How can you implement a more learning centered evaluation approach in your work environment?

Read the chapter: Experiencing a paradigm shift through assessment  (  in the attachment )     (pdf file)

This chapter focuses on the difference between a teacher-centered vs. a learner-centered approach to evaluation.  I strongly encourage you to read this chapter…according to the students last semester, teacher-centered vs. learner-centered was one of the most valuable topics in the class!

  • This chapter  is from Huba, M. E., & Freed, J. E. (1999) Learner-Centered Assessment on College Campuses, Shifting the Focus from Teaching to Learning. Allyn & Bacon.
  • Although the authors talk about learner centered assessment in the context of college campuses, it is equally valuable for those of you working in other settings.

To earn the bonus points:

    • Read the chapter
    • Discuss the chapter with others interested in bonus points in the “BONUS POINTS: Learner Centered Assessment Discussion” forum in week 5. (This forum will be for students from all groups interested in participating in the discussion.) Post a minimum of one original post and three replies, but the topic is so interesting you will likely post/reply even more!

Use the following questions as a starting point for your discussion:

    • Any of the “reflection questions” from the chapter.
    • What are your greatest learnings and/or surprises from this chapter?
    • How can you implement a more learning centered evaluation approach in your work environment?
    • Anything else you want to discuss about the article!

    • Do you use a variety of methods for level 2 evaluation or do you tend to over-rely on one or two methods?  Why do you think that is?  What are the implications of using a smaller or larger variety of level 2 evaluations?
