UW Assessment Matrix: A Curriculum Mapping Tool

The Ellbogen Center for Teaching & Learning (ECTL) Assessment Team in collaboration with Dr. Francois Jacobs, in the College of Engineering & Applied Science, is excited to provide an opportunity to a limited number of departments/programs to pilot a Programmable Assessment Matrix that is designed for curriculum mapping and assessment tracking. 

This Matrix was developed and successfully deployed during the Construction Management's program's National Accreditation visit and has proven successful with features that can be customized for use by other departments and academic programs. 

This opportunity is being offered free during the pilot year (AY 22/23). Programs interested in participating in the pilot year of the Assessment Matrix are encouraged to contact Heather by October 1, 2022.
