Abstract / Synopsis
This paper discusses our new approach to assessing students’ learning. This approach includes the use of a final project rather than a final cumulative exam. We suggest that students taking a deep dive into one particular math concept and being able to make connections between that concept and the real world are educational achievements during this pandemic. We also argue that there is value in online learning because students who learn online choose to use library resources and develop their own interests by attending office hours, all of which benefit their learning.
