Results & Improvements

ODU uses embedded, authentic assessments in general education courses. Within each course and across courses faculty agree to assignments that align with the General Education outcomes. At the end of the academic year, faculty gather to read and rate assignments using a common rubric at an annual Assessment Summit. Faculty provide a series of actionable recommendations based on their review of the artifacts.

As appropriate, programs use the assessment results to implement changes designed to improve student learning. Programs may use results to inform faculty development efforts, promote revisions to course assignments, enhance the assessment process, and/or strengthen the student learning outcomes.
