Paper Title
Alternative Assessment Techniques for Increasing Interactivity Indistance Education Courses

Alternative assessment techniques are essential for increasing student learning and interactivity in distance education courses. Rather than simply answer multiple-choice questions, students can choose activities in an academic contract. By using a contract, students will be active participants in their own learning. Contracts add a dimension of authenticity to distance learning courses and students can learn, retain, and transfer more of course content. Guidelines and an example of a contract will be given.
