Formative Assessments as a Communication Tool

Communication in any course is crucial for student success; however, this holds particularly true in online courses. Without the organic discussion and student communication that often accompanies in-person courses, online courses can leave students feeling disconnected from their instructor. These formative assessment strategies will provide instructors an avenue for communicating with students as well as giving them necessary feedback on their learning, and they can even be utilized in face-to-face courses.
