Student learning outcomes assessment in China: Primitive foundations
Abstract: This chapter outlines broad foundations being set to spur student learning outcomes assessment initiatives in China. It first reviews historical contexts and convergent forces that have promoted work on student learning outcomes. It then studies exemplary student learning outcomes assessment programs to analyse their role in Chinese higher education. Finally, the chapter explores the institutional application of student learning outcomes, taking Beijing Normal University (BNU) as an institutional case. The chapter concludes by future directions for work in this field.
