General Education Program:
Assessment of student learning in our General Education Program (GEP) draws upon
several measures, including institution-wide assessment and department-based
assessment. In addition to this, our GEP Assessment plan outlines the use of Course Portfolios and Faculty Learning Communities.
A full discussion of the GEP Assessment plan can be found in the "Step 6" document that was approved by Faculty Senate: Step 6 Assessment
"Course Portfolio" Workshops
Over the summer and fall, Paula DeHart will facilitate a series of workshops to support instructors offering Cultural & Environmental Awareness Level courses during Fall 2015, focusing on GEP learning outcomes and the process of assembling a Course Portfolio.

Instructors offering GEP Cultural & Environmental Awareness Level courses during Fall 2015 are required to submit an electronic Course ePortfolio by February 1, 2016.
Faculty Learning Communities
During the spring semester, Faculty Learning Communities will complete three tasks:
- Review all Course ePortfolios using a rubric.
- Provide feedback to individual instructors (note: this feedback is shared only with the instructor)
- Generate a summary report that includes aggregated results, trends, and suggestions (note: this report will not include any identifying information from the Course ePortfolios).
For the participants of the Faculty Learning Communities that will be reviewing the Course ePortfolios, please refer to the message from the General Education Committee:
