                                      course of the Biology Department. It aims to
                                      enhance students' learning of modern genetics
                                      using computational biology, so that they can apply
                                      the concepts of modern genetics in understanding
                                      biology globally. In addition, we aim to develop
                                      students' skills in communicating their knowledge
                                      with the general public so that science education
                                      can be extended beyond the campus.

                                      addressed in the Academic Learning Compact and
                                      the Quality Enhancement Program. The
                                      assessment procedure will measure the student's
                                      ability to develop a proposal, identify resources,
                                      plan and implement a project, and to present the
                                      project to a faculty member for assessment. It will
                                      increase student accountability, provide
                                      opportunities for direct and cognitive assessments
                                      and support alternative methods of teaching and
                                      learning.

                                     administering an appropriate assessment of
                                     project management skills is a critical aspect for
                                     both UWF and the College of Business in the
                                     development and inclusion of project management
                                     materials in the curriculum.
                                       Although project management skills are critical to
                                     the successful completion of the simulation, there
                                     currently is no specific assessment of this aspect
                                     of the simulation. Funding of this proposal will
                                     lead to the development and administration of an
                                     assessment rubric specifically designed to capture
                                     project management knowledge and proficiency.
                                     The results will be directly applicable to modifying
                                     the overall COB curriculum to improve project
                                     management skills.
