The Assessment Supplement: A Faculty-Designed Addition to NCC's Manual, "Concepts & Procedures for Academic Assessment." First Edition.
Nassau Community Coll., Garden City, NY.
This document is the first in a series of annual, faculty-designed supplements to Nassau Community College's (NCC's) (New York) manual, "Concepts & Procedures for Academic Assessment." The supplements are intended to provide faculty a forum through which they can communicate assessment designs and the impacts of those designs on student learning in their classrooms. Each article is written by a faculty member who is participating in the classroom assessment process, and who is committed to using that process to optimize the quality of the education achieved in his or her classroom. This supplement includes eight articles, each addressing different assessment methods: (1) "A New Faculty Member's Account of the NCC Assessment Process" (Michael Perna); (2) "Guidelines for Planning and Implementing Course-Based Assessment" (Gregory J. Lehenbauer); (3) "Traditional and Nontraditional Tools to Measure Student Learning" (Kumkum Prabhakar); (4) "Using a Knowledge Pre-test/Post-test to Assess Teaching Goals" (Lyle Hallowell); (5) "The Multi-section Course Challenge: Assessing COM 103" (Esther Bogin); (6) "The Assessment Process and Student Ownership Of Their Learning (Nontraditional Ways to Assess Learning)" (Esther Bogin); (7) "A Rationale for Eliciting Student Feedback" (Patricia Caro); and (8) "COM 101: A Student-Based Assessment Model" (Errol Hibbert). Appended is a four-page pullout that summarizes the goal-based assessment process. (JA)
