    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: This assignment includes multiple measures, collaboration, integration of concepts outside the classroom, and modeling professional expectations. Students evaluate digital humanities projects and use digital markup tools to learn how to collaboratively evaluate and respond to digital work. This is an example of learning by doing: the form and content of the assignment and the assessment work together seamlessly. Students are assessed on how they mark up the digital work, how they work in a group collaboratively, and how they respond to digital work. The task models how they will be evaluated, and it is a precursor to how students will use technology in professional environments. The assessment design mimics professional work life, allowing students to perform and be evaluated in a more realistic context with professional stakes.
