Chapter 9: Course-based assessment and student feedback

William J. Miller

Extract

While programmatic assessment is becoming an increasingly essential task for departments hoping to maintain accreditation and please various internal and external stakeholders, for an individual faculty member course-based assessment is also vitally important. Faculty members need to know the strengths and weaknesses of student performance within their courses, along with their own skills in fostering student learning. By objectively examining student knowledge gains and deficiencies, along with utilizing course-level instructor feedback to improve teaching strategies and tactics, faculty can help foster an environment that permits students to reach (and even stretch) their potential.
