Measuring Assurance of Learning at the Degree Program and Academic Major Levels
Marshall, Leisa Lynn
Journal of Education for Business, v83 n2 p101-109 Nov-Dec 2007
In this article, the author examines the validity of performing assurance of learning (AOL) activities at the degree program level (e.g., bachelor's level) and the major level (e.g., accounting, finance). She examines 3 learning goals: management-specific knowledge, problem solving, and communication. The results strongly suggest that the AOL activities for the management-specific knowledge-learning goal occur at the major level. However, program-level AOL activities are appropriate for the communication-learning goal. The evidence, although inconclusive, indicates the need for AOL activities related to the problem-solving learning goal at the major level. (Contains 9 tables.)
