Assessment in the Age of AI

Technological advances like ChatGPT require us to transform the way we assess student learning. While technology may seem like an enemy we’re fighting against in our courses, it also offers us opportunities to transform teaching and learning. This year’s Teaching with Technology Summer Institute will focus on using campus technologies to develop innovative assessments that both engage students and more authentically measure their learning. Participants will explore best practices to design assessments that deter cheating and gain a deeper awareness of learning technologies available at Georgia Tech to facilitate innovative assessments while minimizing grading and feedback load. By the end of the institute, participants will have selected a technology and begun building an innovative assessment for use in a course. 

This four-day institute will be conducted in a hybrid synchronous format. The first two days will take place in person, and lunch will be provided. The last two days will take place in a synchronous Zoom format to allow our multiple technology presenters to attend. 

Participants in this Institute will:  

  1. Discuss the challenges AI poses to traditional forms of assessment 

  1. Employ best practices in assessment design  

  1. Identify campus learning technologies that allow for innovative, authentic assessment of student learning while minimizing grading load 

  1. Select a technology to use in a course 

  1. Begin designing an assessment using the selected technology
