Assessment of Student Outcomes
Outcome A Gender Justice HouseCritical Thinking (undergraduate): Work together and share the workload equitably to progress toward shared objectives learned through structured activities (see below) that occur over a significant period of time.The General Education objectives associated with this Outcome are listed below. - Students will: Use knowledge of group dynamics to select appropriate roles. For this project they will form groups to engage in one of the service learning opportunities offered and/or participate in a common intellectual experience (community read discussion, writing workshop, study or historical material in anticipation of local gender justice trip, etc.) Groups may contain multiple members. - Use knowledge of group management to create effective plans. - Successfully follow the group's plan by following the Director of the Living Learning Community or Faculty Fellow.- Assess contributions of self and others to the group dynamics through self-assessment and participation in group surveys conducted by Director of Living Learning Community.
Outcome C Women's Center AmbassadorsCritical Thinking (undergraduate): Use systematic reasoning to examine and evaluate information and ideas and then synthesize conclusions to propose new perspectives and solutions. This objective focused on career preparation of a cohort of student ambassadors. Students will: Assess relevant information, perspectives and assumptions regarding their career and or graduate preparation through self reported information and interest in participation (info used to create our baseline). Construct logical conclusions based on reason and evidence regarding the need of this information as we discovered a low confidence level and high interest in having Career Center and Faculty assistance building this skill. Formulate novel approaches or create innovative interpretations through doing this work in a group where trust has been generated and where "mistakes" and the perception that growth is expected of occur over time. Evaluate the novel approaches or innovative interpretations through high levels of student engagement.
