Applying Tools in Differing Contexts

 

Learning Objectives

  • Write SLOs for a broad level of program and course contexts, including course, discipline, general education or other institutional-level learning goals.

  • Given a specific discipline or program context and specified student learning outcome, select a Classroom Assessment Technique that can be used effectively to collect evidence of student learning.

  • Given a specific discipline or program context and specified student learning outcome, design test questions to evaluate student learning at an appropriate Bloomsian cognitive level.

  • Identify secondary sources of learning goals, SLOs, assessment devices, and rubrics for specific disciplinary, program, or institutional contexts.

  • Evaluate and/or adapt assessment devices/rubrics and other measurement tools/measures for use in personal instructional contexts.

  • Map program learning goals on to program courses using a formal curriculum mapping technique.

  • Review course syllabi for consistency with targeted program learning goals.

  • Design assessment to evaluate across-the-curriculum learning outcomes that may be required of individual faculty’s courses. (e.g. active learning, reading across the curriculum, writing, quantitative literacy, information literacy).
