Assessment Notes

VASTU 101 was a new course set up in the Fall of 2008. The significance of the information below is that it shows a steady increase in overall student satisfaction from the courses conception (equaling BYU overall value) to present (surpassing BYU overall value). In-class assessment and student ratings are important tools I use in measuring and assessing specific learning outcomes. My goal is to achieve the highest standard in effective teaching, which I manage through constant assessment and application.
