Workshops that get results

The five steps of assessment will be covered in workshop masterclasses by experts in their field at the Assessment in MENA (AIM) 2019 conference this April.

The goal for each workshop is that every attendee will walk away with practical, tangible knowledge to fully understand and comprehend how to assess the standards that they wish to achieve in their student learning, programs, faculty and institute.

Attendees will be able to:

Set goals and objectives by;

  • Distinguishing between goals, objectives and learning outcomes;
  • Articulating program learning outcomes;
  • Developing a plan to assess program learning outcomes.

Map learning opportunities by:

  • Understanding what a curriculum map is;
  • Know the importance/role of curriculum maps in meaningful program level outcomes assessment;
  • Understanding how to create a curriculum map to guide program level outcomes assessment.

Assess goals and objectives by:

  • Looking at the faculty role in curricula design;
  • Writing academic goals and objectives;
  • Looking at objectives/learning outcomes and the assessment plans;
  • Understanding the assessment process.

Analyze and discuss results by:

  • Looking at widely used and abused statistical analysis of assessment grades;
  • Understanding the possibilities and ethics of learning analytics;
  • Looking at the principles and practice of tutor feedback to students on assessments.

Use the data for improvement by:

  • Looking at strategies for establishing buy-in for necessary data-informed improvements;
  • Documenting improvements (particularly important for accreditation).

Every attendee will walk away with the knowledge and power of how to apply this learning immediately to their institute and academic setting.
