Assessment Plan for CNU Online.
Ridley, Dennis R.; And Others
CNU Online is the computer-managed instructional delivery system of Christopher Newport University. Fully functioning to deliver wholly online courses since fall 1994, CNU Online has been using an officially approved assessment plan since January 1995. The plan is presented as a useful example for others developing online instructional delivery. The goal of the plan is to provide evidence of effectiveness in meeting the goals of CNU Online by using accepted standards of assessment that are consistent with state and regional guidelines. CNU Online must meet the defined state and regional standards for all on-campus programs with regard to assessment goals and quality. The levels of assessment include: (1) online program and institutional efficiency; (2) learning outcomes; (3) teaching effectiveness; and (4) student satisfaction with course delivery. Goals are defined for each of these areas, and methods for evaluation are outlined. These include standard surveys and more innovative approaches to evaluation. Some collateral assessment activities are suggested. Appendixes present an instructional evaluation survey, and a rating scale for peer group-based juried review of aspects of instructors' message logs. (SLD)
