To help support undergraduate programs working to improve assessment of student learning, and university priorities for quality curriculum and instruction, ATL began offering mini-grants in 2015. WSU faculty who are involved with the development, implementation, or use of undergraduate program student learning outcomes assessment are welcome to apply for ATL’s assessment mini-grants. ATL will award assessment mini-grants of up to $500 each, to fund direct costs connected to program-level assessment.
Mini-grant projects should:
- Contribute to systematic assessment, for example, helping a program get through a bottleneck in its assessment plan, measures or data analysis, or
- Pilot an innovative approach to assessment, connected to the program’s assessment needs, or
- Provide faculty professional development in program-level learning outcomes assessment.
Funding is for direct costs, which may include equipment, materials, software or licenses, external instruments, professional development activities or resources, or costs for data collection or analysis, including wages-stipends for time slip assistance or help with logistics of an assessment activity.
Mini-grants are awarded on a rolling-basis. WSU faculty are encouraged to submit proposals as program-level assessment needs arise.
