PRE-CON.A.02 - Evaluation Mapping: An Interactive Workshop to Create Alignments in Your Course

The Evaluation Mapping Tool was designed at Fanshawe College to support faculty in course design and development incorporating alignments of vocational learning outcomes, course learning outcomes, level of skill, domain (cognitive, affective, psychomotor), and the corresponding evaluation and weighting of evaluation. This tool was developed in support of the longstanding trend in Ontario, and indeed globally, toward outcome-based education that promotes learning towards those identified outcomes created with student success in mind.

Outcome-based education has a long, extensive history dating back to the 1950’s (King & Evans, 1991). It has grown very quickly throughout North America (Spady & Marshall, 1991) as the educational system has grown and shifted its focus from traditional teaching methods to the exit skills that graduates should demonstrate in order to find success following their education. This trend has also grown internationally for the purposes of demonstrating quality related to student success through formal student assessment, as well as demonstrating continuous quality improvement through the achievement of outcomes (Goff, Lori; Potter, Michael K; Pierre, Eleanor; Carey, Thomas; Gullage, Amy; Kustra, Erika; Lee, Rebecca; Lopes, Valerie; Marshall, Leslie; Martin, Lynn; Raffoul, Jessica; Siddiqui, Abeer; Van Gastel, Greg, 2015).

The Evaluation Mapping Tool was developed to enhance excellence in teaching and learning, to encourage faculty to critically assess their course outlines and to enhance alignments during course review, design and development.

At the end of this workshop, practitioners will be able to use the Evaluation Mapping Tool to:
  • Identify the relationship between Vocational Learning Outcomes and Course Learning Outcomes
  • Determine the domain(s) associated with the course outcomes in accordance with Bloom’s Taxonomy(revised) and relationship to evaluation
  • Explain the relationship between course outcomes and level of skill to evaluation
  • Explain the relationship between time spent teaching and weighting of evaluation
This session will provide an overview of the Evaluation Mapping Tool and will engage participants in a mock application of the Tool to a course outline. An overview of the results of the pilot study conducted at Fanshawe on faculty perception and reception of the tool will also be shared along with plenty of opportunity for questions and answers. Feedback from participants on the use of the Evaluation Mapping Tool will be sought. Participants will also receive an electronic copy of the Evaluation Mapping Tool itself for future reference and application.
