General Education Abilities Self-Evaluation

Submitted by Jennifer Elliott on

As I pilot the the Online version of ASB 214, I want to see how much taking this class improves the students' General Education Abilities of Critical Inquiry and Information Literacy, as these are the two skills I have noticed many students are lacking when they first enroll for the face-to-face version of the class. I will assess the students by assigning them a self-evaluation assignment for both of these skills, both at the beginning and the end of the course, to measure how much they feel they have improved.

I applaud these efforts, Jennifer! I will especially look forward to seeing the instruments you will be using! One note, though: Critical Thinking is not one of our Gen Ed abilities, as it is woven into all of our abilities. Did you mean Critical Inquiry? Also, I would encourage you to look at the rubrics for each of these areas on the SAAC website. Let me know if I can help!

Looking forward to how you do this and your results.  Thanks for incorporating the General Abilites Matrix into your course.

Hi Jennifer - I just wanted to follow up with this CATS and see if you have tried anything new this semester with this.  I hope you are doing well.
