ICaP Assessment

Welcome to ICaP Assessment! Our goal with these web pages is to share information concerning our assessment projects with our instructors as well as any visitors to our site. We have built a community around assessment, so we intend to continue to be more transparent about our assessment practices in these web pages.

We have updated our portfolio materials for instructors.

We have three current pages to this website: The Portfolio Common Assignment, The Purpose of Reflection, and the History of ICaP Assessment. Below, you will find a list of our current assessment reports for your convenience; however, these are also linked within the web pages linked above.

Questions can be directed to ICaP Staff at

Assessment Committee

The Assessment Committee is committed to creating visibility to scholarly-grounded assessment practices through instructor and website resources, norm, read, and rate sessions, and professional development opportunities. Additionally, the committee is dedicated to making sure assessment is data driven, collaborative, transparent, and influenced by current writing assessment and social justice scholarship.

If you would like to join the Assessment Committee, please contact ICaP Staff.
