Documentation talk:Building Cohesion Between Goals and Assessment

From UBC Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The purpose of teaching is to support learning. Dee Fink suggests that "all decisions relating to a given course (or other learning experience) — from the selection of reading materials to the assessment process — should be judged by their contribution to this end." When a course is well designed, it is easy to see a relatively cohesive plan which is intended to guide the learners toward both some predefined goals and some incidental learning which may be discovered upon personal reflection.


Creating Rubrics:

open ended actvity vs. closed finite tasks.

table format: 4 columns: skill domain, objective, activity, assessment

The Process:

  • Background
  • Key Questions (Dee Fink: context, high stakes/low stakes, formative/summative, what do you think students need to learn, what would you hope they learned)
  • Evaluating Your Plan.
  • choice of assessment method

Building your framework:

table: skill level, objective, activity, assessment
