*The N/A category is to be used in a situation when ONE of the rubric criteria is not applicable to the chosen assessment. For example, if Identify & Explain was not part of the original assessment, then you select N/A for that row. Point totals will be adjusted accordingly when the final data is aggregated. Faculty are strongly encouraged to align assessments to the rubric. If you feel the need to select N/A for multiple criteria, then the assessment measure should be adjusted or replaced by a more appropriate one. If you need help with this process, please contact the Assessment Team: firstname.lastname@example.org .
