Page Body

In concert with the UCORE Director and the Office of Assessment for Curricular Effectiveness (ACE), the UCORE Subcommittee for Assessment meets monthly during the regular academic year, convening in subgroups as necessary, to:

  • Advise the UCORE Director and ACE (e.g., raise questions, give advice, notice gaps, inform concerns and decisions, and provide transparency)
  • Respond to and confirm recommendations and actions from the UCORE Director, from vantages as faculty and members of various departments, schools, colleges, with representative and unique perspectives, to ensure faculty and college leadership input on recommendations and actions
  • Serve as a working group for discrete assessment tasks (e.g., pilot measures, policies and practices, curriculum recommendations), before items go to the UCORE Committee for consideration, adoption, and/or implementation
