CCE: Assessment and the Core Curriculum

The Assessment and the Core Curriculum lunch workshop aims at helping faculty members gain a better understanding of core curriculum assessment and how assessment strategies can be developed and implemented to reflect newly adopted core learning outcomes. One of the primary challenges that exist in assessment of the core curriculum is increasing the meaningfulness of this evaluation process. By providing opportunities to faculty to discuss effective assessment tools, this workshop is focused on initiating sustainable institutional change.
