Within the scope of the in-service training programme for Arkın Creative Arts and Design University’s (ARUCAD) academicians, “Assessment and Evaluation” training was carried out by faculty member of İzmir University of Economics, Prof. Dr. İlgi Şemin.
In the training organised by ARUCAD Quality Assurance Agency, Prof. Dr. İlgi Şemin made a presentation on assessment and evaluation of the knowledge and skills of students by using assessment and evaluation methods, techniques and tools. Emphasising, in particular, the criteria of assessment and evaluation in education, Prof. Dr. İlgi Şemin said, “Assessment and evaluation is an important element of the education process. It take care to measure and evaluate performance in an egalitarian, impartial and systematic manner. With the result we obtain from these evaluations, we have information about the level that students have reached in the education process and about the areas where education has succeeded or failed. It provides faculty and students the opportunity to evaluate the process and see its repercussions.” Prof. Dr. İlgi Şemin stated that correct assessment and evaluation played a major role in improving the quality of education and, accordingly, in the planning of the national and international accreditation processes of programmes.
After the theoretical part of the training, an applied section was initiated, after which the training ended with a general evaluation.
