General Education Learning Outcomes Assessment

The Institutional Artifact Portfolio (IAP) process for General Education assessment has been designed to help illustrate students’ acquisition of the knowledge and skills addressed in the General Education Program. Information collected from the Institutional Artifact Portfolio will provide faculty with specific data to address areas of strength and weakness of the current General Education curriculum.

General Education syllabi will be collected periodically to verify continuity with program outcomes.

Visit the University Assessment Services website to access information and forms necessary to participate in the Institutional Portfolio Process for the General Education Program.
