GLO Assessment Requirements and Procedures

Assessment Requirements and Procedures

In order to identify how these courses impact the development of our students’ global learning competency, it is of great importance to collect products of student learning from most GLO Attributed courses. Therefore, faculty members of these classes will be contacted by the Office of the QEP requesting an artifact(s) from specific students. FACULTY  PROVIDE SPECIFIC STUDENT ARTIFACTS. This work should give evidence of fulfillment of the learning outcome(s) of the given course. To simplify the process, the students’ names will be randomly chosen by the Office of Institutional Research, Assessment and Planning and provided to the Office of the QEP for this purpose. Names and other identifying factors will not be made available to evaluators nor will they be reported in the final annual report. It is imperative to understand that the goal is not to assess the instructor’s work, their class, or the success of the course; it is to assess the successfulness of each outcome at the university level.  Student work can be submitted to the Office of the QEP by email or may be collected in person.
 
The artifacts will be assessed by a group of trained peers using the Assessment Rubrics that are located starting on page 60 of the QEP report - http://qep.appstate.edu/sites/qep.appstate.edu/files/QEP-report-final_0.pdf.
