Learning Diary Student Outcomes Assessment: Experimental Research in Education

Kwanruetai Boonyasana.

Abstract
Assessment in higher education has become increasingly important to help our students learn and achieve our teaching goals. Learning diary is an assessment where our students write an entry regarding our subject that they learned about on a specific teaching occasion. This study employs a learning diary student outcomes assessment for “International Economic Cooperation and ASEAN Trade Negotiation” classes, which is developed over a period of semester 1 in 2019, at Rajamangala University of Technology Phra Nakhon (RMUTP). The assessment in this paper has three stages: 1) defining the most important goals for our students in this subject to achieve as a result of participating in our course experience (outcomes), 2) evaluating how well our students are actually achieving those goals (assessment), and 3) using the results to improve our course experiences (closing the loop). The tool employed in this qualitative research study is a focus group interview to enable learning outcome analysis from the desired sample of 78 subjects. They are fourth-year students in the Department of Finance, Faculty of Business Administration at RMUTP. The results indicate that this assessment can show the students’ point of view from the classes for both hard and soft skills by way of their learning diary, including
external sources, for example, information or materials that our students independently found on their own, and are interested in. These display the understanding and the extent of how much the students have widened their scope of knowledge and soft skills beyond that learned in the classes. We can, then, use the results of learning diary to improve our course experiences to make sure that we (students and lecturers) can achieve the subject goals.

Key words: learning diary, learning assessment, student outcomes, experimental research.
