Starting from Scratch and Getting Somewhere: Assessment of Oral Communication Proficiency in General Education across Lower and Upper Division Courses
Avanzino, Susan
Communication Teacher, v24 n2 p91-110 Apr 2010
Communication departments are expected to conduct program level assessment, as well as assessment of communication in general education. Although the expectation for data-driven student learning assessment is growing, relatively few examples exist for doing so effectively. This article serves as a model to help faculty conduct effective assessment of communication in general education. Its three objectives are to: (1) report on a completed study of oral communication assessment within general education at both lower and upper-division course levels; (2) provide a pragmatic guide for departments beginning assessment programs; and (3) address foreseeable challenges and benefits. (Contains 7 tables.)
