NURS 6250: Assessment, Measurement and Evaluation in Nursing Education (3)

Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0

Students are introduced to models of institutional and program evaluation. Outcome assessment is reviewed within the context of specific institutional and program mission, strategic plan and accreditation considerations. Closing the loop on evaluation is stressed through the use of assessment data to drive change within the institution and program. At the program and course level the use of testing, rubrics, portfolios, and other evaluation instruments are presented. Evaluation in distance and online education is also discussed. The student participates in the development of both didactic and clinical evaluation instruments. NLN's Nurse Educator Competencies will be used as a standard for nursing education in this area.
