Assessing Student Learning Outcomes with Theses and Dissertations Workshop

March 15, 1:30pm - 2:45pm
Mānoa Campus, Kuykendall 106

Making Program Assessment Happen Workshop Series by the Assessment Office

Graduate programs have great advantages in student learning outcomes (SLO) assessment because they have ready access to many types of evidence of student achievement, namely, scholarly paper, thesis, dissertation, qualifying or comprehensive exam, and/or oral defense. However, only counting the number of students who completed each of these achievements is not sufficient in SLO assessment. This workshop will provide tools, illustrate process, and showcase best practices in using graduate students’ achievement work (e.g., theses, dissertations) to assess SLOs. This workshop is also applicable to undergraduate programs that require a thesis for degree completion. Participants will have the opportunity to practice creating assessment tools in small groups. In this workshop, you will learn

  • how to construct rubrics that can be used to evaluate theses and dissertations;
  • how to plan the process of using theses/dissertations in SLO assessment;
  • how thesis/dissertation evaluation can be integrated into regular graduation process.

Level: Beginner
Format: Demonstration + small group exercise
