Are students learning and retaining what we are teaching? Assessing the use of information technology

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This research paper focuses on how an undergraduate program at an AACSB-accredited business school will be incorporating assessment on the use of information technology in the curriculum. To meet the new AACSB standards regarding assessment and adequately determine "if and what students are learning?", this research presents the technology learning goals, the associated learning objectives and the specific technology-related behaviors and actions that are assessed. This paper presents the motivation for an assessment program, how the assessment will be implemented, and at what point in the undergraduate program will the assessment be incorporated. A related instructional module that will be used to assist students who do not satisfy the assessment requirements is described, as well as, a pilot study to test the measurement instruments.
