Module 2 Discussion

 

Testing for Evaluation

 

Your first step in developing multiple choice questions is preparing a blueprint. A blueprint grid  Download blueprint grid[Docx, file size 21 KB] can help you with this process. You may use the objectives or topics of your choice and, using Bloom’s Taxonomy (Links to an external site.), create one test question for each of the cognitive domains.

 

Think about your own experiences with high-stakes multiple-choice tests such as the NCLEX, certification exams, or even annual competency exams at your institution. Consider the population of learners you will be evaluating and the consequences of an exam that does not reflect cultural differences. Explain how you will incorporate cultural sensitivity when developing tests.

 

Next, create a multiple-choice test, focused on the topic of your choice.  You will be using  fair testing guidelines (Links to an external site.) [PDF, File Size 36.10 KB] to formulate the questions that may be used to assess a learner’s knowledge of specific content.  Higher order thinking demonstrates an ability to critically analyze and evaluate a situation and create meaningful connections that may be applied in clinical practice. This discussion proceeds in nine steps:

 

Create your test blueprint.

 

Write at least two learning outcomes or competencies that the test will evaluate.

 

Provide test instructions and grading criteria for the test.

 

Design 6 multiple-choice test questions.  Remember, write only one test question per domain of learning (HINT: Remember the distractors).

 

Include your rationale(s) for each correct and incorrect answer for each question.

 

Provide the evidence to support each correct answer for each test item.

 

Explain the psychometric analysis you would use to establish reliability and validity of your test questions.

 

Submit your blueprint and test questions to the discussion thread along with answers.

 

Respond to your classmates by critiquing their test questions and rationale for the answers. Provide positive and constructive feedback related to the design of their test questions. Remember the importance of reliability and validity and bias. (Links to an external site.) in your response.

 

Post your primary response. Read any postings already provided by your instructor or fellow students. Read and respond to the conclusions drawn by at least two of your classmates. Remember to read the feedback to your own major postings and reply to it throughout the module.

 

You are expected to participate in academic conversations with peers and faculty to generate scholarly dialogue. Expectations for participation in the course discussions are described under the Discussion Rubric: Exploration, Spirit of Inquiry, and Engagement (interactions) when relating your experiences, opinions, viewpoints, and ideas supported by evidence.

Module 3 Discussion

 

Development of Evaluation Instruments in Academic Settings

 

Your first step in developing a rubric is determining the criteria or objective (Links to an external site.)s (Links to an external site.) (you may use the objectives or topics of your choice). Next, determine the levels of performance (Links to an external site.). Remember, you will need at least four criteria and four to five levels of performances as you construct your rubric. You will then describe the characteristics of the task(s) that will be performed for each of the criteria. It is important to be clear with your description to avoid any misunderstandings from the learners or other educators who may be using the rubric. Your final step will be to assign a score and accompanying grade for that score.

 

In this discussion, you create a rubric, focused on the topic of your choice. You determine the objectives for the task that you want to evaluate. Those objectives can include QSEN competencies (Links to an external site.) or skills for a specific task such as a rubric for health assessment, or community health. If you are evaluating skills in academic clinical laboratory, your rubric might be focused on listening to lung sounds or performing venipuncture. RubiStar (Links to an external site.) and iRubric (Links to an external site.) are free online rubric makers that can assist you during the development. The following steps will assist you for this discussion:

 

Create an analytical rubric.

 

Submit your rubric to the discussion thread.

 

Explain your rationale for the levels of performance, supported by evidence.

 

Discuss your rating score and grade assigned for the score.

 

Explain how you would determine validity and reliability for the rubric.

 

Think about your own personal experience as a nursing student and as a practicing clinician. Reflect on what you have learned in this module about assessment and evaluation of clinical competencies. Consider how you can use assessment and appropriate evaluation methods to bridge the theory and practice gap.

 

Respond to your classmates by critiquing their rubrics and making suggestions for improvement.

 

You are expected to participate in academic conversations with peers and faculty to generate scholarly dialogue. Expectations for participation in the course discussions are described under the Discussion Rubric: Exploration, Spirit of Inquiry, and Engagement (interactions) when relating your experiences, opinions, viewpoints, and ideas supported by evidence.

Module 4 Discussion

 

Exploring Strategies to Measure Achievement

 

Multiple strategies can be used to assess and evaluate student learning outcomes and competencies. For this activity, you will create a Poster Presentation, using PowerPoint (Links to an external site.), to illustrate a strategy that can be used in competency-based education and evaluation. You will then share your poster presentation with your peers and comment on one another’s presentations as well as respond to the discussion question. Create your poster as an electronic poster. It is recommended that you use PowerPoint. This gives you good control over your images, text, and positioning. However, please do not create more than one slide and do not attach your slide to the forum; rather, you should take a screen-shot and embed it.

 

Please reference the instructions here:

 

How to create an academic electronic poster using PowerPoint (Links to an external site.)

 

Competency assessment is all about providing a way of discovering the needs or gaps and then building the skills and knowledge people need to perform their current and or future jobs. In this discussion forum, you will be stepping out of your comfort zone and create an academic electronic poster showcasing a strategy that can be used in competency-based evaluation.

 

This forum focuses on competency-based evaluation and proceeds in three steps:

 

Include your vision board in the body of your post rather than as an attachment. See attached instructions: Embedding Your Electronic Poster  Download Embedding Your Electronic Poster.

 

Describe the competency you will be evaluating and explain how you will evaluate the competency (Note: You can use a variety of evaluation tools such as rubrics, checklists, audio feedback, or video. The sky is the limit.) Support your evaluation method choice with current evidence.

 

Create your electronic poster related to competency-based evaluation method or strategy. Be creative!

 

Reflect on what you have learned during this module. Think about your own experiences and competencies related to the evaluation process. Examine what you need to learn in order to reach the expected level of performance, including the knowledge, skills, abilities, and judgment, as you become  Core Competencies of Nurse Educators  Download Core Competencies of Nurse Educators. Explain how you will evaluate your achievement of the competencies.

 

Respond to your classmates by critiquing the evaluation method and suggest how this method may be used in other academic or non-academic programs.

 

Post your primary response. Read any postings already provided by your instructor or fellow students. Read and respond to the conclusions drawn by at least two of your classmates. Remember to read the feedback to your own major postings and reply to it throughout the module.
