Most higher education institutions use standardized tests/published instruments to measure the attainment of their general education outcomes. Course embedded assessment hold promise as an effective model to engage faculty in general education assessment. It provides unique opportunities for faculty professional development as they engage in the revision and development of assignments that closely align with scoring rubrics. Engaging faculty in the General Education assessment process broadens their understanding and interpretation of assessment results. This session will discuss institutional strategies and processes used to engage faculty in general education assessment which include: adaptation and use of existing rubrics such as the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC & U) rubrics, revision and development of assignments to align with scoring rubrics, calibration training to reach consensus about rubric criteria and levels of achievement to ensure inter-rater reliability.
