The workshop has seven objectives:

  1. Help participants distinguish between Criterion 2 program objectives and Criterion 3 program outcomes. For example, give them sample definitions and see if participants think these are reasonable.
  2. Help participants understand what student outcome are, and how to develop them, and relate them to the EC2000 Criterion 3 outcomes.
  3. Help participants develop several measurable performance criteria for each outcome.
  4. Help participants map outcomes and topics across courses.
  5. Examine existing classroom assessment methods and tools, in order to prepare a preliminary assessment plan program.
  6. Help participants look at the various assessment methods that are available and select appropriate method(s) for each outcome.
  7. Help participants think about how to put selected assessment methods into practice.
