Siver, Christi; Greenfest, Seth W.; Haeg, G. Claire – Journal of Political Science Education, 2016
While the literature emphasizes the importance of teaching political science students methods skills, there currently exists little guidance for how to assess student learning over the course of their time in the major. To address this gap, we develop a model set of assessment tools that may be adopted and adapted by political science departments…
