A key task in teaching is aligning course goals, and learning objectives, assignments, or activities to assessment goals.
Each discipline approaches this alignment in unique ways. Reflecting on alignment of your goals and objectives, assignments, and assessments reduces the confusion and frustration for students. In this session, we will focus on the following questions:
- How do your course goals, curricula goals, and disciplinary goals interrelate in your course?
- How do you know your students are learning?
- Do your assessment strategies assess student performance?
- What will your Teaching Statement say about how you align your assessment of students with the learning goals you have for a course?
