This course helps future educators measure and evaluate the level of learning their students have achieved and presents fundamental concepts of what constitutes reliable tools and rubrics for measuring students’ classroom and clinical performance. It explains how to develop a test blueprint, assemble, administer, write and score all types of tests and test questions, and analyze tests and test performance for both classroom and clinical evaluation. Concerns such as academic honesty, cheating, and maintaining test security throughout the testing process are discussed as well as guidelines for deterring cheating on both paper and pencil and online exams are included. This course offers strategies for evaluating higher cognitive levels of learning (Blooms Taxonomy) and for evaluating written assignments with scoring rubrics. In addition, it explores important social, ethical and legal issues associated with testing and evaluation. Evaluation strategies used by nurse educators are discussed as well as how they balance the aspects of admission, progression, and retention to ensure good program outcomes.
