Apply now to participate in EVALUATEUR-CURE pilot testing
EvaluateUR-CURE is a method for evaluating course-based undergraduate research experiences -- CUREs. EvaluateUR-CURE is a modification of EvaluateUR, an assessment method developed for independent student research experiences. In common with EvaluateUR, EvaluateUR-CURE has about a dozen student outcome categories, each defined by several outcome components. In order to assess student progress, each component is scored both by the student researcher and his or her faculty mentor using a five-point scale and accompanying rubric.
EvaluateUR-CURE is currently in development and the next round of pilot testing is set for the 2021-2022 academic year. Pilot testing of E-CURE is open to all faculty. Faculty teaching courses with research experiences (CUREs) at community colleges are especially encouraged to apply. A modest stipend is provided for participating in the pilot and providing feedback. This project is funded by NSF ATE #1836033.
