Presentations of Web-Based Assessment of Student Learning Applications

The OEAE is always striving to help professors in the analysis of student learning assessment data. In collaboration with Dr. Carlos Corrada of the Computer Science program the idea of creating a web-based application for analyzing assessment data came about.

At the beginning of the 2012-2013 second semester the OEAE was established as the client for which two groups of students of the Development of  Web-Based Applications (MATE 4996) course had to develop the tailor-made application. The OEAE needed an application with a user-friendly interface to input and analyze data in order to streamline the process of assessment of student learning.

On May 14 the students form the Development of  Web-Based Applications (MATE 4996) course presented their applications for the assessment of student learning to the OEAE staff and the assessment coordinators from various Colleges of the campus.

The following are screenshots of the home screen of both applications:

Group 1:

Group 2:

During the first semester of the 2013-2014 academic year some professors have volunteered to use the application as part of their courses. Once their recommendations have been submitted and discussed, we expect to update some features after the end of this trial period. If institutional support is provided, the use of the application will be expanded to more users across our campus.

We couldn't be happier with the work that the students did. We are confident that this initiative will help professors to analyze student learning assessment data, thus aiding the OEAE to have a real-time snapshot of the achievement of institutional student-centered learning outcomes.

A Web-based Assessment of Student Learning App: A collaborative effort in the making

As part of the current academic offering at the Computer Science Program, Dr. Carlos Corrada is teaching the course Development of web-based applications, an upper level undergraduate independent seminar course (MATE 4996) with a strong hands-on approach. One of its objectives is to prepare students to develop a tailor-made app for a client. The course is divided into two teams that will compete to meet the clients’ need. By the end of the semester both groups will present their proposals for an app and the client will ultimately choose which one best suits its needs.

The Office of Evaluation of Student Learning  (OEAE) has been established as the client, and students will develop a web-based assessment of student learning app. This effort is the result of a series of conversations between the OEAE and two professors of the Computer Sciences Department, Dr. Ivelisse Rubio and Dr. Carlos Corrada, about the need to develop an application in order to provide professors with an easy to use interface that helps them analyze, share, and track assessment of student learning in their courses. Said app will provide the OEAE with an overall and continuously updated view of the process.

We are enthusiastic about this project and grateful that we can share this experience with these students. We will keep this post updated as milestones are achieved during this period.

The Puerto Rican Congress on Research in Education originated in 1987 as a result of the initiative of several professors from the Department of Graduate Studies and the Educational Research Center, College of Education at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus. Since its beginning, it has been committed to disseminate research in the College of Education, the country and the Caribbean region, in order to contribute to the Puerto Rican education.
Over the years, this Congress has become one of the core activities of the Educational Research Center and the College of Education, while it has continued to expand its reach to the Puerto Rican educational environment. In addition of being a forum for research conducted in Puerto Rico, the Congress provides a space for the exchange of ideas with guests from Latin America, the United States, the Caribbean region, Europe, and other countries around the world.
In the past, the Congress has been co-sponsored by several entities, among them the Chancellor’s Office of UPR- Rio Piedras Campus, the Office of the President of the University of Puerto Rico, the Dean of Academic Affairs, the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research of the UPR, and the Puerto Rico’s Council of Higher Education.
