Abstract

When reviewing Course Level Assessment (CLA) data for courses that might benefit from revision based on “low” CLA scores, some courses exhibited interesting results. One course revealed wide variability from term to term, but when the teaching tracks were considered, the data made sense. While faculty are provided training, rubrics and criteria for assessment, it was clear that faculty in each track used different standards when scoring CLAs. Other courses were reviewed, yielding similar findings. The Senior Faculty Chair and the Assistant Dean of Curriculum developed training for faculty with the goal of calibrating CLA scores to reduce the variability. The training meeting was conducted using an audio-enabled online conference tool. CLA variability was monitored following the training, and follow-up data will be presented. The conference presentation will include a power point presentation, demonstration of our faculty training process, and after-action data analysis.
