Assessment Toolbox:Embedded Assessments


Course-Embedded Assessment is a type of assessment used within a course to assess student learning for both individuals and groups. It can take place in a class or a group of classes, and it can determine whether students are learning pre-established learning outcomes, or take advantage of pre-existing student motivation to perform well, and essentially assess what is being taught.



Why Course-Embedded Assessment Is Used:


Individual Instructor

  1. Improve learning in a course

  2. Assess learning in a course with multiple sections

Assessment Director with Instructors

  1. Assess learning that crosses discipline boundaries, e.g. general education outcomes

  2. Assess learning in a discipline and assess various learning competencies
