Departmental Assessment Plans

At the annual gathering of chairs from liberal arts colleges during the meetings of the American Philological Association in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Friday, January 6, 2012 a number of participants expressed interest in sharing assessment plans and learning outcomes, so departments can learn from each other, identify best practices, and perhaps even collaborate with others in developing materials for departmental reviews and accreditation studies. If your department is willing to share their materials with others, please send them to sunoikisisprojects@chs.harvard.edu.

Here are plans that departments have submitted:

Rhodes College [The Department of Greek and Roman Studies developed this plan in 2008 as part of the documentation submitted by Rhodes College to obtain a reaffirmation of accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools: Commission on Colleges.]
