Course Development and Instructional Design #6
6. Course assignments and activities are reviewed periodically to ensure they meet online course and program learning outcomes.
Deficient Developing Accomplished Exemplary
All assignments in a course must be based on the identified Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs) for that course. Each course syllabus lists the assignments for the course and each assignment in the list is directly linked to the Course Learning Outcome(s) it addresses. All course syllabi are posted publicly on our web site. Faculty members review assignments and course learning outcomes each semester as they prepare and submit their syllabi.
All assignments are developed specifically for the online environment as the School of Information is a fully online program with no on campus classes.
Faculty members are encouraged to use rubrics to clarify assignment expectations.
Courses are reviewed according to the Curriculum Review Calendar:

Faculty training sessions in our T3 series are held on the topic of the development and use of rubrics. Rubrics have been preloaded into Canvas for easy use and adaptation by faculty members.
Available tools to discourage academic dishonesty include Turnitin (for submitted written work) and Respondus Monitor and ProctorU (for proctoring of online tests). Faculty are informed about these tools and training sessions are provided.
