Relevant MnSCU Policy:
The University Assessment Committee oversees assessment planning and reporting for all departments involved in student learning across the university, including both curricular and co-curricular areas. The committee is charged with assuring that these areas have a commitment to student learning that aligns with the mission, vision and strategic priorities of the university. The Committee reports directly to the Provost and Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs.
The following procedure has been approved to determine continuing approval of general education courses.
These revisions operationalize the policy changes of 2017 requiring assessment of general education classes and establish a regular review of classes with general education (LASC, WI, or FYE) designation for continued congruence with those learning outcomes. The revised policy also clarifies the expectation that all programs, accredited and non-accredited, complete assessment of program learning outcomes as required by program review.
