Expert Assessment of Experiential Learning--A CAEL Handbook.
Reilly, Richard R.; And Others
Principles and guidelines for the use of expert judgment of experiential learning are outlined. The report deals with a number of basic issues that apply to expert judgment, such as the role of the evaluator in defining criteria, and structuring the assessment procedure so that it will be reliable and valid. The importance of establishing objectively defined standards is stressed. Four methods of assessment are described: interviews, assessment of student products, performance tests, and assessment of written materials. A number of suggestions for the improvement of assessment and a discussion of problems to avoid are included. (Author/MV)
