Peer Review Process

Boise State’s process for program review, in the tradition of academic scholarship, includes peer review for Program Assessment Reports (PAR). When reports are completed and submitted teams of faculty conduct the document reviews. Reviewers, working in interdisciplinary teams, apply a standard rubric to each report and generate a response for each department. The intent is to accurately identify the strengths and weaknesses of the assessment reports and processes for our peers. Ultimately, programs will have a clearer vision of needed improvements for teaching and learning to provide an ever-better degree for our students.

Peer Training

Peer reviewer training takes place from mid March to mid April, where the training and group meetings are mandatory. The training is designed to introduce peer reviewers to the protocol for review and to conduct evaluation norming.

Reviewer Interest

We seek representation from all colleges and participation preference is given to full-time faculty.
