[To simplify the process, you may opt to fill out the University Curriculum Committee form prior to application to the FSDC and submit it together with the FSDC's own form, so that you will get it back with Dr. Merenstein's signature already on it.]
Optional: Diversity Assessment Project
Dear Faculty: Please consider becoming part of the Diversity Assessment Project at Central Connecticut State University. It is our hope to be able to show definitively the value of incorporating diversity education into many of our general education and major courses. If you agree to be part of this process, you will be given a document with many different types of assessment questions to review as potential assessment questions for your own class. You can choose any of those questions in addition to developing your own assessment questions. I will then customized your assessment and help you with data collection. We hope to get a publication on this project!
The design of this study involves two parts. First, all students in all classes will be given a pre-test and post-test of the assessment you design. How you want to incorporate the grading of these assignments is up to you, but in my experience, when you make the assessment part of the student’s grades, you will get a more accurate evaluation of each question. The second part of the study involves a meta-analysis. We include your results and the results of all of the professors involved in this project to see whether or not the diversity education is making a difference in our student’s knowledge, understanding, and attitudes about diversity topics.
If you are interested in either participating in the project or learning more about the project, please contact Carolyn Fallahi at email@example.com. Thank you for your consideration.
