EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES AND THEIR EVALUATION WITHIN HIGHER EDUCATION

M. Sirotova

University of SS. Cyril and Methodius in Trnava (SLOVAKIA)
Evaluation is part of every human activity and it largely affects its efficiency and quality. The same is also true in the process of higher education. Evaluation is used both for determining the level of those who are being educated, but also for the overall level of the educational process, its conditions and outcomes. The educational process is carried out through university teaching and evaluation is integral part of it. The university teacher in the educational process evaluates the results of the student's work, but also the results of their own work. Working methods that are used by the teacher, together with other conditions, affect the development of university students┬┤ personalities. Their educational results are dependent on the educational work of the university teacher. Inseparable part of evaluation of teaching results is verification, testing and assessment of the student performance. Verification represents a system of specific, yet varied methods, forms and means by which we may determine and test knowledge, skills and habits of students in accordance with the educational objectives. This process is influenced mostly by the teacher, his/her professional, pedagogical and psychological training and moral profile. The same is true even in the case of classification, where the university teacher states the degree of student performance through a grading system. The paper deals with possibilities of university students┬┤ learning outcomes evaluation. It questions the matter of choice of appropriate methods of assessment/evaluation of students' knowledge gained during courses and during their self-studies. It highlights the necessity to evaluate not only knowledge, but also the level of abilities and skills needed for the further study and for future job performance. At the end it provides a short overview of students' attitudes to the process of testing and evaluation.
