This is a video summary of the progress to date and individual plans for the Assessment of CUREs Working Group as part of 2020 BIOME Institute. Our group was interested in examining:
How can we equitably assess UREs across courses, disciplines, and levels? Can we assess CUREs by the same metrics as independent research? Can UREs be used to assess core competencies like critical thinking, communication, etc.?
- Discuss common learning outcomes across programs/disciplines
- Review published assessment instruments for potential use in our programs
- Discuss and review different courses and draft plans for assessment
