State of the Art Learning Labs and Assessment.
Driskill, Gerald W.
Noting that assessment continues to be at the forefront of the speech communication discipline and the academy in general, this paper reflects on one speech communication department's struggle to make assessment meaningful and doable. The Speech Communications Department at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock uses such "low tech" assessment methods as portfolios, yet the department finds itself in the throes of learning "high tech" options. The paper provides a case study on "high tech" assessment by first describing the context and background of the department's assessment efforts. The remaining sections of the paper are devoted to describing two high tech resources the department is using and the specific lessons learned about these assessment methods. An appendix presents a timetable for assessing basic course learning objectives. (RS)
