Assessment Requirement (applies to all majors)

In order to assess how well we are meeting our goals and learning objectives, the English department requires all Senior majors to submit papers for assessment to a workbook on Pebblepad and to write a brief (200-500 word) self-assessment.  Specific instructions for assessment portfolios will be sent to graduating majors in October and March, depending on graduation date.  You will need to complete this exercise in order for the DUS’s office to approve you for graduation with a major in English.
