Signs & Traces: Model Indicators of College Student Learning in the Disciplines.
Adelman, Clifford, Ed.
This report examines possible national indicators for learning outcomes in the individual disciplines of higher education. It consists of versions of five project final reports, each underscoring a distinct approach to developing a model in the context of a specific discipline. Each model applies, however, to several similar disciplines. Stressed in all the models are creative approaches to student assessment which include both criterion-referenced and norm-referenced information. Papers have the following titles and authors: "Models for Developing Computer-Based Indicators of College Student Learning in Computer Science" (Jerilee Grandy); "A Model for Assessing Undergraduate Learning in Mechanical Engineering" (Jonathan Warren); "Model Indicators of Student Learning in Undergraduate Biology" (Gary Peterson and Patricia Hayward); "A Study of Indicators of College Student Learning in Physics" (James Terwilliger, J. Woods Halley, and Patricia Heller); "Model Indicators of Undergraduate Learning in Chemistry" (George Bodner). Papers are followed by references, and appendixes, which detail model recommendations and criteria. (DB)
