The paper describes a collaborative project undertaken by the director of the Metro State Center for Innovation (CFI) and the Industrial Design (ID) Chair to develop the assessment program for the center's curriculum. The ID program assessment process has been identified as exemplary at Metro State, and directed this work.

Using the model from a creative field for the development of the CFI assessment program honors the creative nature of entrepreneurship. This linkage directed the identification of clearly articulated student learning outcomes tied to assessment instruments, striving for an objective assessment of a creative endeavor. A curriculum map linking courses with learning outcomes and identifying a level at which those outcomes are addressed was developed and explained. The process for curricular and instructional changes reflecting assessment findings for the CFI is also discussed.
