The second of two CWSEI Impact assessment papers has now been published. This pair of articles summarizes results of using several instruments to independently assess the impact of CWSEI-funded improvements on 54 courses in our Department (Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences). The two papers are cited here:
- Part 1 is Jones, F. “Impact Assessment of a Department-Wide Science Education Initiative Using Students’ Perceptions of Teaching and Learning Experiences.” Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education 42, no. 5 (July 4, 2017): 772–87. doi:10.1080/02602938.2016.1188057.
- Part 2 is Jones, F. “Comparing student, instructor, classroom and institutional data to evaluate a seven-year department-wide science education initiative“, also published in Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, and available online at http://www.tandfonline.com/eprint/egSy5EEYZZxPtTRYbeyI/full . The PDF there is fine but they screwed up Table 4 in the HTML version. It will end up on paper in Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Ed. like Part 1, probably in late spring 2018.
