Expert-Driven Assessment: Making It Meaningful
Tuesday, October 14, 2003
This bulletin illustrates how to harness technology to make evaluating student learning and development meaningful to both the expert measuring the intended result and to the decision maker who must inform policy. The bulletin discusses how technology can assist with mapping student learning to values that are meaningful to instructors and specialists, as well as to institutional, state, and federal administrators. By mapping values, articulated as intended outcomes, and by gathering meaningful data that can be linked to standards used to inform decisions and recommendations for continuous improvement, expert-driven assessment can influence state and national policies.
