Discussion Item

Assessment of Core Curriculum
At the committee’s April 17th meeting, we will discuss assessment of the core curriculum. We need to have a tangible product from SoCC that includes our recommendations for core assessment. We also need to look at the data and decide if it is giving us the information we need to make informed decisions about the core. The committee began in initial discussion regarding the scales used on the core rubrics. During this discussion, the committee recommended having conversations with core faculty during Assessment Day.

Next Meeting

The committee will meet on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, at 12 noon, in A&S 216.


The committee adjourned at 1:00 p.m.
