Program Assessment: Processes, Propagation, and Culture Change
Stitt-Bergh, Monica; Hilgers, Thomas
Across the Disciplines, v6 spec iss Dec 2009
The authors describe their experiences assessing writing-across-the-curriculum and general education programs, paying particular attention to processes and their consequences. At the University of Hawai'i at Manoa (UHM), a relatively large research-extensive university, general education assessment activities have been designed around two goals: broadened program ownership and ongoing program improvement through increased faculty involvement. By keeping assessment "at home" and involving faculty members from across the campus in multiple assessment efforts, UHM continues to build its capacity for assessment and promotes an outcomes-guided culture that aims to improve student success.
