Strategies for Student Success: FLC Writing Program Assessment Plan (2008-2013)

During our five year assessment plan, the Writing Program (WP) will examine how it contributes to program-wide liberal education outcomes. As a constituent part of general education, the WP provides students educational experiences that improve their capacities to function socially and academically. Our courses provide a wide range of assignments and readings that seek to strengthen students’ analysis and communication skills. Because we offer a variety of courses and assignments, assessing such skills can be challenging; however, current WP outcomes statements offer us specific criteria by which to evaluate how our courses accomplish articulated goals. This assessment plan, therefore, will collect data that indicates how well our courses accomplish stated outcomes, data that will help us increase students’ opportunities for critical thinking and communication.
