OU-SECS logoAssessment Form for External Evaluators
Master's and PhD


In order to facilitate the measurement of the student outcomes, the following form-generation utility was developed. Simply provide an assignment title (including the course name and number), select the outcomes to be measured and the scale desired, and provide optional examples of the specific items that you would like the evaluator to focus on. A customized, printable form is produced that can be copied and used by external evaluators to assess student work.

Make sure that you collect copies of the student work for the evaluators to examine.
