Curriculum Mapping Tool at UNF

Curriculum Outcomes Map is a template offered to Departments at U of North Florida. It carries with it an advisory to faculty: be selective and leave some blanks. That means there is not expectation that all courses should address all outcomes. The UNF template does look for distinctions for which courses introduce a learning outcome, which reinforce it, and which demonstrate mastery.

The mapping tool is part of UNF's web site on Assessment, which features a newsletter style approach to support, called Assessment Matters. A recent entry is on rubrics. The newsletter entry explains the basics and also links readers to the VALUE rubrics of AAC&U (previously described in this blog) and the interactive type at Rubistar (designed for K-12 but frequently included in higher ed hyperlinks to rubric resources).
