Understanding Knowledge Gaps in Business Education
While it is certainly important, indeed an accreditation requirement for assurance of learning, to understand student knowledge levels based on scores obtained through standardized testing that allows for external comparisons, what is not well understood is why students missed specific types of questions, which would indicate a knowledge gap. The purpose of this presentation is to understand why students miss questions, which would suggest potential knowledge gaps.
Assurance of Learning: Continuous Quality Improvement
Assurance of Learning (AoL), which is driven in largely by governmental and accreditation agencies, refers to using quantitative and qualitative results to demonstrate whether students have achieved learning goals. Many versions and terms of AoL exist. All are essentially saying the same thing: provide evidence that you are doing what you say you are doing with respect to the goals, objectives, and outcomes that you have for the student’s educational experience.
