About the Core Assessment Process at USF

To ensure and facilitate student mastery of Core Learning Outcomes, USF has developed a process for Core Assessment consistent with WASC best practices. This process utilizes rubrics developed by content experts from each of the 11 core areas. Once developed, each of these rubrics was reviewed and approved by the Core Advisory Committee. These rubrics are then used by faculty experts to rate sample student work products. 

The process of Core Assessment is overseen by the CAWG: faculty representatives from Arts, Humanities, Sciences, and Social Sciences.

Please find more information, such as current members of CAWG, rubrics used in the process, and reports on the results of Core Assessment, below.
