Metrics in the Learning Organization
A few years ago, I and Dr. Jim Marshall from San Diego State University studied how people are using learning technologies. What we found surprised us, as it will you. In the midst of other less cheery outcomes, it appeared more assessment is happening. That’s what respondents reported two years ago.
We were surprised because prior studies have found more words about evaluation than measurement activities and habits. Is it possible that things are different now, that new technologies enable more questions, more answers and more evidence-based decisions? Is this really a new era of big and small data?
We are conducting this survey to understand current evaluation practices and constraints. We will share our findings in future articles and presentations, we promise.
Please go to our survey to participate. Your responses are anonymous—and very much appreciated. Participation will take about 10 minutes and will offer some interesting things to think about.
