Assessment Plan for CNU Online (1996 Revision).
Ridley, Dennis R.
This assessment plan is being developed to provide evidence of the effectiveness of the implementation of CNU Online, the online course delivery system of Christopher Newport University (Virginia). The evaluation of the program is designed to satisfy appropriate standards for methodological rigor and scholarly integrity. There are three focuses to the assessment: (1) student outcomes; (2) course-based comparisons of online and classroom courses; and (3) program outcomes. Student outcomes, the traditional subject of evaluation, are the basis for the assessment, and were generally defined as the courses were established. Course-based comparisons will usually be in terms of the student outcomes, with special attention to the knowledge and skills taught in the course. The practical arrangements for comparisons will depend on circumstances, particularly in situations where the same course is taught online and in the classroom by the same professor or by different professors. In considering program outcomes, it is necessary to look at the program of online instruction as well as the specific degree program pursued. At present, only one degree program is offered online. As the evaluation progresses, development of an appropriate reporting mechanism is needed. An appendix contains the instructional evaluation survey for the assessment. (SLD)
