High Impact Practices (HIPs)


HIPs Rubric

Faculty and instructors assess student learning in the High Impact Practice project or reflection assignment using this rubric. Use of the rubric in HIPs courses is expected.

How to use the Rubric

Instructors could mirror the wording in the rubric when designing the reflective assignment or when discussing the connections between course material and the HIPs assignment/project with students. The rubric is not designed for grading purposes, but an assessment and tracking of HIPs student learning.

HIPs Learning Outcomes

The rubric addresses the Eight Key Elements of High Impact Practices:

  • Challenge and Time (category 1)
  • Interactive and Diversity (category 2)
  • Feedback and Reflection (category 3)
  • Real World and Public (category 4)
