Center for Assessment & Improvement of Learning
Attention: CAT and COVID-19
Given the current circumstances with COVID-19 and the closure of many campuses, we will be allowing the online administration of the CAT outside of a proctored setting. We will work with institutions to setup proctor accounts and specific blocks of time during which a student can log in and complete the CAT. If have questions about an online CAT administration, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Options for Assessing Student Learning
The CAT Instrument is designed to assess a broad range of skills that faculty across the country feel are important components of critical thinking and real world problem solving using short answer essay questions.
Regarding the circumstances of Covid-19 and varients, please see above text in the gold box.
*Students who are enrolled in online courses and/or off-campus students can now take the CAT through our connection with Examity.com. Examity is an online proctoring service that helps ensure the integrity of online testing. Click HERE for more information about Examity and how online proctoring could work for you.
