This benchmark portfolio describes the revisions and assessments made to MNGT 360: Managing Behavior in Organizations in the midst of COVID-19. This course is offered in the Department of Management within the College of Business at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. My goal was to improve the course design by evaluating the more effective teaching methods and assessment tools for this course. I experimented with several new teaching methods and assessment tools such as Kahoot!, online exams and offered some empirical evidence regarding the effectiveness of the tools. I found that participation based assignments are an important predictor of overall class performance. However, students also tend to lose more points on participation based assignments. In the portfolio, I also discussed the complexity of the need to transit to the online mode halfway in the semester.
