Welcome to the 2024/25 Academic Year. We invite all UW instructors, administrators, and staff to take advantage of the Assessment Activities we offer. Our programming is tailored based on need and 'closing the loop' on internal assessment processes, i.e., we offer programs we feel will best meet the current needs of our campus community. We look forward to working with you this year. 




Program Curriculum Mapping Workshops

Curriculum maps will be incorporated into Program Assessment Reports on September 4, 2024 (please note - updated date reflected). In collaboration with the Office of Academic Affairs, the ECTL is offering workshops to help programs work through curriculum maps, looking at student learning outcomes (SLOs), courses offered, and mapping student learning. Some programs will be better equipped to complete curriculum maps than others, thus this session will attempt to meet programs where they are in a workshop format where many templates will be utilized.

August 8th | 1:30-2:30 pm (MST) | Coe Library 511 & Zoom

August 12th | 2:00-3:00 pm (MST) | Coe Library 511 & Zoom

Assessment Learning Community AY 2024/25 

Let's take some time to talk about assessment! Join the Assessment Learning Community for engaging conversations and to think with your peers about assessment for student learning at UW. We invite you to form teams of 2-4 people who are within your department, division, or program and join this assessment faculty learning community together. This opportunity is open to anyone on campus interested in assessment. Teams will utilize two texts (Meaningful and Manageable Program Assessment: A How-To Guide for Higher Education Faculty & Coming to Terms with Student Outcomes Assessment) and connect with the UW Assessment Coordinators throughout this experience. Expected outcomes include: develop a program assessment plan, establish or revise rubrics, create curriculum maps, and build a culture of assessment.

Application: Applications are closed for this academic year - please check in August/September 2024 for AY 2024/2025

Matrix Pilot Program

The Ellbogen Center for Teaching & Learning (ECTL) Assessment Teach in collaboration with Dr. Francois Jacobs, in the College of Engineering & Physical Sciences, will continue to develop and pilot the UW Programmable Assessment Matrix. The UW Programmable Assessment Matrix is designed for curriculum mapping and assessment tracking. 

This matrix was developed and successfully deployed during the National Accreditation visit for the Construction Management program and has proven successful with features that can be customized for use by other departments and academic programs.

We acknowledge and celebrate the UW Assessment Matrix pilot programs for their work and dedication to assessment for student learning: Honors College, ASL Certificate Program (College of Health Sciences), Gender and Women's Studies (College of Arts & Sciences), and the Master of Science in Learning, Design and Technology (College of Education).
