Learner-Centered Assessments
 

LEARNER-CENTERED TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT 

Assessment Issues - Brief overview of salient issues for faculty, administrators, and librarians to consider.

Learner-Centered Teaching: Five Key Changes to Practice - Recent book by Dr. Maryellen Weimer in which she challenges teachers to make meaningful changes in five aspects of the classroom environment to promote learning. 

Integrating Resources, Grading Criteria, Sample Exercises - Includes suggestions for establishing explicit grading criteria and introducing the peer review process in different disciplines.

MERLOT: Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching - Includes links to online learning materials and assessments.  The Assignments include explanations of how an instructor used the learning material.  Illustrates how material might be integrated into a learning environment.

Ideas for Library/Information Assignments - This list is organized to reflect the primary teaching objective of the assignment.  The categories include learning research skills (e.g., providing an anatomy of a term paper, keeping a research log, or preparing a poster session); understanding the structure of "the literature" (e.g., examining a classic, tracing a scholar's career or an important paper); and critical reading  (e.g., comparing film reviews, comparing a film to its source- book or play, or analyzing material cited in a research paper).  

Alternative Research Assignments - San Diego State University librarians list thirty-five assignments that encourage students to locate information resources, think critically and acquire research knowledge.
