Assessment & Research



Over the years, periodic research has been done on First-Year students and the First Year Experience courses.  Currently, FYE faculty are encouraged to incorporate our particular learning outcomes into the development,  teaching and evaluation of their FYE courses.  Building upon these learning outcomes, a student self-assessment instrument (Fall 2012) is now used every semester
