Assessment


All General Education classes are assessed according to the learning outcomes established by the different disciplines. As well as assessing Honors Program outcomes, we also assess our Gen Ed classes with university wide learning outcomes, just like classes within departments.

Honors faculty will find a spreadsheet below for the different disciplines (CA, HU, LS, PS, and SS). As the class teacher, faculty are responsible for completing the spreadsheet and returning it to us electronically, with appropriate artifacts.  For help or assistance submitting artifacts, please contact Aubrey Jenkins Lord.  The completed spreadsheet and artifacts are due at the end of each semester. This is not an optional form of assessment; it's required of any of us teaching Gen Ed classes, Honors included.

We will continue to gather data specific to the Honors Program, using the Honors Program learning outcomes listed on each discipline-specific spreadsheet. Towards the end of the semester, an Honors staff person will contact faculty to set up a time when we can conduct Honors Program assessments. Why on paper and in class? Because we've found that we gather more complete information when we have a captive audience.

When we come to the class, we'll give the following two assessment pieces to students:

Student Course Assessment—This form is based on Honors Program learning outcomes and assesses what students learned in the class.

Student Program Assessment—This form assesses the students’ experience of the Honors Program, not the course.
We will also give Honors faculty the following form to complete, as we're interested in teacher feedback on the class and the Honors Program.

Faculty Course Assessment

After grades have been posted, we send Honors faculty a copy of the students' comments.
