Assessment of Student Learning Grants are available now! Let the Office of Assessment help you, the faculty, in your efforts to assess student learning. These $500 grants, which are available on a rolling basis, may be used for many different types of projects. For example, eligible projects include developing or revising student learning outcomes in the major, supporting focus groups with students to ask questions related to program learning outcomes, incentivizing faculty for the extra work involved in assessment, or comparing student learning in online and seated classes.
Some examples of recent grants include Aligning Student Learning in Plant and Animal Sciences with Industry Expectations, Dr. Beth Walker and Dr. Sarah Lancaster, College of Agriculture; Utilizing New Technology to Improve Writing Quality in Online Sociology Courses, Dr. David Rohall, Sociology and Anthropology Department; and Program Assessment through a Student Advisory Committee, Dr. Stephen Berkwitz, Religious Studies Department.
Applying for an Assessment of Student Learning Grant is simple. Visit our website and fill out the proposal form online.
