One of the ways in which UW-Platteville assesses its general education program is through an online survey of its instructors. Each semester, instructors are asked to fill out an online survey that records which outcomes their courses assessed, the tools used to assess those outcomes, the results of their assessment measures, and (where appropriate) any changes they will make to their courses in order to address concerns identified by their assessment results.
The results of this survey will be used by departments and programs to demonstrate the quality of their general education courses. The results must not and will not be used to evaluate instructors. The main audiences of the survey results are internal faculty governance bodies (e.g., the Academic Planning Council and the Assessment Oversight Committee) and external accreditation organizations (e.g., the Higher Learning Commission).
