ASSET Rationale and
Several previous TEMPUS/ERASMUS+ projects were aimed at building capacity for HEIs to advance innovative teaching and lifelong learning. However, there has never been a project in Israel (IL) or Georgia (GE) focusing on course assessment tools. ASSET recognizes the main limitation of those former projects, namely their inability to effectively evaluate the developed and/or piloted learning environments, by means of Formative Assessment (FA). As FA is perceived as an integral part of student-centered education, the ASSET project will initially develop strategies to effectively integrate it into the practiced learning environments.
The ASSET consortium provides the knowledge and pedagogical expertise aimed at developing and piloting creative and innovative assessment tools and methods adapted to the learning environments in use, and improving the effectiveness of teaching and learning within the IL and GE HE system, thus, bridging the gap between current educational goals and outcomes of teaching, learning, and assessment processes based on the principles set out in the Bologna process.
Aligning assessment with learning outcomes
ASSET focuses on the assessment aspect of “learning-teaching-assessment” triangle to enhance education and to align assessment with learning outcomes.
Aims and Objectives
The broad aim of the of the ASSET project is to contribute to the improvement of higher education in GE and IL through the development of more flexible and more responsive Course Assessment Tools (CATs) that support curriculum development programmes and courses so as to meet graduates’ and other appropriate stakeholder needs.
In order to do so, this project will apply CATs to the innovative courses that have been developed and piloted through previous EU TEMPUS/ERASMUS+ projects.
ASSET aims at developing and using best practices of Formative Assessment tools and methods to evaluate students’ life-long learning skills in student-centred learning environments and to adjust teaching to better meet student's learning needs.
The project will include the following specific objectives:
1. Sharing and enhancing ASSET's EU experts’ good formative assessment practices conducive to the evaluation of different learning environments.
2. Organizing train-the-trainer workshops to align course assessment and learning outcomes at each partner institution with the developed CATs.
3. Piloting CATs (course assessment tools) in 2 to 4 selected courses in each IL and GE institution.
4. Disseminating best CAT practices observed on institutional and national levels.
