ABSTRACT
The article discusses the selection of teaching, learning and assessment methods used to attain targeted study results in the course of curricula modifications and alterations in their design focal points and a rationale. The implementation methodology of programs developing competences highlights the importance of selecting appropriate teaching and learning methods in the process of performance and in the follow up assessment in order to determine whether targeted outcomes have been achieved. The quality of studies is determined by the degree of conformity between the targeted learning outcomes and students' academic achievements. The research aims to establish the student teaching, learning and assessment methods, which could manifest the best the students' learning outcomes on a particular subject, i.e. the acquired knowledge and the ability to apply this knowledge in practice. The fact that the issues under discussion lead to a conclusion that a teacher cannot avoid the responsibility for the decisions he/she makes in relation to student teaching and learning, enhances the significance of the problem. The research object: teaching, learning and assessment methods. The research objective: to examine the influence of teaching, learning and assessment methods on competencies developing study programs. The research methods: the analysis of scientific literature and resources, survey research and statistical and graphical data analysis. The research results have revealed that the chosen methods instilling critical thinking and decision making skills in students and encouraging them to strive for acquiring, understanding and application of knowledge, makes it possible to turn learning outcomes into students' achievements. The students' achievements are the individual competence level which is determined by assessing learning outcomes with the help of cumulative or formative assessment and by applying the assessment model based on criteria. The research reveals that 17 study methods and 8 assessment methods are being used in the study programs of social sciences in the Business and Technology Faculty of Siauliai State College . It is believed that the analysis of the students' survey results helps to determine the controversial issues in the implementation process of the study programs which lead to their improvement.
