Improving Teaching and Learning
How to write competencies and objectives (The college is creating a standardized database of what we teach, and when/where we teach it. We are communicating what we teach in terms of what we want the students to know when they finish each course. This 3 - page document explains how to write these competencies/objectives.)
Veterinary Medical Education has nine competencies that fall under accreditation Standard 11: Outcomes Assessment. This resource has the nine competencies listed along with an easy to follow table to connect course learning objectives to the different competencies along with how each objective is going to be taught and evaluated.
The Assessment Matrix can help you determine the best assessment for the type of skill or outcome you are trying to assess. Each skill has an example outcome, appropriate assessment methods, and recommended feedback or assessment tool.
Association of American College and Universities (AACU) Rubrics

There are many different items that need to go into a syllabus. CELT has created an easy to follow checklist to help you start creating your own course syllabus. It also includes Iowa State University recommended syllabus statements that you can copy and paste.
