Assessment Grants & Events

The Oxy Assessment Microgrant Program was created to assist faculty and staff in assessing student learning.

This program invites faculty and staff submit a proposal which demonstrates one of the key assessment factors we are examining for the year. The proposal must contain an assessment project in action or completed along with data and an action plan. Faculty and staff receive monetary rewards, incentives for students, or support staff for data analysis, for their participation in the microgrant program. The program ends with a culminating event during which faculty and staff present their projects and results to a panel of assessment leaders and receive feedback.

The application period for the 2018-2019 assessment microgrant program is now closed. We hope that you can join us for our 3rd Annual Data Day on May 14th at 12pm! A campus-wide announcement will be sent out closer to the date of the event.
