Abstract

This chapter acknowledges the challenges surrounding assessment techniques in online education at the higher education level. It asks specifically, “How do we know our online students are learning?” To get closer to answering this question with confidence, various strategies ranging from participation techniques to online group work, peer and self-assessment, and journals and portfolios are described. The role of online mentoring as a supplementary strategy is also introduced. The chapter concludes with a survey of advantages and disadvantages of the various strategies.
