Course Level: Bachelor’s Degree (First Cycle)
Mode of Delivery: Face to face
Course Coordinator : Dr. Öğr. Üyesi ATAKAN ATA
Course Lecturer(s): Assoc. Prof. SİNEM VATANARTIRAN
Recommended Optional Program Components: None
Course Objectives: The purpose of the course is to familiarize the participants with the contemporary methods and techniques in inspection and evaluation and to enable them with the necessary strategies to channel these skills into educational settings.

Learning Outcomes

The students who have succeeded in this course;
I. Students will discuss and internalize the concept of planning and evaluation. They will also get familiarize with the different types of evaluation
II. Students will learn approaches and principles in planning and evaluation within the context of education
III. Students will be able to implement institutional evaluation procedures
IV. Students will learn and implement appraisal
V. Students will get to know the qualities of the inspectors as well as develoing their interpersonal and human relations
VI. Students will discuss the importance of the concepts of motivation, institutional climate and health within the context of education

Course Content

The course will focus on three major areas that are driving the current evaluation and assessment movement in education: institutional performance; teaching and learning; and student learning and development. In so doing, this course will provide students with theoretical frameworks for understanding evaluation as well as the necessary quantitative and qualitative tools to design and provide valid and reliable empirically-based evidence. The course will also focus on how such evidence is used to evaluate and inform institutional policy as well as strategies for continuous improvement.
