What types of assignments can I use as the assessable artifact?

UK Core courses need to be designed so that at least one assignment will be used for General Education assessment. This assignment can be of many different formats: papers, speeches, posters, group project, performances, etc. These assignments should be easy to evaluate against a general rubric for the General Education Learning Outcome that the course addresses. Essentially, it is up to the faculty member to decide what type(s) of assignments best demonstrate the students’ ability to meet the General Education Learning Outcome. And, since this is a graded assignment, the student should be motivated to do his or her best work. (Please note: Assignments created in Blackboard as "Safe Assignments" cannot be used at this time. Please visit the Blackboard Support page for assitance on handling these type of assignments.)
