General Education Assessment
General Education Assessment Report (GEAR) under Department and Program Forms
Departments and programs that offer majors should be preparing for the process of general education assessment which occurs at the department level at Kenyon.
The following are the College's goals for general education:
- Students learn to acquire knowledge and understanding of arts, humanities, natural sciences, and society.
- Students learn to be prepared to use information technology and to make sense of the information they find.
- Students learn to formulate ideas rigorously and to communicate them effectively, orally and in writing.
- Students learn to assess arguments.
- Students learn quantitative skills and to analyze data.
- Students learn to work creatively.
- Students learn to work collaboratively.
The department/program is required to meet annually to discuss the general education goals and outcomes and prepare a report. Some members of the department/program (rotating on an annual basis) prepare for the meeting by filling out a report from one of their classes that indicates which goals are addressed in their classes, and how well students have achieved the goal based on specific information about the results of a test or assignment that relates to the goal. For departments of ten or less members, half the members should assess a class and complete tables each year. For departments over ten, no more than five members should assess a class and prepare tables in a given year.
