Student Online Self-Assessment: Structuring Individual-Level Learning in a New Venture Creation Course
Journal of Management Education Volume 29, Number 1, ISSN 1052-5629
The use of self-assessment instruments to determine students' entrepreneurial characteristics represents a well-accepted practice in entrepreneurship courses, and many professors are only now beginning to embrace Web-based instruments. We describe how we use a comprehensive array of online self-assessments in an undergraduate New Venture Creation course required of Xavier University entrepreneurship majors. We illustrate how we designed in-class and out-of-class assignments around these self-assessments using Bandura's social learning theory. Our approach can be adapted to other types of management courses by modifying the set of self-assessments and the design of assignments to the particular course objectives.
