Concerns related to gainful employment, student loan debt, student retention, and graduation rates have trickled down to the program and classroom level to directly impact the ways in which student learning is documented and assessed. In this era of heightened scrutiny and increases in accountability measures, what do educators need to know about assessment, its purposes, and practices? This online learning module focuses on how this topic applies to higher education, and K-12 educators will also benefit from this training.
After completing this module, learners will be able to:
Each of our learning modules follows our four-part framework:
LearnIt. Our Assessment of Learning course includes 22 videos broken out into 5 different section giving educators a depth of information on the topic.
DoIt. Each course includes an opportunity to practice the theory in a classroom-focused scenario. In this course teachers are asked to select an assessment strategy that they haven’t used before, design a plan for trying it out, and implementing that plan.
ShareIt. Using the built-in community, collaboration is encouraged. Each course allows educators to share their DoIt experience as well as any additional learning.
ProveIt. At the end of each learning module an assessment is provided for educators to demonstrate what they have learned.
