To make supportable claims about program effectiveness and student learning, gather and analyze for multiple lines of direct evidence, complemented by relevant lines of indirect evidence. Direct evidence of student learning is tangible, visible, and measureable and tends to be more compelling evidence of exactly what students have and have not learned. Definition of InDirect Methods Indirect evidence of student achievement requires that faculty infer actual student abilities, knowledge, and values rather than observe direct evidence of learning or achievement. o A possible weakness of direct measurement is that not everything can be demonstrated in a direct way, such as values, perceptions, feelings, and attitudes.

Direct evidence can be observed through student products and performances. After creating measurable student learning outcomes (SLOs), the next step is to develop direct and/or indirect measures that align with those SLOs and will provide evidence of the level of student learning the course/program has achieved.

Direct – The assessment is based on an analysis of student behaviors or products in which they demonstrate how well they have mastered learning outcomes. Direct evidence can be observed through student products and performances. After creating measurable student learning outcomes (SLOs), the next step is to develop direct and/or indirect measures that align with those SLOs and will provide evidence of the level of student learning the course/program has achieved. These include capstone projects, senior theses, exhibits or performances (see below). They are cumulative and often reveal what students have learned at the end of a unit or the end of a course.

Direct – The assessment is based on an analysis of student behaviors or products in which they demonstrate how well they have mastered learning outcomes. Direct evidence can be observed through student products and performances. After creating measurable student learning outcomes (SLOs), the next step is to develop direct and/or indirect measures that align with those SLOs and will provide evidence of the level of student learning the course/program has achieved. These include capstone projects, senior theses, exhibits or performances (see below). They are cumulative and often reveal what students have learned at the end of a unit or the end of a course. Direct evidence of student learning is tangible, visible, and measureable and tends to be more compelling evidence of exactly what students have and have not learned.

Examples of direct and indirect student learning Direct evidence. These techniques provide a sampling of what students know and/or can do and provide strong evidence of student learning. Indirect methods provide the perspectives of students, faculty or other people who are concerned with the course or program or In other words, direct evidence of learning indicates what students can demonstrate, as well as the degree to which students have moved toward mastery of faculty-identified expectations. Student Learning Assessment: Options and Resources, Second Edition, 2007) The total (direct and indirect) effects of leadership on student learning account for about a quarter of total school effects. Aim for a variety of types of evidence, or multiple data sets, to provide a richer picture of the learning. To make the process easier and more efficient, instructors can now digitally capture and track direct evidence of student learning… Many faculty and instructors already evaluate students’ learning using direct measures (scores, ratings, grades, etc. Some While both types of evidence have a place in an assessment program, best practices suggest (and Middle States requires) at least some collection of direct evidence. Both are important, but indirect evidence by itself is insufficient. • Student reflections on their values, attitudes and beliefs, if developing those are intended outcomes of the course or program (C) Indirect Evidence of Student Learning (Signs that Students Are Probably Learning, But Exactly What or How Much They Are Learning is Less Clear) • Course grades (C) Instruments in which students demonstrate what they have achieved or learned related to explicitly stated learning outcomes.

Indirect Assessment refers to any method of collecting data that requires reflection on student learning, skills, or behaviors, rather than a demonstration of it. Indirect methods reveal characteristics associated with learning, but they only imply that learning has occurred. Ratings of student skills by their field experience supervisors. Include indirect and direct assessments as well as formative and summative assessments. Scores and pass rates on appropriate licensure/certification exams (e.g., Praxis, NCLEX) or other published tests (e.g., Major Field Tests) that assess key learning outcomes. A portfolio is a systematic and organized collection of student work selected to demonstrate to others direct evidence of students’ efforts, achievements, and progress over time. – Direct assessment involves students doing something—that is demonstrating the extent of their knowledge / abilities of a given learning outcome – Indirect assessment involves perception of that ability / knowledge • Perceptions help guide us, but they complement our direct knowledge of student ability, not replace it. 199 0 obj <>stream Direct evidence of student learning is: tangible, observable, and self-explanatory. • Student reflections on their values, attitudes and beliefs, if developing those are intended outcomes of the course or program (C) Indirect Evidence of Student Learning (Signs that Students Are Probably Learning, But Exactly What or How Much They Are Learning is Less Clear) • Course grades The program assessment process involves gathering evidence of student learning.
