The Office of Educational Effectiveness Assessment (EEA) conducts surveys to measure satisfaction with our resources and support for assessment initiatives. Here we feature survey results and how the results are used to guide our work.
The General Education Satisfaction Survey is administered to faculty participating in general education assessment. The following key findings were identified:
Rubrics can be powerful instruments for understanding and improving student learning. Evidence suggests that sharing rubrics with students prior to beginning an assignment clarifies the expectations for A+ work and provides students guidance as they work through an assignment from start to finish. Students expect this type of guidance to come from their instructor. Are there benefits to having students play a role in determining the academic expectations? Professor Andrew Perry from the University Writing Program believes there are.
The most recent results from EEA’s key assessment initiatives are available on our website. General Education Assessment results and use of results to improve student learning can now be viewed by Student Learning Outcome. RIT’s sixteen outcome-specific rubrics are available for use by the RIT community in addition to the General Education Assignment Library, which features sample assignments used to assess the General Education Student Learning Outcomes.
