Wolf, Kenneth; Dunlap, Joanna; Stevens, Ellen
Journal of Effective Teaching, v12 n2 p65-79 2012
This article describes ten key assessment practices for advancing student learning that all professors should be familiar with and strategically incorporate in their classrooms and programs. Each practice or concept is explained with examples and guidance for putting it into practice. The ten are: learning outcomes, performance assessments, objective tests, essays, portfolios, rubrics, formative assessment, student self-assessment, grading, and assessment technologies. The audience is professors of all ranks, but particularly those new to the art of teaching, as well as faculty developers.
