The assessment of student learning is a critical skill set for faculty at U.S. colleges and universities. Too often, faculty members have little to no exposure to this important topic until they begin their academic teaching careers. This course–a complement to ALS 6015: The Practice of Teaching in Higher Education–addresses topics including: principles and frameworks of assessment, course-based assessment methods and technologies, curricular integration of assessment, and social and political issues in assessment.

When Offered Fall, Spring.

Permission Note Enrollment open to: all graduate teaching assistants and graduate students interested in using research to inform and improve their teaching.
Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: ALS 6015.
