Assessment Procedures

Each senior in this program will be asked to compile a portfolio of work he or she has done in courses in the liberal education core and in the major and to write a short analysis of his or her work. This analysis should include a statement explaining why the chosen pieces were included in the portfolio and what they show about the student’s improvement as he or she has progressed through the program. The portfolio is due two weeks before the spring Assessment Day, when each graduating senior will be interviewed by a departmental team as part of the process of assessing whether departmental goals are being met.
