Developing Learning Objectives for a Model Course to Prepare Adults for the Assessment of Prior, Non-Sponsored Learning by Portfolio Evaluation.
Stevens, Mary A.
A study was conducted in order to develop a systematic method for the evaluation of students' prior, non-sponsored learning for the award of college credit at Blackhawk College (Illinois). It was determined that a course designed to prepare the student for assessment of prior learning was the best way for the institution to provide assistance to the student in developing a portfolio for evaluation. A survey of institutions offering similar courses elsewhere was made and pertinent literature was reviewed in order to identify appropriate means and objectives for an assessment preparation course. Summaries of the specific types of learning usually included in such courses were then prepared, organized by means of Bloom's Taxonomy, and were translated into learning objectives for both the affective and cognitive domain. It was recommended that Blackhawk College implement the proposed assessment preparation course using the objectives delineated in this study. (JDS)
