This course is designed to develop the student┐s contextual and holistic thinking in regards to assessment, measurement, and evaluation in nursing education to include both academic and clinical settings. Students are introduced to models of institutional and program evaluation with outcome assessment being reviewed within the context of the institutional and program mission, strategic plan, and accreditation standards. 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 is presented. Evaluation in distance and online education is also discussed. NLN's Nurse Educator Competencies is used as the standard for nursing education evaluation.
