Professor Dancelot and the Perils of a Misaligned Course

No one would really teach a dance class this way, would they? This video takes a humorous look at what can go wrong when a course’s learning activities do not align with the intended outcomes and assessment. Although this is an exaggerated example, it reminds us to look at the courses we teach to see if any of the elements are out of alignment.

Assessment & Instructional Alignment – An Online Tutorial for Faculty

Learning assessment is more than testing students and assigning grades. It is a system that provides feedback about student learning. This tutorial introduces an assessment approach using the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. Using the taxonomy can improve your assessment system and improve student learning by aligning course objectives, activities and assessments with each other. In this course you’ll learn how to:

  • Write observable learning objectives.
  • Choose learning activities that support your learning objectives.
  • Choose assessments that match your activities and objectives.
  • Use a taxonomy to align learning objectives, activities and assessments.
