Day of Dialogue: Accessing WASC Rubrics

At the CSU ePortfolios - Day of Dialogue last week in San Francisco, an interactive session focused on institutional assessment. Several participants commented on the high value of WASC's rubrics for making that assessment in "Educational Effectiveness Review."

The rubrics can be accessed through the WASC web site (click on menu item Document Library). Topics of these Educational Effectiveness rubrics include the Program Learning Outcomes, General Education Assessment, Capstone, Program Review, and Portfolio.

Rubric for assessing the use of portfolios for assessing program learning outcomes

Another approach to the WASC rubrics is to see how an institution organizes them within an assessment website. CalPoly's web page does it well.
