Handbook on Excellence in Learning and Pedagogy


The Senior Integrated Assessment

The Senior Integrated Assessment, conducted in a required seminar or capstone course, allows department faculty and students to examine the latter's success at integrating learning in the major with advanced levels of the transferable skills of liberal learning. The "integrated" aspect of this assessment refers first to the student's ability to synthesize content and methodology belonging to the discipline which the student has accumulated through required courses in the major. 

Integration also refers to the student's ability to blend learning in the major with advanced skills in liberal learning beyond those assessed in the Sophomore/Junior Diagnostic Project: for example, Information Literacy, Quantitative Reasoning, Computer Competency, and Moral Development. 

These senior assessments become occasions to celebrate the student's achievement and often include public presentations to an audience of faculty, other majors, and even guests from other academic and local communities.

Once again, the linked samples exemplify an imaginative variety of performances that reflect real-world work in careers graduating students are about to enter.
