GE Area C Workgroup

Goals for Area C GEO assessment:

  • Review existing mapping data for Area C and consider refinements/gaps/next steps.
  • Review outcomes and refine as necessary to ensure continued value and appropriateness.
  • Choose SLO to be assessed this round.
  • Develop/refine rubric to simplify collation of data among multiple instructors.
  • Develop instructions and examples to go to all instructors of Area C-assessed courses explaining how to use rubric at end of semester and reminding them that they will enter their information into Aug. 31st reporting forms.
  • Review Aug. 31st reports after assessment is completed and summarize, analyze, and report on results
  • Facilitate college-wide discussion of the results and suggested next steps
  • Complete a final evaluation report on the results and the process

GEO being assessed during Spring 2013: "apply models to explain the behavior of commonly occurring phenomena."
