Greetings! Karynne & I are leading the next session – Building Assessment Strategies that work for you. In order to help connect what you learned in the last session to what we are doing on Feb. 11th, we’d like to you all to work on the following ‘homework’ and please post your answers before our meeting next week.
Part 1: Choose one or two learning outcomes that could be assessed through each of the following assessment vehicles: 1) a letter to the editor, 2) a position paper for entry to a professional school, 3) a poster for a peer poster session, 4) and a paper-and-pencil test. These do not have to be your learning outcomes from own course. For example, you might identify writing skills, ability to persuade in as learning outcomes assessed by #1; content knowledge, sense of audience, ability to take multiple perspectives in #2, etc.
Please post this to the blog.
Part 2: Identify one of the assessment vehicles listed above that best matches your course learning outcomes. Consider how you might modify the assessment to be a better match for your learning outcomes. Please bring this with you to our next meeting.
We’re looking forward to working with you!
Caralyn & Karynne
