Techniques for Using Rubrics in Program Assessment

This workshop lets participants evaluate their programs’ learning outcomes (SLOs) related to critical thinking, problem solving, oral communication, written communication, research, or a different complex skill through the use of rubrics.

PowerPoint and Handouts

To assess these SLOs, many programs collect student work: projects, presentations, portfolios, research reports, etc. A rubric is an appropriate and useful tool to evaluate student work and determine how well students achieved the SLOs. Rubrics provide information about strengths and weaknesses that can be used for program improvement. Join us for this workshop and learn how rubrics can be used in program-level assessment

Bring your program outcomes to the workshop.
