The shift to online learning comes with major shifts for instruction. As instructors and designers create more project based learning opportunities, demand cooperative work from students, and prepare learners for the demands of a 21st century workforce the question is: how do you quantify 21st century skills? While the instruction may change, the traditional assessment system still relies on points, percentages, and letter grades. This session will share several rubrics used by national and international organizations to assess 21st century skills such as cooperation and collaboration. Additional time will be spent on how to modify the rubrics for your particular context.
