Description

Setting learning outcomes for teaching legal research is important to ensure that the instructor has defined goals and students are aware what they need to know by the end of the class. But even more important is making sure that the instructor can adequately assess that students are meeting these outcomes. This session will cover different types of assessments that are useful for evaluating legal research competencies and using rubrics to clearly define the skills expected in an assessment to ensure they are meeting set learning outcomes.
