Each semester all ECN instructor at EMCC administer the ECN common final exam, a multiple choice test based on our courses learning outcomes, in addition to a course-specific final. Instructors collect the frequency distribution of student responses, and results are aggregated to look for discipline-wide strenghts and weaknesses. We then create Learning Outcomes Improvement Plans (LOIPs) to identify ways to changes in pedagogy/curriculum to address weaker areas. These LOIPs are then completed once the data is analyzed for the subsequent semester to see if student's results improved. Sometimes results don't improve, and new strategies need to be developed, and sometimes results improve greatly. For example, by using mini-whiteboards to practice the impact of changes to net exports on the economy (ECN211), students results drastically improved from 44% to 77% responses correct. Aggregated results and my LOIPs are attached.
