Assessment of the Liberal Arts Essentials (LAE)

The LAE assessment process begins by specifying the course goals for student learning and then developing a plan that evaluates how well students have met those goals.  At Muskingum University, "Streams of Evidence" are used as a method for determining the meeting of goals.  To be considered valid by the Assessment Committee an assessment plan must have at least two streams of evidence, with a different evaluation tool used in each stream. 

For each LAE course below, the assessment plan contains information regarding the Goals for Student Learning in the LAE for the course, the streams of evidence used, the evaluation criteria for each stream, and other information relating to the assessment process for the course.  Please feel free to look at the plans for different courses to get an idea as to how these plans may vary. The current version of the Plan for Assessing the LAE was most recently approved by the faculty on 01-24-2012, and specifies the process through which LAE Assessment is carried out.

When a course has been selected for evaluation, the instructor is required to submit an Assessment Report for that course/semester.  The university's Assessment Committee has developed an Assessment Report Creation Presentation that details the process of completing an Assessment Report. 

The 2008 Letter to the North Central Association gives a brief overview of the Muskingum University's LAE Assessment process, as well as a bit of the background on what lead to the current plan.

Faculty: Use the [new window] Assessment Report Form whenever you perform an LAE Assessment.

  • For instructions on how to complete the LAE Assessment Report, see the Assessment Report Creation [new window] Presentation.
