Taking Initiative in the Age of Assessment
Boyd, Josh; Morgan, Melanie; Ortiz, Anna Victoria; Anderson, Lindsey B.
Communication Teacher, v28 n2 p117-129 2014
Assessment is an increasingly important part of communication pedagogy, not just for periodic accreditation reviews but for ongoing justifications for resources and course design. This project relates the story of how another college at our university prompted us to prove that our Science Writing and Presentation course really delivered what it was supposed to deliver. Our resulting assessment allowed us to maintain control over the course and how it would be measured, along with providing us with data we are leveraging to demonstrate student learning outcomes while maintaining and even extending the impact of our course and attracting increased instructional resources.
