Active Teaching, Assessment and Evaluation in
Political Science
(The ATAEPS Study)

The Active Teaching, Assessment, and Evaluation in Political Science (ATAEPS) study is the first large-scale research study examining assessment and evaluation in political science education. Existing research into political science education and the scholarship of teaching and learning in politics and international relations (PSE/SoTL-PIR) has largely focused on lesson planning and curriculum development. While instructors have a variety of evidence-based resources to draw on for course design from a lesson- and curricular-design perspective, assessment and evaluation practices are not widely disseminated.

Academic year 2022-2023 includes two phases of the study: a survey of all political science-affiliated faculty and interviews on assessment and evaluation practices.

Funding information is currently embargoed, but will be released as soon as possible.
