The Office of Academic Affairs is pleased to announce a Virtual Panel on Alternative Student Assessments on Friday, Nov. 13 from 2:00pm to 3:00pm.

As you know, a University-wide task force of faculty and staff was convened in early 2020 to study and propose recommendations on a remote proctoring solution for exams offered online. While recognizing that some programs and courses that utilize traditional exams may need a solution for online proctoring, the task force recommended that whenever possible, alternative methods of assessment should be the default method at CUNY. 

In this Webinar, a panel of CUNY faculty, experienced in the use of alternative student assessments, will:

  • share some of the alternative methods of student assessments they’ve used
  • offer advice on moving from exams to alternative methods of assessment
  • share tips for the implementation and use of alternative methods of assessment
  • answer questions from participants

The panel of experts will feature:

  • Linda Bradley, Assistant Professor, New York City College of Technology, Department of Nursing
  • Romi Kher, Assistant Professor, Baruch College, Department of Management
  • Amit Mehrotra, Assistant Professor, New York City College of Technology, Department of Hospitality Management
  • Rifat Salam, Associate Professor and Deputy Chair, BMCC, Department of Social Science, Human Services and Criminal Justice

The panel will be held via Zoom. RSVPs are not required. Please note that the maximum number of participants is 1,000; entrance to the Webinar will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please share this invitation widely. We hope that you and your colleagues will join us for what is sure to be an informative panel and a lively discussion.

Thank you to Annemarie Nicols-Grinenko, University Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs, for her efforts to organize this Webinar, as well as to curate alternative assessment resources. Please contact Dr. Nicols-Grinenko ( with any questions or concerns about this event.
