GE Area A Workgroup

Goals for Area assessment:

  • Review existing mapping data for Area and consider refinements/gaps/next steps.
  • Review outcomes and refine as necessary to ensure continued value and appropriateness.
  • Develop/refine rubric to simplify collation of data among multiple instructors.
  • Develop instructions and examples to go to all instructors of Area-assessed courses explaining how to use rubric at end of semester and reminding them that they will enter their information into reporting forms.
  • Review reporting form data 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
