Since 2016, UWG has completed an Annual Peer Review of Academic Assessment Reports. Each Spring, faculty members from across campus review all assessment reports on program-level Student Learning Outcomes. These reports are scored against the UWG Assessment Quality Rubric. The purpose of this process is to advance the assessment of student learning and to encourage the use of assessment data for continuous improvement.
Please check back in early 2019 for more information.
Two faculty representatives from each College/School came together and formed a team of 12 reviewers. These 12 reviewers were divided into four teams of three. Each team was responsible for reviewing and scoring 21 assessment reports, 7 per person. Each team came together, and collectively reviewed all 21 reports and submitted final scores. Final score reports went out to all programs, were aggregated for each College/School, and an average score was presented for the division of Academic Affairs.
Based on feedback, the Office of Institutional Effectiveness & Assessment requested one faculty member from each College/School, who had previously participated as a reviewer, to take part in an ad-hoc Rubric Review Team. These six faculties, along with the Interim Director of Assessment, reviewed the rubric and overall process for the Annual Peer Review. Revisions were made to the rubric for clarity, and updated processes were implemented.
- Two faculty members from each College/School (12 total)
- Four teams of 3 reviewers
- Teams will collectively review and score 21 assessment reports, 7 per person.
