Building an Integrated Student Learning Outcomes Assessment for General Education: Three Case Studies
Galle, Jo K.; Galle, Jeffery
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n121 p79-87 Spr 2010
Using experiences from three institutions, the authors describe a three-stage process for designing an integrated general education program that takes into account institutional differences. The three stages are (1) establishing initial discussions that lead to alignment of key university student learning outcomes (SLOs) with key general education SLOs, (2) training and workshopping with faculty groups and administrators whose first task usually is to work with the key general education outcomes and select the appropriate measures for them, and (3) training and workshopping with faculty groups who teach the junior and senior courses that most majors take (the required courses, or courses such as senior capstones) to develop and establish course-embedded assessment in the assessment plans of the degree programs.
