How We Avoided Laundry List Assessment.
DeLuca, Nicholas; Darcy, C. Michael
This paper describes the assessment procedures that were employed by students and instructors in an advanced graduate course for educational administrators. Because the course objectives were a combination of cognitive objectives, performance objectives, and affective objectives, different forms of assessment were chosen for each specific type of objective. Enabling or discrete objectives were assessed informally first through checks with peer perceptions and faculty perceptions. Experiences that were to serve as prerequisites for the achievement of later objectives were assessed through a record of participation. Terminal, complex cognitive objectives were assessed through written exercises. Objectives that resulted in written reports of research efforts were assessed by the outside agencies for which they were done. Final assessment of the growth of the total group and of individual students was accomplished through public statements of self-evaluation checked by peer perception. (Author/JG)
