Question Description

A required assignment (RA) is a substantive assessment intended to measure student performance against selected course objectives and program outcomes within a course. RAs are completed by all students across all Argosy University campuses and delivery formats without exception. Each RA contributes to a significant portion of the overall course grade and is assessed by the instructor using the rubric designed for that assessment. These are individual assignments, and students earn individual grades. RAs are not intended to assess students on every topic covered in the course—just on the key course objectives and program outcomes.
