When a course is due for review it must be
assessed by the individual faculty/departments using the procedures contained
in the resubmission forms.
These forms ask for information on the extent to
which the learning outcomes are achieved by the individual courses. The
instructor/department provides information on the relationship of the course
objectives to the general education goals, methods used to assess the course
objectives, results of the assessment, and how the results are used to improve
attainment of the course objectives by the students.
Approval of the
resubmission by the General Education Committee indicates success in meeting
the specific goals described by the department.
