Harris’ Information Graphics: A Comprehensive Illustrated Reference.5 Each short module features a scenario or context (including an audience and purpose), a set of data and/or information, requirements for display, and a selection of graphical types from which the student can chose an optimal form.
By the end of the project, each of these modules will be available in the CPR Central Library. The assignments may be used “as is,” or they may be easily adapted to accommodate local circumstances.
Assessment Plan and Preliminary Results The project has an external evaluator, Dr. C. Dianne Raubenheimer, Director of Assessment at NC State University.
The evaluation plan includes the following activities:
1. Revising rubrics for assessing student’s oral and visual communication products, starting with rubrics used in the LSU and RHIT engineering programs, and building a focus on anticipated student learning outcomes.
2. Collecting baseline data, where possible, before implementation of the CPR program (using the revised rubrics).
3. Using these rubrics to collect post-CPR implementation results, on the level of achievement of various anticipated student learning outcomes.
4. Surveying student perceptions and opinions about the CPR program.
5. Conducting pre- and post-surveys of students' self-rated skill levels and self-confidence in achieving the anticipated learning outcomes relating to oral and visual communication.
6. Conducting interviews with faculty about previous and revised courses, using a common interview protocol.
7. Interviewing project administrators and CPR developers about project accomplishments.
8. Reviewing the library of field-tested assignments for completeness and representation across categories.
9. Conducting focus interviews with students in selected courses.
10. Summative faculty survey, assessing experiences with using the CPR program and how it impacted student learning.
11. Examining student CPR scores and other data gathered in the CPR system.
