Method of Assessment
In the assessment year for Basic Research, each major department will collect data from the course or course(s) in which majors must demonstrate proficiency in basic research.
Data may be collected in either the fall or the spring semester, or both. Student work must be evaluated using the Basic Research rubric. Department Assessment Coordinators are responsible for reporting the number of students who exceed, meet, are approaching, or do not meet each of the outcomes.
