Assessing Learning Outcomes: SALG to the Rescue!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you use new technologies in your classroom and/or make changes in your teaching to improve student learning? If so, how do you know these changes are impacting student learning, beyond course grades and SRTEs? Eileen Grodziak, instructional design specialist at Penn State Lehigh Valley, and Vicki Williams, manager of assessment in TLT, will introduce the customizable Student Assessment of Learning Gains (SALG) instrument that is useful for individual course and program assessment. From responses to verified survey questions, instructors discover which aspects of the course best support student learning, and which aspects may need improvement. Karen Kackley-Dutt, instructor of biology, and Sandy Kile, instructor of communication arts and sciences, will describe how they use the SALG to assess students' perceptions of their learning gains after using new technologies and engaging with a variety of course elements. They will also explain how the SALG is being used as part of a broader research initiative in their discipline. The highly customizable instrument lends itself to applications across disciplines. The remaining half of the session will be exploration and conversations about how the use of the instrument may be applied in participants' contexts.
