Mini-grants are not currently available at this time.
As of spring 2008, approximately $9,400 has been given to academic units to assist with assessment-related activities. For example:
- The Department of English and Linguistics used the mini-grant to provide stipend for part-time faculty who helped to evaluate a sample of research papers collected from general education writing courses. The results of the evaluation have already been submitted and are now part of the department’s discussion for curricular change.
- The Department of Consumer and Family Science (CFS) is currently using the mini-grant funds to support a student worker to do data entry. CFS is conducting a needs assessment to determine students’ needs regarding the scheduling and sequencing of courses.
- The Department of Communication used mini-grant funds to support departmental assessment committee members to travel to the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Assessment Conference. This resulted in significant revisions to the department’s assessment plan.
- The Department of Psychology used the min-grant to fund a temporary staff to assist with compiling data collected from a survey of majors and alumni. This data played a major part in the department’s program review, and led to revisions in their assessment plan as well as curricular changes.
