RUBRIC DEVELOPMENT

A rubric is a tool to assist faculty in the evaluation of student work. By describing clearly the task expected, articulating the elements or dimensions the work should include, and defining the level of proficiency expected for each dimension, a rubric simplifies the evaluation process, increases consistency of evaluation across faculty, and permits more precise identification of the strengths and weaknesses of students. The following links are helpful resources to begin learning about rubric design.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Every degree program at the University of Redlands defines the expected learning outcomes for their program of study. Programs revising their outcomes should consult with the Educational Assessment Committee (EAC). Some useful guidelines for developing outcomes may be found here. Program learning outcomes must be deemed by the EAC to be at or above the "emerging" level for the "Comprehensive List" and "Assessable Outcomes" standards of the WASC Program Learning Outcome Rubric.  

CURRICULUM MAPS

Each degree program should create a map of all courses required to complete the degree demonstrating where learning outcomes are demonstrated by students at variousl levels of mastery. Curriculum maps must be deemed by the EAC to be at or above the "emerging" level for the "Alignment" standard of the WASC Program Learning Outcome Rubric.  

The EAC has produced the following documents for programs to use as they develop and update their curriculum maps:
