Fifteen years ago Trudy Banta and her colleagues surveyed the national landscape for the campus examples that were published in the classic work "Assessment in Practice." Since then, significant advances have occurred, including the use of technology to organize and manage the assessment process and increased reliance on assessment findings to make key decisions aimed at enhancing student learning. Trudy Banta, Elizabeth Jones, and Karen Black offer 49 detailed current examples of good practice in planning, implementing, and sustaining assessment that are practical and ready to apply in new settings.

Toward a plan for using national assessment to ensure continuous improvement of higher education : draft by Trudy W Banta( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An outline is provided for a national educational assessment and improvement plan as suggested by the National Education Goals of 1990. The following implicit assumptions underlie National Education Objective 5.5: (1) abilities to think critically, communicate effectively, and solve problems can be defined and the definitions can be agreed upon as desired instructional objectives; (2) defined abilities can be taught in ways that engage students and promote learning; (3) reliable and valid measures of these abilities can be identified and created; (4) measures of student attainment can be administered to college graduates in settings that encourage their best efforts; and (5) results of such assessment will be used to improve instruction. Under prevailing conditions in American higher education, little support for these assumptions exists. Current measurement theory is inadequate to provide direction for teaching and learning, and the act of assessing student abilities will not, in and of itself, improve those abilities. If decision makers believe that the national interest will be best served by a comprehensive postsecondary assessment program, the principles of continuous improvement applied in industry should be used to link faculty goal-setting, staff development, assessment of instructional resources and student outcomes, and uses of assessment results for educational improvement. A 55-item list of references is included. Reviews by N. Frederiksen and by B. Wright and T. Marchese of this position paper are provided. (Sld)

Experimental program for opportunities in advanced study and research in education : 1981-82 final report by Trudy W Banta( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Experimental Program for Opportunities in Advanced Study and Research in Education was a 3-year training program (1979-82) funded by the National Institute of Education to increase participation in educational research of women and minorities at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. During the third project year, these objectives guided the program: (1) provision of practical experience for six second-year doctoral students in (a) project design and data collection in research and evaluation projects, (b) analysis and interpretation of data, (c) report writing, and (d) paper and proposal presentation; (2) student participation in colloquia and mini-courses to enhance research amd administrative skills; (3) interaction of project personnel through structured exercises in group dynamics; (4) project personnel attendance and participation at regional and national conferences and training workshops; (5) student internships; and (6) student evaluation of the project. Eighteen doctoral students (1 black male, 4 black females, 13 white females) received fellowships during the project's 3 years. Each completed at least two research projects and most presented at least one paper at a national meeting. All said they had undertaken research they would not have done without the program's impetus. Most believed the experience enhanced their employability. Students valued most the opportunities to engage in interdisciplinary research, present the research results at professional meetings, and develop or strengthen professional networks. (Author/MSE)
