Assessment Mapping

Starting in 2021, assessment mapping will be required for new program applications and programs going through APR. Assessment mapping is a visual representation of the relationship between the a program's learning outcomes and the courses/curriculum. UOEEE only asks for a single level assessment map that demonstrates the relationship between the program's learning outcomes and how they are addressed within a programs curriculum.

One of the main benefits of assessment mapping is clarity of purpose. Mapping and measuring the development of specific competencies throughout the curriculum allows program leaders, faculty, and administrators to take an objective look at the program's learning outcomes and help to articulate what students are expected to learn through the program.

Assessment mapping is completed within the UOEEE assessment portal, and programs are expected to map out where outcome competencies are introduced, reinforced, and mastered. No other information or materials are required. For further guidance on assessment mapping, including how to complete an assessment map within the portal and how to download the assessment map, visit the Assessment Mapping section of the UOEEE Handbook.

The characteristics of each developmental stage is as follows:

  • Introduced - Students are not expected to be familiar with the content or skill at the collegiate or graduate level. Instruction and learning activities focus on basic knowledge, skills, and/or competencies, and entry level complexity.
  • Reinforced - Students are expected to possess a strong foundation in the knowledge, skill, or competency at the collegiate or graduate level. Instructional and learning activities continue to build upon previous competencies and increased complexity.
  • Mastery - Students are expected to possess a mastery level of knowledge, skill, or competency at the collegiate or graduate level. Instructional and learning activities continue to build upon previous competencies and increased complexity.
