4. Two Models For Framing
The Assessment I-E-O model (Astin)
I = inputs (for example, students’ prior level of understanding)
E = environment (i.e., your HIP intervention)
O = outputs (for example, achievement of learning outcomes)
The main question is: Did the HIP intervention facilitate the achievement of learning outcomes given the students’ backgrounds?
