Assessments

Assessment Methods

Analysis of exam, quiz, or homework items linked to specific learning outcomes

Assessment DetailsThere is a plan to administer a quiz, measuring students' knowledge of policies relating to academic and progress probation, to students in the AAPS 104 class during the Spring 2013 semester. A pre-test will be given near the beginning of the class and a post-test will be given towards the end. It is estimated that 4 course sections, containing between 60 and 88 students, will participate in the assessment.
Learning OutcomesUpon completion of this course students will be able to select appropriate academic policies (e.g. academic renewal) to improve their grade point average and regain good academic standing.
CriteriaIn assessment conducted in Spring 2012 AAPS 104 students got an average of 2.58 questions right, out of 4, on a quiz measuring students knowledge of academic policy relating to academic and progress probation. Prior to that assessment the instructors had determined that if average scores for all students fell between 2-2.9 correct than instructors should consider making improvements to the course. Instructors have planned improvements to the course for Spring 2013 semester. If the average post test score, for assessment done in Spring 2013, is notably higher than 2.58 instructors will consider this an indication that the new teaching methods help to imrpove students' learning and their efforts are a success.
