Why worry about assessing dl

Why worry about assessing DL?

@ the College & Program-Level:

  • Student Success

  • Persistence

  • (btw: success vs. retention vs. persistence)

  • “Good assessment guides good PD/ID”


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

@ the Course-Level:

Generalizability

(c.f. Oosterhof, et al, 2008)

“…the degree to which learner performances that are observed generalize to performances that are not observed.”

[i.e. are they learning what we think we’re teaching?]


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

So, how are we doing this?Caveat: We’re not saying this is right or wrong…it’s just the way that we’re currently approaching it.


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

“Comparability of distance education programs to campus-based programs and courses is ensured by the evaluation of educational effectiveness, including assessments of student learning outcomes, student retention, and student satisfaction.”

(CS 3.3.1)

The (former) Guidelines


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

Q1: Is the distance education program reflected in the institution’s strategic (or master) plan?

2009-2012 Strategic Plan

We will create a culture where all institutional actions are focused on improving student learning and success and leading to student goal completion.

PM 16—Success and Withdrawal Rates by Instructional modalities

Q2: Is there evidence that outcomes for the program have been identified?

DL-AO #1: Faculty demonstrate the ability to teach in the online environment in a proficient (student centered) manner.

DL-AO #2: Students have more educational options to pursue degrees, diplomas, and certificates due to expanded online course offerings at CCC.


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

Q3: Is there evidence that the effectiveness of the distance education program is regularly assessed and steps taken for improvement of the program?

AO #1: Faculty demonstrate the ability to teach in the online environment in a proficient (student centered) manner.

Assessment: Quality Assessment Plan, Success/ Persistence Rates, Student Surveys/Evaluations.

AO #2: Students have more educational options to pursue degrees, diplomas, and certificates due to expanded online course offerings at CCC.

Assessment: The number of internet/hybrid sections offered.

Computer Literacy - CIS 110

Same instructor teaching one section of each


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

Q4: Has the institution developed student learning competencies for the courses/programs offered by distance education? If these are the same competencies for courses/programs offered by “traditional” methodologies, is assessment identified for distance learning students separate from students taking courses by “traditional” methodologies?


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

“Comparability of distance education programs to campus-based programs and courses is ensured by the evaluation of educational effectiveness, including assessments of student learning outcomes, student retention, and student satisfaction.”

So, are they learning what we think we’re teaching?


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

And the answer is…

  • Yes! … No?…maybe??

  • PLLOs

  • CLLOs

Course-level assessment ~ CLLOs

BUS 110 … Students will be able to:

A: Explain Business Ethics and Social Responsibility

B: Describe the major concepts of business, such as Entrepreneurship, Management, Marketing, Human Resource Management, and Financing

C: Describe Business Globalization


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

Use of Results: “The on-line section needs some extra material to ‘reinforce’ or explain globalization.”


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

“Students placed more value on the CMS as an effective learning tool when they perceived the CMS as supporting interactivity among student, instructor, peers, content.” (Chou, Peng, Chang, 2010)


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

ART 111


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

A - (100 - 90): - You posted 3 or more times and you completed the Assignment with a well thought through response. (The more you post MEANINGFUL responses over 3 the higher your grade. Though welcome and expected, please understand that a One or Two sentence "feel good" post such as (... Great response Michaela!!) or (... I love how you put the meaning and then went down and talked about them. it made it easy to understand!!) will count for very little towards your grade.

Challenges

Challenges


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

“I got rid of [the discussion board]…it’s a pain in the ass.”

“I have to pull teeth to get them to post even when they get a score”

“Value of discussion board is suspect at best.”


Donald staub title iii director carteret community college

“I don’t know” [what texts and assessments the other instructors are using in this multi-section course]

“My first goal is to get the instructors to agree on common CLLOs. Then we’ll work on common assessments.”
