FOR WHOM: Any instructor and/or administrator in virtually any content area, school, or program currently using total points and/or weighted categories in assessing student learning and interested in implementing a learner-centered, easy-to-use competency-based model of assessment into their courses.
DESCRIPTION: The Individually Recorded and Identified Skills (I.R.I.S.) model is a competency-based model designed for both instructor and student to measure and monitor the student’s understanding of each of course’s individual learning objectives at effectively any point during the course.
This packet begins with background on how the I.R.I.S. model can benefit classroom learning versus traditional total points and/or weighted categories models. It then outlines the procedures needed to implement the I.R.I.S. model alone (non-blended) as well as procedures needed to implement the I.R.I.S. model with your existing traditional total points and/or weighted categories assessment model (blended). Detailed examples, sample forms, tips, and explanations are provided.
The I.R.I.S. model is a MUST-HAVE for any instructor or administrator looking for a fresh, competency-based, and student-centered way to assess student learning.
