Assessment at Middlebury
Assessment is a critical step in institutional improvement. At Middlebury, we have ongoing assessment projects in the areas of student learning and the working and learning environment on campus. Ongoing initiatives include:
- Assessment of Student Writing: Kathy Skubikowski is leading a Teagle-funded, portfolio-based assessment of student learning that begins with the FYS experience and tracks student progress forward. This research will allow us to assess the effectiveness of the writing instruction that students receive in their FYS.
- Learning Goals for Majors: The Curriculum Committee is gathering learning goals for all majors at Middlebury. This information will be useful for departments in assessing progress of students in their major.
- New England Consortium on Student Learning (NECASL): Middlebury is a participant in this Teagle-funded study assessing how students learn and make decisions regarding their academic programs.
