The Use of Formative Assessment in Legal Education

August 13, 2015

Presented by Tommy Sangchompuphen, Associate Dean for Student Learning and Assessment, Lincoln Memorial University, Duncan School of Law

The American Bar Association has taken steps to try to improve the state of the education students receive by implementing new standards and rules for law schools. Under ABA Standard 314, law schools must now be engaged in meaningful assessment of their progress in helping students achieve outcome goals. While the Standards create considerable space for schools to develop their own assessment schemes that fit their program and their mission, each school must use both summative assessments (typically final examinations) and formative assessments, which must be integrated into the schools program to provide meaningful feedback to improve student learning. This webinar will examine the different kinds of assessments that a law school can administer using ExamSoft in order to seriously measure its success in meeting the outcomes that it has identified as appropriate to its mission.
