Good afternoon!

The Assessment Steering Committee met over the summer and evaluated the meta-assessment rubric used to evaluate assessment reports at the institutional level.  We have made improvement in a few areas.

Please find attached the revised meta-assessment rubric that will be used to score assessment reports beginning 2018-2019.  Note these changes in the rubric this year:

  *   Overall points assigned for an “Advanced” rating have been updated to 19-20 from 18-20,
  *   Criteria changes in each category reflect well-defined expectations of report writing,
  *   The “Beginning” (yellow) rating has been renamed “Unsatisfactory,”
  *   Explicit guidelines for the reporting of outcomes on extended cycle has been added, and
  *   Uniform language now reflects that of existing templates in the Planning module.

Once you have the opportunity to review the revised rubric, please do not hesitate to call or write with any questions, comments, or concerns.
