This two-hour workshop provides opportunities for faculty to design or refine scoring rubrics to assess student learning.
This introductory assessment workshop is the first in a series designed to support faculty in assessing student learning outcomes in their courses. Focus is on rubric development, course goal setting, and curriculum mapping. The workshop
will also highlight faculty and student benefits of using rubrics in any course format (campus, blended, online, independent study). Topics of discussion will include development, use of, problems with, and on-going refinement of rubrics
to assess student learning in multiple types of learning environments. Participants will receive resources for future use.
This 90 minute session takes you through a structured process to create course learning goals as the basis for course (re)design. The workshop includes peer sharing and collaboration as you develop or refine learning goals and student learning
outcomes for one of your own courses.
Interested in developing or redesigning course level assessments for your course? During this 90 minute session, you will review a variety of course assessment options and best practices in matching assessments to course level learning goals
and student learning outcomes. One of the goals of the session is for participants to develop an assessment to measure a course goal and student learning outcome. Bring one course outline form with you which includes course goals and student
learning outcomes, and one assignment from the course.
