Course Evaluation

The primary purpose of this chapter is to examine how classroom assessment might best be accomplished by the communication professor. Classroom assessment can be viewed on three different levels: formal procedures, informal procedures, and classroom research. This chapter gives examples of all three and how they can be used in specific communication classes. A secondary purpose of this chapter is to show the actual need for such procedures. Good classroom assessment should be the base of the assessment pyramid, not merely an afterthought.
