CI 636 Assessment and Evaluation Methods in Applied Communication

In a variety of instructional settings, including, but not limited to traditional classrooms (e.g., corporate training, online instruction, health care interventions, conference proceedings), goals are set for specific outcomes to be achieved, whether they are affective, cognitive, or behavioral. In these applied contexts, assessment is used to evaluate the effectiveness of any program or intervention. Additionally, assessment is used to improve upon existing programs and interventions. Students will learn how to develop, conduct, and evaluate sound assessment plans, and provide recommendations based on assessment results.
