At Chicago State University, assessment is a university-wide activity. Faculty have complete responsibility for designing and implementing academic assessment. Faculty serve as coordinators for each major, graduate program, and each discipline represented in the General Education program. Assessment coordinators work with faculty to identify learning outcomes, develop assessment instruments and rubrics, assess the learning outcomes, analyze assessment results, and implement academic and/or assessment modifications recommended by faculty based on assessment results in order to close the assessment loop. The links below will take you to assessment plans and reports for programs and General Education courses offered by the Geography unit of the Department of Geography, Sociology, History, African American Studies, and Anthropology.
