Assessment and the Hub

The Hub for Teaching and Learning provides resources and consultation services for faculty in relation to all aspects of assessing or evaluating student learning and growth. 

Two Types of Assessment:

  • Program Assessment is an annual process that gives programs the opportunity to choose what learning outcomes they would like to measure to promote program improvement.
  • Dearborn Discovery Core Assessment is a campus-wide assessment strategy meant to evaluate how well DDC (Gen Ed) is meeting the learning goals of all of our students. 

Both types of assessment are guided by the UCDC Assessment Subcommittee.
