Assessment in Service-Learning
McDonald, Betty
Online Submission
Offering meaningful service to the community while engaging in active learning is a pedagogical strategy that has come to be known as service-learning. Both learner and the community are mutual recipients of benefits derived from the process. The fundamental question that remains is, "How do we assess the learner in this non traditional scenario?" For this pilot study this present paper attempts to provide readers with some contemporary tried-and-tested ways for assessment of service-learning based on the researcher's experiences with learners at a tertiary educational institution in a Caribbean setting where tourism is the main source of foreign exchange. It is hoped that the varied methods discussed serve as a catalyst for developing innovative methods of assessment in service-learning thereby advancing knowledge in this field. (Contains 6 exhibits.)
