The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most unexpected global challenges of the early 21st century. It has been devastating to healthcare systems and provided unprecedented difficulties for educators worldwide as on-ground classes were suddenly transitioned online. In addition to navigating an unknown virus, educators also faced the challenge of determining how to continue to teach and assess students during this new normal. In this paper, we will share several assessment practices we used in online and hybrid courses. We will include lessons learned from transitioning “traditional” assessments, group projects, alternative/mastery exams, and oral exams to online and hybrid classes. We will also provide a comparison of student surveys from pre- and post-March 2020, which include questions about test anxiety, growth mindset, and student perceptions of learning mathematics.
