Course Evaluation: Assessment

Assessment as well as feedback are important in courses. The most common assessment types (and they should be used in courses) are the formative and the summative assessment. Additionally, diagnostic assessment (sometimes called pre-assessment and often done before the course starts or at the begin of a course) or finally benchmarking as an assessment are used.
Assessment in TIBL courses always must take the training approach, using sustained learning, into account.
Hint: The most flexible method is the formative assessment.

Assessment methods and formats are explained at the beginning.
Multiple assessment methods are foreseen (minimum two different, for example formative and summative assessments).
Expected outcomes are explicit and tied to learning outcomes, assessments and relevant case studies or other well-fitting activities.
Assessment examples are provided in the first meeting of the course information.
Adequate feedback – as defined in the sustained training approach – is foreseen for all types of assessment (and training activities performed by trainees).
Electronical performed assessments are secure, exclude cheating, and guarantee the identity of the assessed person.
Assessments are evaluated regularly with the viewpoint of trainees success as well as focusing on the used methods and the up-to-date status of the assessment (this refers to used data, uses examples and related issues).
