Assessment Advisory Council (AAC)

Introduction


Thinqer is pioneering landmark innovations in teaching and learning processes across all programs in all schools at RK University. These innovations include introduction of active learning methods, designing participative learning experiences, using group and team learning methods, introduction of University Bridge Program, etc. Continuing the spirit of change in all aspects of the student experience, flexibility in assessment methods has been introduced in the updated Academic Regulations. Assessments methods need to be flexible to accommodate diverse teaching methods, without which, grassroots change in the student experience will not be possible. Hence, to facilitate effective modifications and updates in assessments mechanisms, an Assessment Advisory Council (AAC) has been established.

About AAC


Assessment Advisory Council (AAC) at RK University is established to promote innovative assessment methods to fulfill desired learning outcomes of the course. As the learning need of each course varies, pedagogy of teaching also varies. However, assessment methods have remained stringently same over time. We, at RKU, have recognized the need to shift the orientation of these assessment patterns to match the learning needs of the course. Valuing the important role of faculties in this process, we encourage & invite all faculties to design innovative assessment methods that would suit the pedagogy of teaching and learning needs of the students. The role of AAC is to guide all faculties to develop innovative assessment methods and approve them for actual practice. This prior screening is for maintaining & improving RK University’s academic standards, and achieving learning outcomes.

Objectives


AAC has been established:

1. To streamline the process of updating assessment methods for all courses across the university
