Instruments for the evaluation of educational processes ILV

Lector: Mag.a Dr.in Maria Fürstaller

1SWS
2ECTS

Lecture contents

As part of the course, a basic understanding of what evaluation research is concerned with, what its objectives are, what methodological methods can be used in evaluation research and the steps along which an evaluation project is carried out should be developed. This basic understanding should be helpful in order to be able to deal with the evaluation of educational processes. The following questions will concern us:
- Which challenges are associated with the evaluation of the complex subject area "educational processes" and which research methodological consequences are associated with it?
- What are the appropriate forms and procedures for evaluating educational processes?
- How can an evaluation study - from planning, implementation, evaluation to documentation of results - be designed for (early) educational processes?
- What significance can evaluation studies and their results have for educational work and how can they be used from the point of view of quality assurance / quality development?

Assessment methods
