow them to be more productive and successful. We are stronger and better together! And we will continue this collaboration in the New Year thanks to leaders like you!

Thank you for your partnership and commitment to lifelong learning!

Best wishes for a joyful holiday season and a happy, healthy New Year!

Reflections on Trust: Cheating in a Pandemic

As part of that report, we examined the intersections of those findings with other COVID-19 related reports on the shift to remote instruction and students’ experience of teaching and learning during that time, offering considerations for practice in the fall and beyond. While August was only a month ago, in pandemic time it feels like at least 8 months have passed since the report was released. Based on conversations with assessment professionals and questions raised about learning in the fall, the report remains relevant all this time later.

The Unexpected Parallels Between Art and Assessment

This past January, I was lucky (or worked hard enough) to receive a research grant from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA.

This, however, was a Project Completion Grant, and the project was not about assessment, but part of my professional practice as an artist.
