Assessing Smart Practices
The approach of CRN is to identify new aspects and potentials in existing curricula. Thus, we apply a two-step evaluation system which we developed together with our partners in various projects.
In a first step a check-list is used, which helps the educator to understand the topical aspects of the to be assessed method. When the method qualifies for a deeper analysis, a qualitative evaluation tool is used. In this way, the educator can identify the potential but as well weaknesses of a method.
