Abstract: AACU value rubrics are now found pervasively across U.S. university campuses. Their use is related to ensuring assessment of student mastery levels across an undergraduate career (four to six-years). The University of Houston-Downtown’s federal designations of Hispanic-serving and Minority-serving find the use of these assessment rubrics even more important to guide curricular changes, instructional strategies, and course and learning enhancements supported through integration of transparent technology. UHD’s Biology 1310/1312 sequence of first year courses have been designated as core curricula to the UHD general education sequence. As such, the Biology 1310 as a non-majors course has been queued to assess the teamwork/ quantitative and empirical reasoning values for the university. This paper targets how Qualtrics esurvey system can be used to bring the AACU rubrics assessment for the Biology 1310/1312 courses into the digital mainstream.
