2013 Assessment Grants
During the 2012-2013 academic year, the Office of the Provost offered funding through two new initiatives to support departmental and academic programs in their efforts to conduct a program-level assessment. The program-level assessment grant funded proposals up to $5,000, and the mini-grants were funded up to $500.
Program-Level Assessment Grants were developed to support the gathering and analysis of student learning connected to program-level learning outcomes. The intent of these grants was to help departments/programs "close the loop" regarding their curriculum planning and teaching by looking at student work or other evidence of student learning across courses or an entire major in order to make use of that evidence in decisions about improvement. Additional funding to achieve new program goals will be considered upon completion of the program.
Assessment Activities Mini-Grants were developed to aid departments/programs that are making curricular or programmatic changes as a result of the assessment process.
