Assessment Tools

Assessment tools allows us to collect data on student learning to determine how courses or program may be made more effective. There are many technologies that can be used for exams, portfolios, capstone projects, pre-and post tests, writing, project reviews, externally reviewed performances, performance evaluations and more. Below is a list of the technologies Ferris has available and a list of other resources that can be used for assessment.
