  • 1. Draft Guidelines for Establishing an Assessment Methods DatabaseImportant Questions before establishing criteriaAre we considering a database for assessment methods or for assignment used in the disciplinesthat feed assessment methods?Are we considering a database for degree/program level assessment methods or for course levelassessment methods?Are we considering a database for FYE courses? (Create a Commonwealth-wide commonexperience for First Year students?)Should the database reflect the institutional level (2-year or 4-year institutions)?Should the database reflect the core Gen Ed competency in each of the AMCOA memberinstitutions? Should the database reflect an alignment of Core Gen Ed competency among themember institutions?Phase One Database Collection: Degree/Program Outcomes Assessment MethodsGeneral Criteria:AMCOA member institutions should provide degree/program level assessment methods to thecoordinator of the Assessment Methods database.The information/criteria on the Outcomes Assessment Method provided should include thefollowing:Title of the degree/programList of course in the degree/programDegree/Program Learning OutcomesElements of each institutions assessment of the successful completion of theDegree/Program Learning OutcomesTypes of metrics utilized to assess the outcomeRubrics used (if any)SWOT analysis of the Learning Outcomes for the degree/programStrength of the assessment method used in a specific degree/programSelf-explanatory but essential to identify the strengths so that other institutionsmight be able to adapt it effectively to their needsWeakness of the assessment method used in a specific degree/programEssential for both the submitting institution and for other member institutions
  • 2. Opportunities presented by the assessment method used in a specificdegree/programIn assessing both the strength and weaknesses of an assessment method,institutions can identify were outcomes assessment needs to be strengthened.Threats presented by the assessment method used in a specific degree/programQuestions posed by a particular assessment method can include such points asthe following: (1) does the assessment method accurately reflect thedegree/program outcome; (2) does the method used communicate the invalid orinauthentic information concerning the degree/program outcomes assessmentmethod?The alignment of the Outcomes Assessment method with the General EducationCore Competencies of the member institutionPhase Two Database Collection: Course-level Outcomes Assessment MethodsGeneral Criteria:AMCOA member institutions should submit discipline-specific course level outcomes assessmentmethods to the database for inclusion.Important Note: Phase Two of the Database Collection is directed more at assisting faculty in thevarious discipline were the process of developing outcomes assessment tools and methods withintheir own classrooms.The information/criteria on the Outcomes Assessment Method provided should include thefollowing:InstitutionDiscipline (for example, Mathematics)Name of the course (do not use institution-level numeric designations)Assignment for which the Outcomes Assessment Method was designed (redact allidentifying information)o Assignment for which the Outcomes Assessment Method was designedshould include the following information: Type of Assessment: summative (designed to provide anumerical grade) or formative (designed to provide anassessment of the level of student competency Principles included in the assignment: Reliability, Validity,Relevance, Transferability, Accuracy, Currency, Depth, Originality,SuccinctnessExplanation of the Outcomes Assessment Method (include any metrics, rubrics orother tools)Provide a definition for all elements of the OA method
  • 3. SWOT analysis (in other words, describe the results of the OutcomesAssessment method focused on a specific discipline and course).The alignment of the course Learning Outcomes with the General Education CoreCompetenciesAssessment Methods submitted to the Database should have the followingelements:
