General Education Assessment
General Education Assessment Framework
The General Education Assessment Framework is based on the learning outcomes for general education approved by the CCSU faculty in Fall 2008. These outcomes appear in the Undergraduate Catalog and represent the basic foundations for life-long learning as rational members of society, to awaken the pleasures of intellectual exploration and to elevate aesthetic sensibilities. Activities designed to assess the effectiveness of general education at CCSU are linked to these outcomes.
