The University of Texas at El Paso Learning Outcomes

The Core Assessment Team (CAT) at UTEP developed an assessment plan that could embrace direct, authentic, embedded assessment methods for evaluating core objectives. These core objectives align with the Foundational Component Areas of the core curriculum as indicated by the Texas "Core Map".  As a first step in the new assessment planning process, the CAT developed UTEP-specific learning outcome statements, to align with the core objectives. This comparison, with UTEP's measurable learning outcome statements on the left, is depicted below:


In concert with the commitment to direct, authentic assessment processes outlined by LEAP Texas, the assessment plan for these outcomes involves the collection of student work embedded in courses, evaluated via common rubrics. The proposed methodology was approved by the THECB in 2014.
