Using an Assessment of Learning System to Integrate Core Content across the Curriculum
Rosales, Jean; Sarbaum, Jeff; Sheran, Michelle; Allen, Stuart
American Journal of Business Education, v6 n1 p113-118 2013
College and university programs are under increasing pressure to effectively measure and assess student performance, knowledge, and skills in their classes, majors and programs. We discuss how embracing this assessment charge can lead to a more cohesive and educational curriculum in which students and educators alike see the connections from one course to another as well as how a program's core learning objectives map throughout the curriculum. We discuss the importance of this in today's new reality of transfer students, online education, mega-classes and adjunct faculty. Lastly, we present an example of how we have begun to harness the reality of assessment to better integrate and harmonize an introductory course and an upper level course.
