Description/Abstract

The complexities involved in establishing rigorous assessment practices across diverse content areas with faculty of varying degrees of assessment expertise can be challenging. Florida Atlantic University’s undergraduate research initiative includes a curricular and co-curricular initiative to enhance research in courses and programs across all disciplines. Faculty engage in curricular changes to improve student learning assessed through a common rubric and co-curricular involvement through rubrics developed for our symposium and undergraduate research journal. Participants will explore tools created to facilitate curricular and co-curricular change and reporting options used to more accurately reflect the effect such an initiative has on student learning.
