The Core Humanities Program measures its effectiveness and strives for self-improvement through regular assessment of courses and the program as a whole. Indirect assessment measures include student course evaluations and surveys of all students taking Core Humanities courses each semester. Direct assessment measures take various forms depending on the Student Learning Outcome being assessed, and may include faculty meetings or surveys to discuss how well students are performing certain tasks, standardized assignments graded according to common rubrics, and quizzes or exams that test students' knowledge of key concepts. Assessment data is reported to the Core Curriculum Board according to the assessment schedule for the Core Curriculum.
