Every FYE class is required to participate in the assessment of the program by way of collecting and sharing student work. This assessment is meant to offer a holistic view of the FYE curriculum and the different ways in which our curricular goals are being met. We are using google slides as a platform which your students have access to through their MICA google accounts. You and your students will need to be signed into your MICA google account for this to work.
December 17: Assessment Slides Due
TBD: FYE program-wide slideshow review. Required for locus faculty; optional for Part time faculty.
We are using google slides as a platform which your students have access to through their MICA google accounts. You and your students will need to be signed into your MICA google account for this to work. Link to faculty instruction page with images.
- Follow the link to the main assessment folder.
- Once you access this folder, navigate to the sub folder for your course category.
- Find your name/assessment slide
- note that a slide has been made for you-- you do not need to make a copy/make your own as you did last year
- please do not rename the files
- Complete the title slide with your name and the name of your course
- Share the link to the slide with your students and have them complete the slides by 12/17
- Student Instruction video link
- All students in your class use THE SAME slide show-- it's collaborative and their slides will just appear one after another. The student instruction video clearly explains this.
If you or your student would like to see example from previous semesters, feel free to follow these links:
Watch the faculty instruction video //please note that these resources are for last year's assessment categories of digital or analog work. Our new categories are noted on the sample slides and new videos will be made available shortly.//

- Consider holding students accountable by allotting 5% of their grade to the completion of the slides assessment.
- Encourage consistent documentation of projects and activities. If students keep an ongoing photographic archive throughout the semester, it will be much easier to pull photos at the end for assessment.
- You will get better results if you allow for time in class to complete the task. Consider designating half a class period on the second to last day of class to assessment.
- Remind students that the written portion is low-stakes and can be casual. Encourage them to write freely and not worry about grammar or spelling.
- You are responsible for your students completing the work but are under no obligation to take their photos for them or format the slides. This should be student driven which will hopefully take the pressure off of you.
