This evidence-based presentation will discuss the development of a faculty educational program to promote effective use of standardized analytic rubrics for student assessment in nursing courses. The program development is based on our findings from a previous research study regarding faculty perceptions about the use of standardized assessment tools. This study involved faculty participants across thirteen campuses of a prelicensure baccalaureate nursing program from various regions of the United States. Systematic assessments were evaluated for pedagological advantages to improve teaching-learning practices in the nursing program. The goals of the faculty educational program related to the use of standardized analytical rubrics include: (a) enhancing teaching effectiveness, (b) promoting an objective and reliable basis for student performance assessment, and (c) developing an efficient grading process. Faculty enrichment regarding the effective use of assessment tools fosters internal consistency within the nursing program’s curriculum to support overall program assessment.
