Building A Sustainable Outlines Assessment Process

Six years ago we started to build a college wide automated direct measures outcomes assessment process. Each program identified which junior and senior courses would be responsible for measuring each outcome. Care was taken to limit the number of outcomes assessed by each course. Instructors were required to upload a pdf of the metric they used to measure the outcome along with a paragraph explaining why it was an excellent measure. They also uploaded a spreadsheet with a student identifier and metric score normalized to 100 for each student in the class (permits disaggregation). Data is collected every term. 12 programs have adopted our Google Forms based data collection system and our results are compiled using Tableau. Faculty adoption and compliance has been remarkable and we have data for more than 7,000 students across all of our programs. We will present the results in a live demonstration as if we were presenting our results to our faculty.
