Featured Website: University of Rhode Island
The University of Rhode Island’s Student Learning, Outcomes Assessment and Accreditation website provides a wealth of assessment information and supporting documents. The site presents student learning outcomes and materials for program assessment at the undergraduate and graduate levels, including downloadable reporting forms and rubrics for undergraduate and graduate programs. Also included are resources for creating and using curriculum maps, and the site’s Academic Program Assessment Report Summaries allow website visitors to look across departments to view summaries of program assessment reports including evidence sources, involvement in various groups in interpreting the evidence, and changes made from discussions.
The site also offers a reference guide featuring answers to frequently asked questions; details on general education assessment at URI; links to internal and external assessment resources; guidelines for writing assessment reports; links to various assessment conferences and webinars; and winners of assessment mini-grants. Due to its abundance of assessment resources, URI’s Student Learning, Outcomes Assessment and Accreditation website is this month’s featured website in the category of Centralized Assessment Repository.
