This interactive poster session will demonstrate how we are embedding assessment activities within online STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) course materials in such a way as to provide immediate feedback to students as well as to provide meaningful data for instructor feedback via our Digital Dashboard for Learning (DDL). The DDL is an ongoing research and development project to create an instructional tool that collects learning data as students work through online instructional activities, summarizes the data, and displays meaningful indicators of students’ progress so that (1) faculty can monitor students’ progress and intervene where necessary and (2) students can monitor and adapt their own progress through their learning. This session complements the technical discussion of our work that is described in the paper "Assessment and Instruction: Two Sides of the Same Coin" which is presented at this conference. We hope to solicit feedback from other instructors as well as disseminate the availability of these materials for use by other institutions.
