A Study on Blended Learning Assessment Methods for Laboratory Intensive Courses Teaching

Guangzhi Qu and Lunjin Lu

Abstract—Blended learning has become more and more popular for educators and students. It is crucial to have appropriate assessment methods to enhance the learning quality and effectiveness of teaching. Lab intensive course teaching poses more challenges. In this study, traditional assessment methods, i.e., lab exercises, demonstration, written report, and multiple choice questions are combined in an innovative way. End of course evaluation and course grade reveal that the students benefit more by getting higher marks in the blended assessment compared to the written questions alone process during a two-year experiment.

Index Terms—Blended learning, assessment methods, laboratory intensive courses teaching.
