Proposal Title

Closing the Loop: Linking Assessment with Course Design

Proposal Abstract

The objective for the session will be to show ways to effectively use assessments to facilitate the revision of course content. Best practices in assessment/course design will be presented along with a demonstration of the process using several semesters of assessment data from a course taught in our department. Attendees will be provided with an opportunity to work together in small groups to develop a plan to assess a course selected from among those taught by group members. The goal will be to develop a strategy and measures for the assessment and to consider how the outcome of the assessment might contribute in refining course content. The plans will be reviewed with the entire group to discuss strengths and potential weaknesses
