Enhancing Curriculum and Delivery: Linking Assessment to Learning Objectives
Combs, Kathryn L.; Gibson, Sharon K.; Hays, Julie M.; Saly, Jane; Wendt, John T.
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v33 n1 p87-102 Feb 2008
Typical university-wide course evaluations do not provide instructors with sufficient information on the effectiveness of their courses. This article describes a course assessment and enhancement model where student feedback can be used to improve courses and/or programs. The model employs an assessment tool that measures student perceptions of importance and their current competence in course-specific learning objectives both pre- and post-course. Information gained from this assessment enables course improvement over time and also allows for modification in delivery and/or content of the current course. This model is intended to augment traditional course evaluation mechanisms based on specific and actionable feedback on learning objectives. (Contains 3 figures. Course Assessment Survey is appended.)
