Using Assessment of Student Learning as a Catalyst for Change
Snell, Myra
AMATYC Review, v28 n2 p61-64 Spr 2007
Implementing intentional change is at the heart of Beyond Crossroads. Using assessment of student learning as a vehicle for improving learning is one of the underlying principles integrated throughout the AMATYC standards and expanded upon in Chapter 5. In this article three case studies from Los Medanos College in Pittsburg California illustrate how assessment can motivate positive change that improves student learning across a developmental math program. Improvements in learning resulted from collaboratively establishing clear goals for learning, responding to assessment results with definitive changes to classroom activities, and professional development that integrates math education research and classroom-based research.
