Abstract

As assessments take a larger role in both live and online courses per ABA regulations and best practices, this article advances the understanding of law students’ perspectives regarding assessment, offering empirical data on their assessment preferences in an online doctrinal course. The data used for this article consists of the mid-semester anonymous course evaluations of approximately 300 total students. The results provide new insight into law students’ assessment preferences and perspectives, which can be used to build assessments maximizing their learning.
