Assessing experiential entrepreneurship education: Key insights from five methods in use at a Venture Creation Program
Kapitel i bok, 2018
Experiential education continues to be challenged around student assessment. This chapter brings insights from the field of entrepreneurship education to experiential education assessment. Contributions from assessment practice in action-based entrepreneurship education are presented in regards to five established assessment methods in experiential education: performance assessment, reflective assessment, peer/self-assessment, e-assessment and constructive alignment. The chapter analyses how these methods are applied in a venture creation program (VCP), where the key learning vessel is creation of a real-life venture. In VCPs, students experience an emotional roller-coaster, impacting learning well beyond cognitive development. Assessment related insights from the VCP are generalized into experiential education. Contributions include a new model for emotional activity based performance assessment, emphasis on constructive alignment and recommendations for IT based reflective and peer assessment.
