What can you accomplish with your new knowledge of assessment and evaluation in higher education?
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to utilize your knowledge of assessment and evaluation in a position in higher or adult education, either now or in the future. Those who can plan and implement assessment effectively are in demand, for assessment is necessary to establish accountability and to generate improvement in education. Accordingly, your course project is to consist of two components. The first is a real-world, on-the-job presentation of a practical plan that you are encouraged to propose for implementation either in your current position or in the future. The second component of your course project is a paper that explains your rationale for the decisions you made as you designed your plan.
For the presentation of your Assessment and Evaluation of Learning Plan, convert the plan, compiled from your Unit 6 and Unit 8 assignments and Units 8 and 9 discussions, into a PowerPoint or a Kaltura presentation. Create the presentation for a specific audience, such as a committee, an advisory board or a board of directors, or staff or faculty attending a department meeting. Be sure to follow the instructions for constructing the presentation carefully, for this is to be a professional presentation.
In the second component of your course project, the Rationale Paper, you will explain and support the decisions you made for your Assessment and Evaluation of Learning Plan. This Rationale Paper should begin with an introduction that explains the meaning and value of assessment, examines common misconceptions about assessment, and presents strategies for engaging faculty or staff members in assessment efforts. You will use your Unit 3 assignment to create the content of this introduction. The remaining sections of the paper will align with the sections of the Assessment and Evaluation of Learning Plan, providing a rationale for what you propose in each section of your plan. Remember that the purpose of presenting your plan is to convince the decision-makers in your audience to consider implementing your plan. Both components of your course project are to be well supported by the required course readings, because when we develop assessment, we establish our credibility by using and citing authoritative sources.
