The Mapmark standard setting method was adapted to a higher education setting in which faculty leaders were highly involved. Eighteen university faculty members participated in a day-long standard setting for a general education communications test. In Round 1, faculty set initial cut-scores for each of four student learning objectives. In Rounds 2 and 3, participants used a Mapmark item map to consider information from four student learning objectives at one glance and to integrate this information into a single cut-score. Participants and faculty leaders reported that the process was intuitive, and there was support for a defensible cut-score from the majority of participants and faculty leaders. Practical suggestions and implications are discussed.
