About General Education
General education outcome assessment is mission-driven. Curricular goals state what the general education curriculum strives to provide and accomplish within general education courses, and institutional level student learning outcomes (GEOs) identify crucial skills that all graduates should possess at the end of their academic journey at CASC. Performance indicators define the achievement of the outcomes for all stakeholders and serve as criteria to evaluate evidence of student learning. The curriculum map is a visual representation of the skill development of each outcome through core general education courses. Concerning the assessment process, CASC utilizes course-embedded assignments and activities as the direct measures of student learning while the map functions as formative and summative data collection points at the course level.
