Repositories of Evidence-Based Educational Programming & Outcome Measures

In this session, Sara Finney and Sarah Alahmadi share resources to locate and use repositories of evidence. First, they model the use of systematic review repositories to locate effective evidence-informed educational programming. Knowing where to find summarized high-quality research regarding the effectiveness of strategies, activities, and experiences across different student populations allows equity to be intentionally built into programming and assessment. Second, they provide resources to find high-quality existing measures of common student learning and development outcomes. They showcase several measurement repositories and organize them by utility. They highlight measurement repositories that not only provide the measure or rubric but also experts’ reviews of the measure’s properties. They also identify the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) student learning outcomes that are addressed by each measurement repository.
