Malak, Sharon; And Others
This document is the first volume in a set of five Career Education Measurement Handbooks intended to help local education personnel in measurement and evaluation. Divided into eight chapters, this handbook provides practical guidelines for assessing experiential learning and includes historical and theoretical information relevant to experiential learning. The introduction found in chapter 1 presents the rationale, organization, and suggestions for using the handbook. Chapter 2 provides an overview of experiential learning and explains some key contrasts between it and traditional learning. Chapter 3 presents several viewpoints of persons who have had experience in the assessment of experiential learning activities on the secondary level. Chapter 4 describes the methods most frequently used to assess various components of experiential learning programs. Chapter 5 presents viewpoints of persons with experience in postsecondary experiential programs. Guidelines for use in planning, implementing, and reviewing programs are included in chapter 6; and chapter 7 provides a quick index to the major concepts addressed by each of the writers in chapters 3 and 5. The final chapter suggests resources to aid in the further study of assessment in experiential learning and to help with the development and operation of a program. (BM)
