Lloyd Brooks’ Work on Assessment Featured in Tennessee State Department of Education Newsletter

For release:  April 14, 2011

Lloyd Brooks, Director of Assessment, was invited by the Tennessee State Department of Education to serve as Featured Guest Writer for the Assistant Commissioner’s Column for the 2011 Spring Quarterly Newsletter that is distributed throughout Tennessee and across the country. The article compares assessment procedures mandated for all Career and Technical Education programs by Congress in the Federal Carl Perkins Act and the assessment of learning process utilized to meet AACSB AOL accreditation standards by the Fogelman College.

The article emphasizes that the mandate from the Federal Carl Perkins Act provided the initial stimulus for developing the assessment Rubric being used in Tennessee, but the true value is derived from the improvement in learning that results from the AOL process.  The article further points out that an assessment of learning culture will result when CTE instructors and administrators accept the Rubric as an ordinary and necessary part of their jobs—just like assigning grades, maintaining attendance reports, monitoring budgets, and so forth.  The basis of the article builds on the outstanding assessment of learning process being provided by faculty in the Fogelman College.
