North Carolina State University maintains a huge site on assessment that is a valuable resource. Once you learn how to use this site, it may become a favorite for accessing information on a variety of topics.  (url:http:www2.acs.ncsu.edu/UPA/assmt/resource.htm

Topics of interest to many NDSU faculty may include:

  • Principles of Good Outcomes Assessment Practice
  • Assessment Rubrics
  • Classroom Assessment Techniques
  • Ethical Standards for Assessment
  • Glossaries: Assessment Terms
  • Grades as Outcomes Assessment
  • Knowing What Students Know: The Science and Design of Educational Assessment
  • National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) data for several universities
  • Portfolio Assessment
  • Tools to Help Organize Assessment Information
  • A huge list of assessment-related pages from several universities and much more!         

An important step in assessment may be identifying our learning objectives for our students as a step toward identifying the classroom assessment techniques (CATs) that we might use. An on-line teaching goals instrument (teaching goals inventory) is available from the University of Iowa at:
http://fm.iowa.uiowa.edu/fmi/xsl/tgi/data_entry.xsl?-db=tgi_data&-lay=Layout01&-view

After you have identified your teaching goals, you might consult Iowa State University’s link for quick descriptions of several classroom assessment techniques (CATs) at: http://www.celt.iastate.edu/teaching/cat.html

Many professional organizations provide strong support for assessment of student learning. The members of the University Assessment Committee have recommended the following link from the Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) for the direct comments about assessment: http://www.abet.org/assessment-planning-resources/

Mathematics is another discipline for which good information is available.  See the main site at:  http://www.maa.org/saum/index.html  or a collection of resources at:  http://www.maa.org/saum/maanotes49/toc.html .
