Use face-to-face or online assessment tools and surveys to measure student knowledge, gauge progress, and gather information from students.

ITS offers an array of assessment tools such as online Canvas quizzes, surveys, assignments, iClicker, Respondus, and more!

Features and Benefits

  • ITS offers many assessment tools that allow for easy re-grading such as “throwing out” a poor question or giving extra-credit on a particular question.
  • Many ITS assessment tools allow you to check the reliability of each question using powerful item analysis features.
  • Canvas quizzes allow you to obtain private feedback from your students at anytime during the course, allowing you to consider feedback and make changes to the course in progress.
