Evolving from Quantity to Quality: A New Yardstick for Assessment
Fulcher, Keston H.; Orem, Chris D.
Research & Practice in Assessment, v5 p13-17 Win 2010
Higher education experts tout learning outcomes assessment as a vehicle for program improvement. To this end the authors share a rubric designed explicitly to evaluate the quality of assessment and how it leads to program improvement. The rubric contains six general assessment areas, which are further broken down into 14 elements. Embedded within the article are links to the full rubric, an example of an exemplary assessment report, and a how-to guide for conducting and reporting quality assessment.
