Abstract

This study investigates a sample of syllabi for educational measurement, assessment and evaluation course offered in several high-rank universities. A total of 16 syllabi from 12 countries are accessed through universities’ websites and via e-mail to course instructors. Employing a descriptive research framework, the content of available syllabi is summarized based on covered topics, required and recommended readings and student assessment strategies. A total of 35 topics were identified and listed. Findings showed that graduate level courses mainly used academic articles as reading materials whereas undergraduate level courses generally required a textbook. Assessment strategies included assignments and essays as much as midterms and final exams. Attendance and active involvement were also included in student assessment strategies. Even though based on a small sample, the findings of this review are expected to help instructors who are developing a new course.

Keywords: Assessment and evaluation course, Educational measurement, Higher-education curriculum, Syllabi review
