Promising Assessment Alternatives

The National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA)  has released its second Occasional Paper:

Three Promising Alternatives for Assessing College Students’ Knowledge and Skills  by Trudy Banta, Merilee Griffin, Teresa Flateby, and Susan Kahn 

Of the various ways to assess student learning outcomes, many faculty members prefer what are called “authentic” approaches that document student performance during or at the end of a course or program of study.  The contributors draw on their rich assessment experience to illustrate how portfolios, common analytic rubrics, and online assessment communities can more effectively link assessment practices to pedagogy.
