5 Tips for Implementing Student Learning Outcomes
A key factor in driving institutional effectiveness is measuring outcomes. It all starts with a smart plan to develop a meaningful set of outcomes that support student learning and meet regional and accreditation standards. Amanda Kin, Dean of Institutional Effectiveness at Jefferson State Community College in Alabama, discussed her department’s process to develop and measure meaningful student learning outcomes that drive and demonstrate institutional effectiveness.
The Domino Effect of Universal Assessment Design
Cross-disciplinary program and lower-division courses have always had multiple instructors for a single course. It does not necessarily lead to consistent assessment, particularly in models where instructors design all exams. Assessment inconsistency can lead to unreliable results that usually show up just when the students need those skills the most—as they encounter the more difficult material in upper division courses. Scantron assessment development expert Jennifer Neal discusses the principles of Universal Assessment Design and explores the cumulative effects produced when universal design is incorporated into assessments.
