Title: WHY Student Assessment?
Post by: Jennifer Price on December 13, 2011, 03:52:13 pm
Dear Students,

In an effort to support and enhance student learning outcomes, the graphic design department at AiPOD has begun implementing a series of student assessment initiatives to help gauge and track student competency. Each year a plan is developed and submitted to our office of Institutional Effectiveness. This plan outlines our goals and assessment methods for the coming year. Annually, we will be gathering data from quizzes administered in three courses occurring at different positions on each program grid as well as reviewing portfolio outcomes.

The Goals of Student Assessment


For example, Bachelor students will complete a quiz in their 6th quarter and another in their 9th quarter. In addition, they will be assessed on visual work during 9th and 11th quarters. Associate students will complete a quiz during their 4th quarter and another during their 6th quarter. In addition, their visual work will be assessed during these same quarters. Digital Design students will complete a quiz during their 3rd quarter and their visual work will be assessed during this and their final quarter.
