Section Description

The purpose of this course is to introduce you to research design, assessment, and program evaluation. If you understand research design, then you can effectively design assessment and program evaluation strategies. The course will also highlight student learning and classroom assessment. If you can assess learning in the classroom, then you can assess learning outside of the classroom. The goal is to give you a holistic view of how research, assessment, and program evaluation relate to one another. While this course only provides a “taste” of the topics, you are encouraged to take additional courses in the future that cover the materials in-depth.

Section Expectation

This is a three-credit course, which means at least 9 hours of work outside of class should be expected. We will cover a lot of material. The more you read and interact with the course material, the more you will get out of this course. Read, highlight important passages, make notes, reflect on what you learned in the discussions, complete the assignments, and attempt the extra credit opportunities. While you won’t learn everything there is to know about assessment and program evaluation in this course, you have a great opportunity to gain a solid foundation. Please note that the lectures are not a substitute for the readings. You will be expected to attend weekly class meetings prepared to ask questions or reflect on the week’s readings. You will also be expected to create meaningful conversation through YellowDig.
