Curriculum Portfolio Page displays a visualization of learning development status. It tells you how far your students have come on their learning outcome development journey. Each color in the graphs presents a different level of students' learning outcome performance: red and orange are displayed when their performance is below expectation, yellow represents at expectation, and green represents above expectation.
This real-time data of learners' performance lets you continuously observe the results of learning outcome assessments across all components of your curriculum. Here are a few tips on how you can make use of our portfolio :)
1. Filter your results using Learner Batch and Aggregation method
Learner batch: The batch of students you would like LE to display. Student batches are classified based on their enrollment year.
Aggregation Method: A method you would like LE to use to populate the data. LE tell you how frequent the learner performance met or exceeded the expectations at a course learning outcome (CLO - level). By collecting the performance data at CLO-level, It's possible that the system records multiple results of the same CLO.
For example, Let's say that you have 10 CLOs in your programs (CLO-A, CLO-B, ...CLO-J) and the student name is Steve. At the beginning of the semester, Steve received level 2 from his CLO-A assessment. Two weeks later his teacher assessed him again on CLO-A, and the second time he was at level 3. The third time, he didn't do so well and his performance indicating that he was at level 2. The aggregate method is the way we pick how to represent the 3 consecutive data (2,3,2). If you choose 'MAX', we will display Steve at Level 3; however, if you choose 'Median', we will display Steve at Level 2.
Once we get 'x' value representing a performance level of 1 learner for a CLO, we then collect 'x' from all CLOs aligned to a PLO in this program and finally display the summarised view of the ratio received from all learners (from the selected Batch) per PLO in this graph.
2. Orange and Red mean they are not at the expected level 'yet'
All graphs in LE curriculum portfolio display the summary of the learners’ performance using by 5 colors. The orange and red shades tell you how often students performed below the curriculum expectations. Yellow and green shades mean that your students performed well and beyond. PLO comparison chart is also displayed on your right and Detailed performance of each PLO can be viewed by clicking 'more details'.
assuming you believe in your learning outcome's assessment quality, the greener, the better your program
Click 'more details' to drill down to the root-cause of the problem. LE allows you to 'go-deep' into the issues ranging from PLO, Sub-PLO and CLO levels.
If your graph looks too good to be true, it is probably is. Double check your learning outcome expectations and assessment method, talk to your team, and come up with data validation plan. Eg, you can use LE survey to cross check if the learners actually have achieved the expected levels as displayed in LE.
3. Their performance VS Time left
It's impossible to improve learners' performances if you have no time to do so. LE displays your learners' performance against the overall timeline of the curriculum, and so you will always see the top-view of your curriculum quality against time.
For example: if you are looking at 1st-year students, LE will show you that you will have 3 years left for learning outcome development. If they are 4th-year students with a big red shade, it may be too late to improve their performance or push the curriculum quality up.
In addition, with this timeline perspective, you can easily view the development or decay between years to make sure that your plan or adjustment from the previous year (or checkpoint) was really effective.
4. Think about an action plan.
Once you have identified the issues on curriculum performance, now it's time to start thinking about what you have to do to improve your curriculum quality. Find the Settings icon then click Create Curriculum Diary to start taking down ideas or putting in self-evaluation note and analysis of your curriculum. In addition, LEB2 allows you to create a to-do list on the action ideas you and your team can do to improve the student performance and curriculum quality.
Note: All information on Curriculum Portfolio will update automatically every time there's an assessment result in any class of your curriculum. Thus, you can access this feature to monitor curriculum status as often as you want.
