Faculty will use the appropriate report form(s) to provide assessment data and related information about their Liberal Education Program course(s):
- Assessment data should be submitted for each course throughout the 3-year assessment schedule for the category in a manner consistent with departmental expectations (e.g., each time the course is taught, for one pre-determined semester in the 3-year schedule for the category). The goal is to have a sample size that is large enough to conduct meaningful analysis for the course.
- Faculty teaching the same course may submit combined information on one form or section-specific information on one form. This process should be specified at the department level by faculty teaching the courses.
- Assessment data and information provided on the course report form include: a brief description of the course requirement(s) that were assessed for the category SLOs (e.g., exam questions, papers, performances), an explanation of what constituted "satisfactory" responses to merit a rating of Level 1 or Level 3 (note: proficiency level depends upon the course level determined by the faculty), the assessment results, a description of potential improvements based on the results, and an explanation of how faculty in the department share assessment information about the course.
- When a form is submitted, the faculty member automatically receives a copy. Faculty can also revise the submission. Faculty may login to their UMD account to view the courses reported by category from the Completed Course Reports page on this website.
