Assessment at UF

Assessment at the University of Florida takes many forms and engages multiple UF constituencies. Fairness and equity are central tenets that underlie the assessment process. The purpose of the UF Fairness & Assessment Guidelines is to provide guidance for the University of Florida faculty, staff, and administration to strengthen their assessment practices making them more equitable and meaningful to all students.
