The aim of this chapter is to help guide language instructors with assessment strategies for online courses. The chapter is based on the theoretical background of constructivism and principles for distance learning. Assessment strategies for both formative and summative assessments include tools for implementing discussion boards, wikis, e-portfolios, integrated skills assessment, synchronous and asynchronous communication, and scoring tools. This guided chapter is appropriate for instructors with little to no experience in online testing, or for the more experienced with topics including scenario-based assessments and gamification. Furthermore, the chapter covers implementation strategies that can affect test performance and validity in regards to screen design, security, and directions.
