Assessment

 

The AACU rubric, listed first below, is a framework to think about the knowledge, skills and perceptions or attitudes that are changed through international experience.  The next four tools are survey instruments to measure specific knowledge, perceptions, and skills.  These latter vary in what they target, although all involve self-report.  The last link includes some survey tools but toolkits for members of groups to work together on identifying the differences among them.

Provost Martha Pollack's Statement on Assessment

 
In the past several years, there has been a great deal of national discussion about the assessment of student learning in higher education. Students, their parents, public officials, and others have posed questions about the value of higher education, focusing particularly on the value added at the individual level. It is important to consider the contributions higher education makes to society as well. The University of Michigan is committed to continually improving the learning environment for our students and faculty. The University also participates in national efforts to develop effective tools for assessing student learning.
 
This University of Michigan website on the assessment of student learning provides information about assessment and evaluation activities ranging from macro-level data about student experiences to departmental materials used in select, individual courses. I hope you will find the resources available here to be useful.
