Summer Conversation - Course Marking for Research on Impact

Course marking for open and affordable course content provides institutions with access to a wealth of data that can be used for reporting to funders, policymakers, and research purposes.

Thanks for posting this Michael, and I hope we get some great participation in the webinar.

Note that the reference provided is published in Pressbooks and openly available for reading.

But even better, the resource is set up automatically for annotation, a fantastic way to add comments, questions, and more to specific phrases in the book.

Also, for someone (like me) relatively new to course markings, what is very valuable are the case studies from several institutions including a number of CCCOER / OEGlobal members.

The The Midwestern Higher Education (MHEC) research team, on behalf of the National Consortium of Open Educational Resources (NCOER), recently conducted a study of course marking and has shared a dashboard of select quantitative questions, titled “Course Marking Landscape Analysis”. The full set of survey questions can be found here. A full report will be published in the near future.
