During Fall 2021, the Learning, Equity, and Assessment Program (LEAP, formerly the Student Learning Committee) launched its new ongoing processes for assessing student learning. Building on the strategic planning conducted in Spring 2021, all departments collected and anonymized samples of student work and are in the process of evaluating and reporting on that data. Departmental reports will be shared with chairs later in Spring 2022. We've also embarked on our next round of data collection and are hard at work continuing to develop our website and resources!
