Connecting Teaching and Assessment in Higher Education: Embracing the Challenges
Stadulis, Robert E.
Quest, v58 n4 p382-394 Nov 2006
This article presents the entirety of a speech delivered by the author during the twenty-fifth Dudley Allen Sargent Commemorative Lecture. In this speech, the author provided some coherence to the varied conference presentations and how they might "connect and collaborate." The author used the context of higher education instruction to offer some specific suggestions about teaching and its evaluation. If educators are to promote the type of learning that will result in the greatest utility in their students' careers, they need to challenge them to think creatively and resourcefully. This means that they are able to adapt to changing and novel situations encountered in their professional lives. A variety of techniques were identified that might promote such thinking. Challenges can be provided in exams, in course flexibility, diversified content, and measurement experiences that entail play, fun, and problem solving. (Contains 1 figure and 2 endnotes.)
