What are assessment tools?

Assessment tools are those specifically designed to help you know more about your students' learning. As explained in the How To section of this site, these tools include learning outcomes, curriculum and course maps, and rubrics. Below we offer some examples for you to start with, some of which are in use by your fellow Hunter faculty and staff and some of which are found around the web. Please make sure, when adopting any of these tools, to give appropriate credit to its source.
