Teaching, Learning, & Assessing in a Developmentally Coherent Curriculum (2008)

Author: APA Board of Educational Affairs Task Force on Strengthening the Teaching and Learning of Undergraduate Psychological Science
Description: The National Standards for the Teaching of High School Psychology (National Standards; APA, 1999) and the APA Guidelines for the Undergraduate Psychology Major (Guidelines; APA, 2007) provided guidance in designing the beginning of the academic study of psychology and establishing behavioral expectations for outcomes upon completion of undergraduate study, but they left unaddressed the elements of development that transpire between that first course and receipt of the baccalaureate degree. Accordingly, the charge of the current task force was to consider the development of the psychology student from the first course to the bachelor’s degree and to propose a set of intermediate outcomes or abilities that these students attain en route.
