When: Sep 27, 2019, 8:45AM - 4:00PM
Where:

VNU-HCMC University of Science

227 Nguyen Van Cu Street, District 5, HCMC

Participants will review fundamental tenants of assessing student learning as related to learning outcomes and that information is used to improve the course or program. Building on this knowledge, participants will explore various assessment tools for determining student learning, based on the type of learning outcome, and their resulting assessment data.  Techniques used to aggregate data from these different types of assessment tools will be practiced, leading to development of software tools to aggregate assessment data streams and display them in easy to understand formats—which make evaluation much more straightforward. An electronic structure for assessment documentation (rubrics, assessment results and examples of student work) will be discussed and demonstrated. Participants will be given the software tool so they can customize it for their use.

Targeted attendees:  Interested VNU-HCM program leaders, lecturers and QA professional staff
