OER2 : Waymaker Macroeconomics

The OER Outcome-level Effectiveness Report (OER2) presents information about how well course content is working to support student learning as measured by summative assessments aligned to each outcome. This information is updated each semester. We provide this information to the community for accountability and transparency purposes, to increase the field’s understanding of where students struggle in the course, and to facilitate the collaborative continuous improvement of the open content supporting student learning in the discipline.
