Inspiring Ideas for the Teaching & Learning of Law
The Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA) offers an authentic approach to the improvement of teaching and learning in higher education through a continuous improvement model, and recognizes faculty as central actors in educational improvement efforts. The CLA assists faculty, department chairs, school administrators and others interested in programmatic change to improve teaching and learning, particularly with respect to strengthening higher order skills.

SURVEY TOOL: ASSESSMENT IN THE LAW SCHOOL - CONTEMPORARY APPROACHES OF AUSTRALIAN PROPERTY LAW TEACHERS
by Kate Galloway, Penny Carruthers, and Natalie Skead (see pgs 13-14 for actual survey tool)
The importance of assessment in higher education cannot be overstated.
However, there are a number of Australian property law teachers who see the potential of a diverse range of assessments but feel constrained in their ability to implement such change.
The authors administered an anonymous online survey of property law teachers in all Australian law schools seeking information about assessment practices.
NOTE: This survey may be useful to you / your organization in identifying where your faculty are in their use of assessment.
