The economics faculty at EMCC collaboratively assessed our students' quantitative reasoning abilities in fall 2015, aligned with EMCC’s Quantitative Reasoning rubric. The assessment required students to place themselves in the hypothetical role of a leader of a task force appointment by the new President of the United States to recommend a strategy for eliminating the US Budget deficit within a year To complete this successfully, students needed to address all areas of the quantitative reasoning rubric. Students averages were highest on “describe the problem” and lowest on “understand the problem”, indicating difficulty with table creation. Recommendations for improvements for the next iteration include practice with inter-rater reliability among the faculty with actual student artifacts from this semester, as well as providing resources for students on how to create tables to address the weaker areas discovered this round. Please see attached report and spreadsheet for a complete analysis.
