NEW! The HEIghten® Outcomes Assessment Suite is a suite of general education assessments that are customizable to meet an institution’s needs and provide evidence of student learning outcomes. The modular suite of assessments consists of five modules that include Critical Thinking, Written Communication, Quantitative Literacy (available now), Civic Competency & Engagement and Intercultural Competency & Diversity (available in January 2018).
The ETS® Proficiency Profile is a general education outcomes assessment that measures four core skills — reading, writing, mathematics and critical thinking — in a single exam. Institutions use the assessment results to document performance for self-evaluation, strategic planning, measurement of student achievement and accreditation. Testing is available in nonproctored online and in proctored paper-and-pencil and online formats.
The SIR II™ course evaluation survey objectively captures students’ perceptions of their higher education learning experiences. It helps post-secondary schools assess the quality of instruction, reward teaching excellence and strengthen academic programs. It is available online, via ETS, and in paper-and-pencil format. The e-SIR version is designed specifically for distance-learning courses.
The Criterion service is a web-based application that evaluates a student's writing skills and, within seconds, provides diagnostic feedback and a holistic score. Students use the Criterion service to plan, write and revise essays using free online planning templates and writer’s handbooks.
