Program Assessment Instruments

Prior to the 2009 workshop on Assessing Geoscience Programs: Theory and Practice, we asked workshop participants to share instruments their departments use to assess their programs, along with information on the design, use and impact of the instruments. Their contributions are below. If you would like to contribute an assessment instrument to this collection, please use the assessment instrument upload form.

Alumni Surveys

Several participants (Dirk Baron, Nelson Ham, Cathy Summa, and Leila Gonzales) at the 2009 workshop on Assessing Geoscience Programs compiled questions from many different geoscience departments into this megalist of Alumni Survey Questions (Excel 25kB Feb24 09), organized by topic.

Student Surveys and Exit Interviews

Several participants (Bill Hart, George Kipphut, Al McGrew, and LeeAnn Srogi) at the 2009 workshop on Assessing Geoscience Programs sorted questions from many different geoscience departments to construct this list of Categories of Questions for Exit Surveys (Microsoft Word 49kB May13 09).

Other Surveys

Course Evaluations

Rubrics for Assessing Student Work

Several participants (Arlo Weil, Cam Davidson, Char Mehrtens, Karen Viskupic) at the 2009 workshop on Assessing Geoscience Programs developed this Rubric for Evaluating Capstone Experiences (Microsoft Word 51kB Feb24 09).

Student Portfolios

Performance Exams
