Evaluation & Grades

“Evaluation is a method, which may or may not be graded, of eliciting a performance or demonstration of knowledge or skills from a student”.

“Grades are the descriptive faculty evaluation of an individual student's performance in a given course, test, or assignment. Grades oftentimes incorporate participation, attendance and/or extra credit, which are not true components of assessment of learning outcomes”.

Assessment

“Assessment is the examination of whether students as a whole are achieving the learning outcomes which have been developed by the department for a course or program. Assessment provides the "big picture" of whether students are meeting learning objectives”.
