General Education Essential Skill Assignment Collection

To better support instructors, a sample of submitted assignments have been provided to aid in GE assignment design. Each assignment in this collection was analyzed and coded as a “highly aligned” artifact with an essential skill and its component skills. Additionally, the student artifacts produced for each of the assignments in these collections were consistently rated in the "high developing" to "proficient" range for their corresponding essential skills, which indicates a clear, detailed, and aligned assignment prompt provided by instructors. Each sample assignment includes an articulate description that can be found below to help faculty in adapting and adopting assignments that best fit their content area and affiliated GE skill. More information about the GE assessment process and content areas can be found at the UNM General Education Assessment webpage.
