Journal Club: Spring Term Week 5

How can we assess students’ mastery of learning objectives?  Last week we talked about multiple choice exams.  This week we’ll cast our net wider, considering other methods and how to give students feedback they can use to improve their work.  To prepare, please read:

Pages 92 – 111 of Chapter 3: Designing Significant Learning Experiences I in Fink, L.D. 2013. Creating Significant Learning Experiences: An Integrated Approach to Designing College Courses. Jossey-Bass, San Francisco.  The book is available as an e-book from the UO Library.

Also suggested: Designing Better Quizzes: Ideas for Rethinking Your Quiz Practices. (2018). Faculty Focus, Magna Publications.  Available here for free, but registration is required.  Alternatively, contact Julie or Austin for a pdf.

It’s week 5- a great time to get some feedback on how students are learning in your course.  The UO is currently piloting new student experience surveys.  If you’re interested in participating, go to and follow the link in the Phase One section.

Thursdays 9am, LISB 217
We look forward to seeing you there,
Julie and Austin
