Which is your strongest domain: What about your students? Where are the strengths and weaknesses of your students in terms of the domains: Assessment Assessment is the process of gathering, measuring, analyzing, and reporting data on a students' learning.

An increasing emphasis on learner-centered teaching dictates new ways to think about assessment. Radcliff and others stress that information literacy assessment occurs at three levels: Classroom Assessment - based on specific classes and tied to class learning objectives such as an information literacy course or a discipline-specific course Programmatic Assessment - based on the learning goals of a program of study connected with a particular discipline such as teacher education or nursing Institutional Assessment - based on the board goals of information literacy across the institution connected with accrediting bodies According to Blanchett, Powis, and Webbwhen planning assessment ask three questions: What do I want to measure?
Is this the best way to assess? Is what I am testing important or significant? Assessment can also be used to determine the effectiveness of the instruction.
Interacting with students about their performance can become an integral part of the learning process. In contrast, evaluation involves judging the quality of student work or instruction. For example, it may include a final score or grade.
Assessment is the key to determining whether learners have met the expectations set forth in the objectives for the particular learning experiences as well as the standards established by recognized agencies such as ACRL and AASL.
Think about the assessments used in the classroom when you were growing up. Which assessment were most useful for you and your teachers? What assessment do you prefer as an instructor? Designing Assessments In designing assessments, instructors must be balance the desire for a comprehensive assessment plan with a realistic approach to course management.
Although it would be helpful for students to receive detailed feedback on every assignment, it may not be realistic given class sizes.
Before designing specific assessments, consider the following questions: Which learning objectives will be assessed? Will assessment be formative during the learning experience with student feedback or summative at the end of the experience to measure learning?
Will assessments be norm-referenced against peer standards or criterion-referenced based on established criteria? Will assessments be authentic based on real-world situations and experiences?
Will assessments be varied including a variety of strategies? What types of assessments will be most effective, efficient, and appealing?
How will assessments be weighed? How will students submit their work? How will students access their grades and feedback?
Notice their process for creating the assessment. Peer Assessment and Review If you plan to incorporate a peer evaluation component, consider the following: Will students get credit for their job as a peer reviewer? How will this be evaluated?
