+Assessment Type Legend (use numbers in "Type")
(evidence. based on student performance, which demonstrates the learning itself)
1. Locally Developed Achievement Measures. This type of assessment generally is one that has been created by the individual faculty members, their department, the college or the university to measure specific achievement outcomes, usually identified by the department and its faculty.
2. Internal or External Expert Achievement. This type of assessment involves an expert using a pre-specified set of criteria to judge a student's knowledge, and/or disposition and/or performance.
3. Nationally Standardized Achievement Tests. These assessments are produced by an outside source, administered nationally for comparison purposes, and usually measure broad exposure to an educational experience.
4. Portfolio Analysis. A portfolio is a collection of representative student work over a period of time. A portfolio often documents a student's best work, and may include a variety of other kinds of process information (e.g., drafts of student work, student's self' assessment of their work, other students' assessments). Portfolios may be used for evaluation of a student's abilities and evidence of improvement. The portfolio can be evaluated at the end of the student's career by an independent jury or used formatively during a student's educational journey towards graduation.
5. Capstone Experience. Capstone experiences integrate knowledge, concepts, and skills associated with an entire sequence of study in a program. Evaluation of students' work is used as a means of assessing student outcomes.
6. Writing Skill Assessment. Evaluation of written language.
7. Performance Assessment. This type of assessment integrates knowledge, skills, and activity to demonstrate competence.
