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:

Assessing Critical Thinking: (11:00am-12:00pm Feb 9th, 2017, Hinderaker 1127)

This workshops will discuss how you might assess students' critical thinking abilities in a disciplinary context, how you might go about designing an assignment to gather evidence of students' learning in this area and examples of how you might examine and report on that evidence. There will also be discussion of annual reporting requirements for WASC core competencies.

Funding Opportunities:

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