STUDENTS - CHECK IN NEXT SEMESTER TO SIGN UP FOR THE NEXT GULL WEEK!
Demonstrate your academic excellence and help make SU an even better university. Every student matters!
About GULL Week
Gaining Understanding as a Lifelong Learner (GULL) Week occurs in the early part of Fall and Spring semesters. During GULL Week undergraduate students participate in assessments. The information gathered during GULL Week will be used by SU to demonstrate skills that SU students develop and to improve the General Education program. Your participation is needed and important to the University!
Every student matters!Your participation can help us:
know where you are in terms of skills and knowledge
know about your opinions, behaviors, and general feedback
identify what we are doing well and where we can focus on improving
inform revision of our GenEd curriculum
continuously improve students' experience at SU
The more the merrier! Low samples of student data will not accurately represent what is really happening with student learning and outcomes at SU, but large enough samples will allow meaningful data, results, and evidence-based decision-making.
Participated in GULL Week before? Please participate again! Not only do we rotate the assessments we administer in GULL Week from semester-to-semester, but we also hope to have students take the same test several times during their time at SU so we can see if there is any change. For instance, has your Information Literacy improved from when you were an incoming student to a year or two later?
