2012-2013 Institutional and General Education Assessment
This academic year, we are focusing on assessing student learning in relation to the following Institutional Learning Outcomes
Graduates of Westmont College will
- demonstrate literacy in biblical and orthodox Christian faith (Christian Understanding)
- demonstrate faithfulness in Christian service (Christian Practices/ Affections)
The first outcome is assessed at the GE level. The corresponding GE outcome reads as follows:
Students will demonstrate literacy in Christian scripture and Christian doctrine (Biblical and Theological Canons).
The Christian Life Survey was selected to assess student learning in relation to the Christian Practices/Affections outcome.
The Faith-Learning Faculty Roudtable project supported by the Lilly Fellows Small Grant was initiated in fall 2012. The project is directed by Dr.Tatiana Nazarenko. Click here to retrieve the Faith Learning Question form we are using for data collection in Fall 2012.
