What does college teach, really? As demands for accountability intensify, meaningful measurement of broad college outcomes becomes increasingly important. Here, you'll take a journey through the history of assessment instruments, starting with the creation of the first general outcomes assessment tools in the 1980s. You'll follow the evolution of the tools, writing and critical thinking, and finally the concept of value-added analysis, an appealing but elusive goal for assessors.The choice initially is between what I call a one-shot writing assessment and an assessment of the process of writing. ... the choice of which type of writing prompt to use (for example, personal narrative, expository essay, or persuasive essay).
