Writing learning outcomes

Select language that aligns with your expectations for student learning. While not the end-all, be-all, the revised Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives provides a good framework from which to get curious about the language you use to describe your expectations for student behaviors, performances, and / or habits of mind.    

Checklists, scoring guides, and rubrics (oh, my!)

A well-crafted rubric promotes equity and the development of students' metacognitive awareness. Oh, and it also can speed up the grading process while generating valid and actionable learning outcomes assessment data. The same goes for intentionally-designed checklists and scoring guides. Choose the right tool for your task to ensure efficiency and equity.

The American Association of Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) VALUE Rubrics provide an excellent starting point for creating rubrics.

To survey or not to survey?

Surveys can play a vital role in gathering direct and indirect evidence of learning. (Resource in development; check back, please!)
