Instructor Guide: Assessment for Credit

Guidance for instructors teaching the Assessment for Credit courses in the OSTM program


Welcome to the Instructor Guide for the Assessment for Credit courses in the OSTM program at Brandeis. Students can earn three graduate-level credits per topic area by completing an Assessment for Credit at the conclusion of the two micro-courses within a given topic area. Each three-credit bundle is equal to an elective course within Brandeis GPS. There is an additional cost and assessment for graduate credit.

As the course instructor, you are responsible for supervising the students' work and grading the final submission. This guide will support you in that effort, providing tips and guidance for each major aspect of the course.
