Written Assessment in the Era of Generative AI

August 19 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

This event is part of the CTLT Summer Institute, taking place from August 19–22, 2024.

Join your peers in an interactive workshop where you will reflect, assess and re-imagine a writing assignment from one of your courses.

AI’s emergence presents serious challenges for many of our written assessments. Collaborate with your peers to understand and unpack these challenges and reevaluate the learning goals, design and assessment of student writing in this new context.

Questions that will frame our discussions include:

  • What specific kinds of learning are we trying to assess?
  • How do we signal these outcomes to students?
  • How well do our guidelines and rubrics match these goals?
  • What do we mean by terms like “argument”, “clarity”, and “depth of analysis”?
  • How might we design assessments that promote our learning goals when students have easy access to generative AI tools like ChatGPT, Google Gemini and Gramarly?


  • Laurie MacNeill, Associate Dean and Professor of Teaching Department of English Language and Literatures, UBC
  • Andrew Owen – Associate Professor of Teaching, Department of Political Science
