Assessment Planning and Reporting
Part 2: Assessment Methods and Tools
For each expected outcome currently being assessed, describe the sources of evidence that will be used to measure student success on that outcome. For Student Learning Outcomes, examples of instruments are: written reports or essays; oral performances; written exams or particular questions from a written exam; projects; video or audio clips of performances or actual performances; artwork; photographs; films; portfolios combining multiple artifacts. For Program Outcomes, examples of instruments are: graduate surveys of satisfaction, alumni surveys of satisfaction, focus group findings, lists of recruiting activities, enrollment counts, graduation counts, and counts and evaluations of internship sites.
Along with the type of evidence, include the set of criteria to be used to evaluate the quality of the work, i.e., a rubric with the dimensions to be evaluated and a scale describing the quality levels.
