General Education Assessment
The General Education Guidelines [pdf] require that General Education courses be assessed to measure if students are meeting the GE learning outcomes (per University Policy S09-2 [pdf]). The General Education Program has three program goals and nine program learning outcomes (PLOs). Each GE Area has defined GE Area Outcomes.
