Abstract Title: Aligning Grades to Learning Outcomes for Introductory Physics for Life Sciences
Abstract: The Introductory Physics for Life Science (IPLS) course is one of eight courses, of diverse disciplines, at Mercy College to be part of a study to investigate a new assessment paradigm where student feedback throughout the course, as well as final course grades, will be given explicitly in terms of competency of learning outcomes, through a rubric developed to assess competency in those learning outcomes.  In this way, all grades will be directly aligned with learning outcomes. Not only will faculty have direct assessment evidence of student learning, but students will have a greater clarity of what learning is expected of them and of their progress in achieving the learning outcomes.  The first of two phases has been completed and will be presented.
