Basic Assumptions
Student learning is the organizing
principle of our schools
We want to achieve clarity about
learning outcomes
We coordinate teaching and
assessment to promote student
learning

Implementation” in A Collection of Papers on Self-Study and Institutional Improvement. The Higher Learning

The Challenge
 Determine outcomes for learners
 Design learning to achieve outcomes
 Develop assessments that measure
outcomes
 Develop criteria for assessing student
performance
 Connect outcomes, assessments, learning
Imagine this . . .
 You’ve just been hired to
teach
 It’s already the first day of
school
 The only materials you have
been given are a syllabus
and a text from the previous
teacher
 WHAT DO YOU DO NOW?
What you are facing is a typical
instructional design challenge
How do you
get ready to
teach?
Typical Questions





Who are the learners?
What will I teach?
How should I present the
content?
How will I evaluate students’
work?
When will I know the students
have learned?

Feature #1
 Competencies are
identified, verified, and
made public in advance
 All content decisions are
based on competencies
 This is part of the WHAT
Competencies




Establish a soil nutrient plan
Determine a tillage and conservation plan
Determine a pest management plan
Manage crop storage
Plan nursing interventions
Competencies Drive Learning
and Assessment
Feature #2
 Assessment of a competency
asks a learner to PERFORM
the competency as the
primary source of evidence
that he/she has mastered it
 This is the WHEN

Feature #3
 The criteria and conditions
for assessing achievement
are explicitly stated
 They are made public in
advance
 Assessment is criterionreferenced, not normreferenced
 This is part of the WHEN
Feature #4
 The learning activities and
teaching strategies relate
directly to the
competencies
 A variety of strategies are
used
 Activities are learner
centered

Aligning Course Design Components
Misalignment between course objectives, classroom
activities and assessment can often be the basis of
students’ lack of learning. . . researchers have found that
lack of excellence in [student learning is] caused, not so
much by ineffective teaching, but by misalignment
between what instructors intend to teach, what they
actually teach, and what they test.
