EVALUATION AND ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT LEARNING IN ETCS

P. Pavlásek

University of Žilina (SLOVAKIA)
This article deals with University of Zilina, Slovakia team experiences with Student Learning mobility programmes and European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) environment. The ECTS courses design, evaluation and assessment we are about to present in this article are designed to equip students with variety of effective tools and information that they will need to be a flexible part of the total EU marketplace, and help to ensure that learning content is consistent, and consistently excellent.
The article describes faculty team’s goals in learning content evaluation and assessment: be successful in developing strategic relationships and deliver quality services to education. Every action we take in ECTS mobility is focused on contributing to the success of students’ competencies and for consistently going beyond learning content boundaries. We describe this vision that absorbs all the competencies that follows in one specific subject in Electrical Engineering educational study programme (Automatic Control Engineering).
Presented value we can bring cumulatively in this article is based on the new approach by integrating the hundreds of critical learning points combine to make up the total students learning experiences, defining learning competencies (who we are - summary of target competencies), specific learning content (why there are differences in mechanical, electrical, and computer parts), and our vision of what we do (content synergy), and how we do it (methodology – modelling, simulation, application). Understanding this, and getting critical learning points interactions right the first time, is key to student’s success (based on the ECTS evaluation criteria).
Presented modular learning content we developed is focused on the strategic imperatives at University of Zilina, Slovakia, and the areas in the-state-of-the-art where we felt we could add the most value in understanding consistently and strategically across the academic boundaries.
