If you are searching for a list of good resources to browse to build a toolbox to help you teach, or if you just need an app or program that takes care of one thing, the Center for Teaching and Learning can help. We’ve built a list of programs, apps, and other items for our faculty in order to save you some time. 

Assessment and Reporting 

Quizzes in Canvas are nice for assessment as they are self-grading and provide students with an instant score. They create challenges because students will use books and materials to take the exams. They may take them collaboratively, and if the course is using publisher materials then students may be finding those answers on the broader internet. 

High stakes exams can use remote proctoring services. If you would like more details, please contact us. 

The most difficult to cheat assessments are large-scale, scaffolded projects that are due in pieces across several weeks. These can be more work to grade but are more academically honest. Ultimately the assessment method should match the nature of the course and the discipline

EdTech Toolkit 

Following is a list of apps and programs that you can use to enhance your teaching. Some of the apps are free, some are paid, and some are cross platform. A little research will be required on your part to find out which ones work best for you.
