Summative Evaluation Plan EDTECH 512


SUMMATIVE EVALUATION PLAN The summative evaluation plan will consist of a Reflective Journals within each module, a Course Project Rubric and two survey instruments. At the conclusion of each learning module will be a journal tool where learners will reflect upon their learning and course project progress. The culminating assignment for the course is a project. The Course Project Rubric will be used by learners and the instructor to determine the learners grade on their final project. IN addition, learners will be asked to reflect upon this in a final journal entry. To assist with course design revisions, one survey instrument, called the Module Survey, will be deployed to learners at the conclusion of each learning module. The other survey, called the End of Course Survey, will be deployed to learners during the last five days of the course. Results from these surveys will be analyzed, a report will be made, and recommendations provided and used for course design improvements and for the addition or removal of course content. The timeline for this is in the next section. The surveys and rubric are included in this document. DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS TIMELINE
