Content Creation

Using Outcomes & Rubrics for Program-Level SLA
This module will explore the use of Canvas tools for assessment of student learning at the program level. The focus is course-embedded assessment; that is, how to embed program-level assessment into assignments that faculty are using in their courses. We'll show how to create program-level outcomes and how to align these with course-level assignments. We'll look at examples from Fall 2013 where faculty used rubrics for grading and where program-level assessment data were collected across several separate courses.
