*In fall 2010, the University Academic Assessment Committee, in collaboration with the General Education Assessment Council, recommended to the Faculty Senate that SU engage in a pilot course-embedded assessment to collect information about student learning in General Education courses.

This proposal (doc) was supported by the Faculty Senate, and the pilot will begin in fall 2011. By the end of the five year pilot, all of the Student Learning Goal within the “Skills” area will be assessed. This would include the following Student Learning Goals: Critical Thinking, Command of Language (Reading, Writing, Speaking, & Listening), Quantitative Literacy, Information Literacy, and Interpersonal Communication.
