Evaluation as Learning: Course Evaluation as Part of the Learning Process.
This paper describes an example of a course evaluation where the evaluation process becomes an important part of the learning process. The setting is an action-learning based course in an executive program. The participants apply a framework (the X-model) for perceiving processes to their own learning. The framework is presented, and experiences from the perspectives of the participants and the instructors are described and discussed. Tentative conclusions are drawn from the experiences of using this type of course evaluation, including the following examples: (1) make a clear distinction between the learning processes of the instructors and those of the participants; (2) put the responsibility for the evaluation of the learning process with the individual; and (3) design the evaluation process in concert with the course content. Finally, there is a general discussion on how evaluation can be used as a lever of learning. (Author/AEF)
