Up to six mini-grants will be awarded for up to $500 each for Washington State University projects addressing development, implementation or use of student learning outcomes assessment. Projects should:

* contribute to systematic assessment; for example, helping a program get through a bottleneck in its assessment plan, measures or data analysis, or

* pilot an innovative approach to assessment connected to the program’s needs, or

* provide faculty professional development in program-level learning outcomes assessment.

Funding is for direct costs, which may include equipment, materials, software or licenses, external instruments, professional development activities or resources, or data collection or analysis. This can include wages or stipends for time slip assistance or help with logistics of an assessment activity.
