Assessment Committee Reports

The General Education Assessment Committee (GEAC) is responsible for oversight of assessment of student learning in general education at IU Southeast. The GEAC Subcommittees, comprised of one or two committee members, report to the GEAC at the end of the evaluation year, evaluating progress and recommending improvements based on the data.

The committee has adopted plan below for distributing the assessment reports. Those who receive the reports will forward them to the appropriate faculty members to evaluate how outcomes are being achieved and to act on the results in ways that advance student learning and improve educational quality.
