Student Achievement Assessment Committee
Best of 2000, Assessment Highlights
This is the third year in which the review subcommittees have selected Annual Assessment Reports for posting on the committee's web site. We do this to recognize departments and programs who have done a particularly good job of specifying learning outcomes, collecting assessment information, analyzing and interpreting it, taking action based on the findings, or all of the above.
For the 2000-2001 academic year, all departmental and program reports will be posted. We are proud of the progress that has been made, and want to share it widely.
Computer Science The Computer Science department has implemented mid-course and examination survey assessments, and continues to assess for curriculum development. New curriculum design recommendations are expected soon from a national association.
Cooperative Education The Cooperative Education and Internship Program works closely with academic departments and employers to provide experiences for students that call for integrated application of the knowledge and skills gained in classrooms.
English The Department of English has an unusually comprehensive set of responsibilities, and the report well covers both undergraduate and graduate programs.
Mathematics and Statistics Like the English report, the Mathematics and Statistics report covers both undergraduate and graduate programs. It also covers writing in math courses.
Medical Technology The Department of Medical Technology entertained external accreditation visitors, and integrated the documentation needed for national accreditation with the program assessment needs here at BGSU.
Popular Culture The Department of Popular Culture has laid the groundwork for cumulative portfolios in which student development can be traced. Assessment is firmly embedded in courses, with essay questions showing proficiency related to departmental learning outcomes.
Women's Studies The Women's Studies Program reports on portfolios, an action project as an entry point to internships, and a capstone assignment.
