Tracking Tools

It is helpful to develop a system for tracking assessment results over time.

One link to the right is to an Excel spreadsheet that already has the Bacc Core SLOs built into the fields. The spreadsheet may be particularly useful if there are multiple sections of a course or if your course covers more than one Baccalaureate Core category. Tracking examples are provided n the spreadsheet.

The other link is to a Word document that provides an example of a simple outcomes and assessment tracking system using a table format.
