Mathematics: Assessment & Integration of Success Skills
Barrows, Roxane; Crawford, Bernita
AMATYC Review, v26 n1 p29-37 Fall 2004
Hocking College, like many institutions of higher learning, has struggled to define, document, and assess those general skills deemed necessary for success in the workplace and life. The mathematics faculty have spent many years developing appropriate tools for assessment of student academic achievement. Although the process has taken several years, it has evolved into an ongoing method utilized by faculty to improve instruction and learning. Not only are math faculty assessing student academic achievement, but they are also integrating "Success Skills" into their mathematics classes. Two Success Skills, "Communicates Effectively" and "Maintains Professional Skills and Attitudes," have been integrated into the mathematics curriculum and strategies for assessment of them have been started. The mathematics faculty also developed a test to address the Success Skill "Demonstrates Mathematics." The information from this test is shared with technology/program coordinators. Future steps involve integrating all eight Success Skills into the mathematics classes.
