Summer 2017 Edition
Intersection Theme: Technology as a Tool for Assessment of Student Learning
We all know the classic learning assessment cycle: 1. Develop clear statements of desired student learning outcomes; 2. Design experiences to provide opportunities for achieving outcomes; 3. Assess student achievement of outcomes; and 4. Use the assessment results to improve teaching and learning.
The question posed for this edition of Intersection is - How has your institution successfully employed technological tools to assist you in completing this assessment cycle?
We are less interested here in the particular proprietary software application/system you are using (though you certainly can tell us what you are using) and more interested in hearing how employing that application or system has enabled you to collect and respond effectively to students learning outcomes data.
We'd also be very interested in hearing from institutions that have created their own in-house technological solutions to assessment challenges. You may consider writing about what prompted the in-house approach, how it was developed, what challenges were encountered during implementation, how effective the in-house solution has been, and if you are sharing your strategy with other institutions.
Some of you may have valuable stories to tell about everything from selection process, to implementation strategies, to how technology has made your lives as assessment professionals better – or worse.
Please consider drafting an article to share your experiences with the readers of AALHE’s Intersection.
Submissions should be sent to edition editor: Jane Marie Souza at firstname.lastname@example.org
DUE DATE: JUNE 30, 2017
General Guidelines: Articles should be 700-2100 word and of general interest to assessment professionals. The emphasis is on readability over technical details, although the use of statistics is not discouraged. APA style should be used for citations. Submissions should be not be used to market specific products.
