What is an assessable artifact?

An assessable artifact is simply a graded assignment in the course that addresses one or more of the General Education Student Learning Outcomes. This must be a graded assignment to ensure that students take it seriously. And, by using assignments from the class for assessment, you, the instructor, do not have to design any other kind of assessable material. By using materials designed by faculty for assessing individual performance in the class, we also then have an artifact that can be used in program assessment.
