This series will highlight three educational tools and how they can be applied to assessment of student learning: rubrics, concept maps, and portfolios. We will describe typical uses of each tool as well as their strengths and weaknesses. During each session, we will feature lessons learned from a DMU faculty member who has experience with the educational tool.
