In 2010, Linfield College developed an assessment plan to assess their general education curriculum. The plan includes the collection of student exemplars to determine how well student learning outcomes are being achieved. According to the plan, students submit artifacts from aligned courses to demonstrate accomplishment of the learning outcomes, accompanied by reflections regarding how the selected artifacts demonstrate their achievements. After an unsuccessful attempt at using their existing LMS, Linfield implemented a portfolio-based approach. Taskstream is being used to manage the collection of student work and for rubricbased evaluation by multiple evaluators. Lessons learned will be shared including examples of rubrics, reflection prompts, performance reports by learning outcome, and curricular changes they’ve made based on the data gathered over the last four years.
