Using a CAS Self-Study to Teach Assessment Practice
Bourke, Brian
Research & Practice in Assessment, v12 p47-52 Sum 2017
There are likely as many approaches to teaching assessment as there are people teaching assessment. Graduate courses on assessment can be structured with a singular focus, such as learning outcomes assessment, or along a competencies-based framework. Such frameworks include the Assessment Skills and Knowledge (ASK) Standards developed by College Student Educators International (ACPA) in 2006 and the ACPA/NASPA Professional Competencies (Bresciani & Todd) introduced in 2010 and revised in 2015, which include the Assessment, Evaluation, and Research competency area. The purpose of this article is to share reflections on an approach to teaching assessment through the use of a CAS Standards (Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education, 2012) self-study in a master's level assessment course during the Fall 2015 semester.
