Documentation and Evaluation of Sponsored Experiential Learning. CAEL Institutional Report No. 3. University of California at Los Angeles. Revised Edition.
Permaul, Jane Szutu; Miko, Marina Buhler
A major problem in assessing off-campus experiential learning is the need to structure the learning process and document the learning outcomes. This report describes the procedure developed by the University of California at Los Angeles, that logically analyzes the learning that is taking place and therefore helps to shape and improve subsequent learning experiences of the student. The method focuses upon a record-reflection log and an assessment matrix as tools for assessing sponsored learning. These devices emphasize the role of the student and local supervisors in evaluating and molding learning outcomes. Sample Record-Reflection Log and Assessment Matrix forms are included. Brief descriptions of other programs that provide college students with practical work experience are appended. (Author/MV)
