Assessment of the Experiential Learning of Women for College Credit in the Area of Women's Studies. (Preliminary Working Draft.)
Sackmary, Benjamin; Hedrick, Hannah
While much experiential learning (EL) may possess a potential for credit in the area of Women's Studies, such learning is not usually identified as Women's Studies or awarded credit in that area. This paper provides materials that will serve as a set of preliminary guidelines for the development of assessment criteria by which women may receive college credit for EL applicable to Women's Studies. The paper presents general standards for the assessment of EL: statements of the goals of Women's Studies programs; descriptions of specific Women's Studies courses at 31 different colleges; and information relevant to the assessment of EL. Also included are sample portfolio materials representative of the actual experiences of five women. (Author/BW)
