  • a series of practical exercises

Quizzes will also be used to assess comprehension of basic concepts, ideas and knowledge gained. 

The student end of course evaluation will assess how students feel about their own learning in each outcome. 






Exercises, quizzes and bibliography projects will be included in each course, each semester.

Student end of course evaluations will be conducted for every section taught. The two questions on the overall success of the class will be made publicly available.

Faculty will use data and comments to continually improve student learning and teaching methods. Descriptions of how assessment data was used will appear in individual Faculty Annual Reports. Selections will be summarized in the team annual report beginning Summer 2003.

Summary reports of evaluations appear in faculty professional files.

Enrollment data will be published in the instruction team annual report.
