AES 50th International Conference on Audio Education, 2013
Assessment Tools: Grading the Creative
Phil Valera (Barton College), Christopher Plummer (Michigan Technological University), Curtis Craig (Penn State University)
A panel-led discussion using example assignments and assessments provided by audio educators will examine the relationships between assignments, assessments and learning. Starting with how assessment tools help organize an instructor's critical response and evaluation of a project, we will discuss how that can increase clarity and consistency. Special focus will be placed on how assessment supports or undermines the encouragement of creativity and self- motivated learning.
