Abstract: Assessment for distance learning courses has always been a challenge because of security issues, and current accreditation assessment requirements have only compounded those challenges. Our paper reviews our experiences with evaluation and assessment in graduate distance learning courses come from several perspectives beginning with the construction of the course itself, our data collection on the perceptions of students taking the distance learning courses, and methods we have used to measure student learning. We hope to share with participants some of the software and tools we use and dialogue about the assessment problems we all encounter in the challenging arena of distance learning.
