Evaluation and Assessment

The mission of University of California at Riverside’s Office of Evaluation and Assessment is to facilitate a culture of data-driven decision making and continuous educational improvement. To that end, we design and conduct studies on the effectiveness of UCR’s undergraduate academic support programs. We also advise faculty and administrators on all aspects of the assessment process from writing learning objectives to implementing results. We provide support for iEval, the campus' online student evaluation of teaching system. Further, we provide assistance on an ad hoc basis to faculty needing help with grant proposals and other projects that have an evaluation or assessment component. Finally, we offer writing, research, and organizational support for UCR’s WASC accreditation activities. The Office of Evaluation and Assessment seeks to initiate and support data driven conversations focused on undergraduate student success. 

Workshops for Winter 2017:

Classroom Assessment Techniques: (12:30pm-2:00pm March 1st, 2017, Surge 170)

This workshop will introduce classroom assessment techniques - which are quick, in class, activities that give real time feedback on teaching and learning to instructors and students so that they can make mid-course adjustments. This workshop will feature examples of two different classroom assessment techniques, discussion from faculty who have worked with these techniques and give participants an opportunity to integrate these into a course they are planning for the spring quarter. (This workshop is offered in the spirit of sharing new ideas and is not linked to annual reporting to my office.) All are welcome (so please share with other faculty, lectures and graduate students) but an RSVP to is appreciated.

Funding Opportunities:

The Office of Evaluation and Assessment will, again, support assessment development grants. Applications are available (here) and proposals should be submitted by (close of business) March 13th. Awards decisions are anticipated in April and funding for this cycle would be available for AY17-18.
