Assessment Best Practice Certification
Deepen your understanding of assessment by completing the Assessment Best Practice Certification. Participants will attend three of the assessment One-Session Wonders (below) and identify changes to their teaching practice. In these sessions, instructors will explore a variety of ways to assess student learning in courses and academic programs. A $500 stipend will be provided to selected applicants.

Fall One-Session Wonders (assessment theme)

  • Learning Expectations: How do I go about identifying criteria and standards to judge student work?
  • Course Connections: How can I create assessments that help students succeed?
  • Exploring Assessment: What options do I have for assessments in my courses?
  • Performance-Based Assessment: What is the potential of project-based learning, field-based experiences, and internships for understanding student learning?
