An IPA-Embedded Model for Evaluating Creativity Curricula
ARTICLE

IETI Volume 51, Number 1, ISSN 1470-3297

Abstract

How to diagnose the effectiveness of creativity-related curricula is a crucial concern in the pursuit of educational excellence. This paper introduces an importance-performance analysis (IPA)-embedded model for curriculum evaluation, using the example of an IT project implementation course to assess the creativity performance deduced from student learning outcomes. The results would serve as a basis for curriculum improvements. The evaluation model consists of such steps as determining the target curriculum, establishing indicators for the assessment of competence, developing an IPA questionnaire, conducting an IPA and improving feedback-based curriculum. The research methods adopted in this paper include literature review, expert advice and survey research. To verify the particular evaluation model, data was collected from project review conferences held by a Taiwan-based polytechnic institute. This paper demonstrates the merits of introducing a model that efficiently solves the vagueness problem when it comes to curriculum benefits and consequently improves the project implementation courses.
