Join the Building Authentic Assessments Community of Practice! 

Two faculty members discuss topic during workshopOur CTL Faculty Fellow, Serena Morales, is sharing her knowledge and experience with Authentic Assessments by facilitating a Community of Practice (COP). The Authentic Assessments COP will begin in Spring 2024, and support faculty in developing an “assessment architecture” for a Fall 2024 course. Specific work in the COP includes applying backwards design, course learning outcomes, and success criteria to build an authentic assessment and scoring rubric for one Fall 2024 course.

Working in small groups and one-on-one consultations, participants will dive deep into questions such as:

  • What do my learning outcomes mean a student should know and be able to do?

  • What do these knowledge and skills look like in the real world for students?

  • How can my assessments provide application and transition to real world tasks?

  • What type of rubric can also serve as a self-check for learning?

Please indicate your interest in participating in the COP via this Google form by Friday. December 1st.

Meeting times and dates will be determined based on availability. Expect confirmation of participation the week of December 11th, 2023. Please reach out to Serena Morales ( if you have any questions about this opportunity.

The CTL Faculty Fellows work with CTL staff to enrich the CTL’s academic community by offering their knowledge, innovative ideas, and passion for teaching and learning.  These fellowships provide Boise State faculty with opportunities to explore and experiment with pedagogical issues and strategies in a community with other instructors and with the support of CTL staff.
