Abstract

Assessment and learning outcome alignment contributes to the transparency, quality and progression of a program. In this presentation, we will share a process used to evaluate the alignment of assessments with both course content and the learning outcomes framework. This framework links learning outcomes at each level of the institution, from individual courses to majors, programs, and the university. We can use this framework in online settings to collect data at each learning outcome level. The pilot project at the University of Guelph will show how this data analysis can guide discussions about the improvement of program curriculum by exposing misalignments.

Elements of Engagement

To engage the audience, there will be an opportunity to explore these connections further by applying the process to their own discipline in an activity and discussion.
