"Avenue ASL:" Transforming Curriculum through Design and Innovation

, ,

TLRPTIL Volume 52, Number 2, ISSN 8756-3894


Between 1998 and 2002, enrollment in American Sign Language (ASL) curricula at the postsecondary level has increased 433% nationally, representing the largest enrollment percentage gain of all world languages. This unprecedented demand for ASL linguistic study has created a wide range of instructional challenges, the most pervasive of which involves assessing and measuring learner progress. There has been an absence of efficient, effective, and technically valid systems available for instructors to evaluate ASL student outcomes and document learner progress. In this article, the authors outline the challenges faced by one ASL program, detail the innovative features of their solution, describe the design process taken by the team, and discuss recommendations for future AECT design showcases. (Contains 4 figures.)
