AIM Results: 2013-2014
The full report from 2013-2014, which includes comments from AIM team members, can be found here.
In 2013-2014, we intended to measure written communication, critical thinking (assessing both math and non-math courses), information technology, and global/cultural awareness.
We found, however, that we lacked a shared understanding for information technology, and global/cultural awareness. We also discovered that math courses needed to be assessed using a quantitative literacy rubric, not a critical thinking rubric.
At the end of the process, we were able to report the following results:
(Rubric scales ranged from 0 (no evidence) to 4 (capstone level).
Level 1 is considered the benchmark level.)
Results for the global/cultural awareness ISLO were not valid, and the information technology ISLO was not assessed due to the lack of shared understanding.
Those important insights led us to conclude that 2014-2015 would be a planning and development year for the global/cultural awareness and information technology ISLOs.
