Assessment

Assessment, as defined here, is a major part of pedagogy and used to answer questions such as these:

  • How well do the students understand the concept?
  • Are the students improving in their understanding?
  • How well are the students able to perform the skill?
  • Why are the students unsuccessful?
  • Is the faculty member an effective teacher?
  • How is the mentoring process contributing to the growth of the individual?
  • What is the difference in learning when a new teaching strategy is used versus the former strategy?

Select the topic from the side bar at the left and either explore the content or use it as a guidebook to successful assessment practices.

In addition to the information included here, we invite you to participate in events focused on Assessment listed in our calendar and to contact the Faculty Center for additional assistance.
