Job Description for Assessment and Education Researcher
Assessment and education researchers are responsible for studying academic departments at an educational facility and analyzing the effectiveness of their curriculum. Their main objective is to ensure their institution is operating at the most efficient and effectual state possible.Read More...
Their first step in enabling this is understanding the outcomes that their institution aims to achieve in the classroom, in unit material, and in overall organization. From there, they must find an effective method for evaluating these outcomes by designing and implementing an assessment activity, usually done by conducting quantitative or qualitative studies. They then take these results and find a way to interpret the data. This is generally achieved by studying the correlations and relationships within the outcomes and finding a way to clearly map and communicate the outcomes for the rest of the faculty. This process of identifying, testing, and analyzing is done while reporting to many people within their organization, including staff, deans, and other members of a learning program team.
Assessment and education researchers also sometimes interact with students when assessing educational effectiveness and reporting progress to a director of research. No physical effort is required for their work, but skills in communicating, writing, and editing are important. They work regular office hours in a typical office setting. Assessment and education researchers are usually required to hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree in science or some kind field related to research, and they are sometimes additionally expected to have research experience.
